- that lady you are talking about was married to my first cousin james(jimmy )gleason-little joe is joe gleason who is my second cousin. my second cousin purchased part of the gleason farm and joe purchased the home place.
james pased away in 1986 . .i think
jim and verla had three children.
verla remarried the vet that you r talking about. they left scranton and moved to illinois.verla had some health problems and passed away . i think she passed away 2-4 years back.i did not ever meet he vet husband. verla was a charming lady.
they had a thread about the allbaugh family and coach rhoads a few days back-about donations to iowa state and possibly being a friend of coach rhoads. i think he owns several patents and i think he owns the patent on roundup and several other agricultural patents. i also think he has been big in the fertilizer business,too.
he has his own golf course in ankeny and his closest buddy at iowa state is johnny orr.
