There is one Gleeson in Toomevara in the Irish phone book (118.ie/) You could write to him
I'd like to know if there are any descendants still living in the Toomevara district or elsewhere whose ancestory traces back to Roger Gleeson and/or John Gleeson who lived at the townland Knockane Castle near Toomevara in 1824/25.
They are listed in the Tithe Applottment Books as tenant farmers on Cole Bowen estate and I believe Roger to be my 4 times great grandfather but have no paper trail to follow down from him.
Any hints or clues would be most appreciated. A direct descendant would be fantastic!!
Thanks for reading!
