Elkader Register, Thur., 02 Oct. 1902.
On Monday afternoon, Sept. 29th, 1902, after an illness of five weeks, the only time he has been known to be sick, Daniel Gleason died at the home of his son D. E. Gleason, at this place.
The subject of this sketch was born in County Tipperary, Ireland, March 7th, 1825, the son of Edward and Mary Gleason, who came to America in 1837, locating at New York, and in 1842 moving to western New York. Daniel learned the blacksmith trade in the native country, serving an apprenticeship of five years between the ages of 15 and 20. In 1846 he came to America, landing in Boston and from there joined his parents in New York. In 1854 they all came to Dubuque where Daniel worked until 1856 when he came to Elkader and has followed the trade of blacksmith until taken sick.
In the fall of 1853 he married Johanna Ryan, and to them were born three children, Timothy, Mrs. Dennis H. Liddy, of Monticello, Iowa, and D. E. Gleason, of this place. Mrs. Gleason died about twelve years ago, since which time deceased has made his home with his son Daniel.
Deceased was a hard working man, known and respected by a large circle of friends for whom he has worked for nearly half a century here in Elkader. He will be missed in the community.
The funeral yesterday at St. Joseph's church was largely attended by sorrowing friends of the family.
