Martin GLEESON and Ann GLEESON
County Tipperary to Nepean Township
Surname: Gleeson Tierney Murray
Looking for information on the descendants of Martin Gleeson and Ann Gleeson.
Children: Michael m. Eliza O'MEARA (O'Mara), one son Michael, may
have moved to Clinton, Iowa, USA; John m. Margaret Tierney 1858, they moved to
Mitchell, South Dakota; Mary m. Roderick Cauley (Crawley) 1853, 3 children?;
and Honora m. James Douras 1860. Would also like to know if Martin came from
Silver Mines, Co Tipperary, Ireland. All the above children married at St. Phillips,
Richmond, Carleton County, Ontario, Canada.

I am trying to find some information on my gg grandmother, Anne Gleeson who
was born in London Twp, Ontario in 1824. I thought that perhaps she might
have been a daughter of Martin Gleeson as I have been unable to locate any
other Gleeson's who had emigrated that early. She married a William Bastard
in London. They were Anglican. She had two children, Elizabeth b 1850 m.
Thomas Stanfield, and Dr. Wm Clay Bastar.
Can you give me any suggestions on Gleeson family members who may have been
in Ontario by 1824. There is also a possibility that Anne's father was a
surgeon in the British Army at the battle of Waterloo.
Thanks for any help you can provide... Kathy Gabin

There was a Gleeson family in the London area early. The father I believe was
William Gleeson and his son's name was Richard (still some living descendants and
more in Michigan). Most unusual for a Gleeson family to be EC and non Catholic
(probably an interesting story). I have more info but will need to look in the files.

I may have some information on your Martin Gleeson - Ann Gleeson ancestors.
Last year I hand wrote an index of all Gleesons in Kilmore / Silvermines.
I recall this family of Gleesons from Garryard. As you probably know there were
many Gleeson families in the parish of Kilmore - my estimate is at least 60
families at the time of 1840s Famine.
I will look for my notes and advise you.
