Leon Blackwell often used the middle initial of E, but actually had no middle name. I only included it as it is on his grave stone, and he would often go by the name L.E. Blackwell. He married Elizabeth Mae Hames, August 05,1919 in Wolfe City, Hunt County, Texas. His parents were John Henry Blackwell and Amanda Emogene Rebecca 'Emma' Robnett Blackwell. His Grandparents were James Franklin Blackwell and Nancy Caroline Petty Blackwell.

Leon had 9 siblings named: Sisters: Erin (Nelson), Pearl, Ruth (husband Norman Beall), Olene (Horton), Ardeen/Ardene (husband Gilbert Waddle), & "Willa Mae" (known as Aunt Bill & her husband was Hugh Wisdom). Brothers: Dewey (wife Nell), Fred, and Wood.

Leon and Elizabeth had 4 children, named Raymond Leon Blackwell, Majorie Nell Blackwell Sparks, JoAnn Blackwell (also McCaleb) Grady , and Betty Jean Blackwell (also Holliman) McClain. Leon last worked as an insurance salesman.

Leon had Black hair, Brown eyes and an olive complexion. It has been said that he was of English & Black Dutch heritage.

I located Leon's grave via the Grayson County, Texas Tombstone Transcription Project
