Leo was a son of Robert Schmidt and Helena Ohm. He was a very successful farmer living near Armstrong, Kossuth County, Iowa. Once when the breeze was from the wrong direction and a visitor complained of the smell from the hog yard, Leo said that was the smell of money!
He married Elna Klatt, daughter of Ben Klatt and Martha Becker, in 1940, but she died soon after their marriage.
He married Ruth Ann Kracht, daughter of Gottlieb Sebastian Kracht--himself a very successful farmer in adjacent Emmet County--and Regina Susan Helwig, 17 March 1942 in Fairmont, Martin County, Minnesota, which is just across the state line from Armstrong.
