My maternal grandmother was Mary Gleason, born in Brooklyn 1873 or 1874.She was oprphaned at aboout 7 yrs and raised by the Sisters of Charity in Brooklyn. She had a sister who was apparently retarded and who remained with the sisters. My mother had told me that Mary's parents were either from County Mayo or Roscommon and probably came to the U.S. during the famine years--1845-47. Mary married William Roberts in Brooklyn about 1897 and had two daughters--My mother, Winifred and my Aunt Elizabeth. I'd be interested in any info about Mary or suggestions as to where to try to get more info.What I have is very minimal.
