Tombstone Tuesday -- John & Margaret (Tierney) Gleeson

Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Portland, Oregon
John Gleeson
1832 - 1915
Margaret His Wife
1835 - 1920

These are my great-great grandparents on my paternal grandmother's side.  They both were born in Ontario, Canada.  By 1880, they were living in Mitchell, South Dakota and John was both a farmer and a hotel keeper.  They moved to Portland, Oregon around 1910.  John and Margaret (Tierney) had ten children, five boys and five girls, all who lived to adulthood.  They also had fourteen grandchildren.  John and Margaret are buried at Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Portland.
