Husband of Joanna L. Ayer Gleason

JAMES H. GLEASON, farmer, Section 13, P. O. Pleasant Grove, came to Kansas in 1854; settled in Lawrence, and the following year moved to Willow Springs Township, where he still resides on his farm, containing 160 acres, which he has improved. When he commenced on this place, he had no near neighbors, but now every farm adjoining him is well-improved. His stock of horses, cattle and hogs shows him to be a good farmer, and his house and barns are among the best in the town. Mr. Gleason was born in Saratoga Springs, N. Y., November 10, 1826, but when a child his parents moved to Hamburg, Erie Co., N. Y., where he remained for several years, and then moved to Crawford County, Penn., and there resided until he came to the State. He was burned out by Quantrill, 1863; house, barns and timber in yard all destroyed. Mr. G. was united in marriage in Lawrence, Kan., July 7, 1863, to Miss Joanna L., daughter of Charles Ayer, Esq. They have three children - Charles J., Clifton A. and Alice J. Mr. G. and family are members of the Methodist Church.
