Hi Frank, thanks for posting the census record on my great grandfather William H. Gleason.  For your information, I've been familiar with this particular census record for several years -- I originally obtained it through Ancestry.com.  But again, thanks for all your help anyways!  

I recently busted through my brick-wall a few weeks ago by reviewing some of my autosonomal genetic matches through FTDNA's Family Finder and I now believe that William H. Gleason is the son of James Dagg Gleeson.

Again, thanks for all of your help and have a nice day!

If you could provide more info, that would help people help you. Do you know any more than what's in the profile? And where have you already searched? Have you found any records?

In the 1880 census, his 20 year old sister is living with his family.  That could open a door for you.
