Hi Michael,

I don't know if you got your information from previous postings I made on the Gleaves family or not. I am also descended from the Matthew Gleaves who died in Augusta Co., VA, in 1760 and who allegedly came from Willingham, England.

Research of Williamham, England records has turned up a Matthew Gleaves who married Amy __?__ and who was buried on 3/27/1709. He had the following children: Alice, baptized 1675, Ann, baptized 1688, Thomas, baptized 1/23/1680/81, and Elizabeth, baptized 1677. Thomas, who was baptized 1/23/1680/81 married Anne Sneesby on 9/29/1718 and was buried on 6/22/1740. Thomas had the following children: Thomas, baptized 11/16/1720, Joseph, baptized 1/5/1724/25, Matthew (no information) and John, baptized 3/13/1734/35. Thomas wrote a will in 1740 in which he mentions his sons Thomas, John ('when age 21"), Mathew ("when age 21") and Joseph. This is the only Matthew Gleaves in Willingham in the right age bracket possibly be the Matthew Gleaves who emigrated to America about 1745 and who died in Augusta Co., VA in 1760.
