Martin Matthew Gelchion I (1858-1899) aka Matthew Gelchion aka Martin Gelchion. He worked as a gardener. (b. 1858, Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, USA - d. September 16, 1899, Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, USA)

In some documents he is listed as Matthew Gelchion and in others as Martin Gelchion. The Gelchion name in the US is unique to the descendents of Richard and Bridget. The name may have been "Gleason" in Ireland but was misunderstood when Richard Gelchion entered the country.

Matthew is the son of Richard Gelchion I (1832-?) and Bridget Reynolds (1833-1896).

Matthew had the following siblings: Anna Katherine Gelchion (1851-?) who married Michael Joseph Dermody II (1851-?); Michael William Gelchion (1895-?); Richard Gelchion II (1860-1944) a gardener who married Catherine (Katie) A. Farley (1861-1934); John Gelchion (1862-?); William F. Gelchion I (1865-?) a gardener who married Mary A. Maloney (1865-1943); and Patrick Gelchion (1868-1893).

Matthew married Jane E. Hogan (1861-1949) of Ireland on January 13, 1886 at Saint Paul's Roman Catholic Church in Jersey City.

Their children include: Matthew John Gelchion I (1886-1966) who married Mary E. Sullivan (1890-1967); Mary Catherine Gelchion (1888-1889) who died as infant; Elizabeth Gelchion (1890-?) who married William Henry Haney (1888-1985); Winifred Gelchion (1895-?) aka Winie Gelchion, who married Joseph Furey I; Jane B. Gelchion (1895-?) aka Jennie Gelchion, who married Patrick Cryan (1894-1961) aka Packy Cryan; and Katherine Gelchion II (1892-?) aka Kitty Gelchion, who married John Morgan.

Matthew Gelchion died of tuberculosis.

He was buried in Holy Name Cemetery in Jersey City, along with many of his siblings and children.
