Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. One of the writer's early boyhood recollections is of the deep respect and veneration which his mother and her Sisters always held for their grandmother, Patience Gleason. In later years, when genealogical research became an interest ing recreation and a means of relief from business cares, the Gleason line of ancestry naturally claimed attention. But before the investigation had progressed to any considerable extent, it developed, through correspondence that other members of the family were at work in this field and that a great deal of valuable genealogical and historical matter had been collected. The late Daniel A. Gleason of Boston and the late joseph Meade Gleason of Cincinnati, working together, had made one collection of records and Mr. Albert H. Gleason of Chicago, working practically alone for nearly 13 years, had made another large collection, which also included some records prepared by Mrs. Jane H. Gleason of Cassopolis, Mich. Before any definite steps were taken towards the publishing of any of these records, Messrs. Daniel A. Gleason and Joseph Meade Gleason 'both died. Feeling that the work already done ought to be preserved to future generations, the writer proposed to undertake the publishing of a Gleason Genealogy to be com piled from his own and the other collections of records referred to. This proposition met with the hearty approval of Mr. Albert H. Gleason of Chicago and of Lieut. Howard S. Gleason of Louis ville, Ky., who had charge of the collection made by his father and Mr. Daniel A. Gleason, and all these collections were accordingly sent to the writer.
