Gleesons

IMG_7478IMG_7529

We know that the Gleesons came from Cappamore near Limerick.  Turns out there are two families – or one family divided – in Cappamorre  “on the Kyle” – a homestead on a hill above the village. Gary found one and some years later Gael & Glenna found the other.  It seems that both claimed alligiance, if not relation, to their American visitors.

Now one of them has been doing the family tree and I expect we’ll discover some interesting info on how Timothy, our great grandfather, who left the  farm and came to America in 1853,  is connected to the family still “at home”.

We had a wonderful time discovering and visiting with a great crowd of Gleesons however they may be related.
