Looking for information on Michael Gleeson from 16 Trenton St East Boston.
Michael was born in Ireland in January of 1851, emigrated to the US (East Boston) in 1866, married Catharine Ahern (sometimes called Kate) in about 1883, had around twelve children, nine of whom appear to have survived into majority.
My maternal grandfather was one of them, Dennis F Gleeson, born Jul 30 1885, died around 1942 in Everett MA. Dennis first wife was Mary Ryan, who died shortly after they were married. My grandmother was Margaret Gleeson, Dennis' 2nd wife.
(Michael Gleeson died in a house fire at 16 Trenton St in 1938)
His children included John, Dennis, Ellen, Mary (who later became Minnie Pearson) Annie, Joseph, James, Edward and Michael.
They owned 16 Trenton for quite some time, and Michael Sr was listed as a bartender, wine steward, liquor dealer and real estate man in the various census and city records.
