Deborah, I have searched my Gleason Roots to King William and King & Queen Counties Virginia. The farthest back I have gotten is a Patrick Gleason who was born in 1759 and died in 1822. I don't know if this would be the same Gleasons that you have because I don't know where he was born. Wether it was Ireland or America. However,he fought in the Revolutionary war. If you think This could be the same people please contact me I have more info.
