Leo Paul Gaul was the son of John Gaul and Katherine Meyer who were both born in Luxemborg. His parents divorced when Leo was young and the family lost track of him for some time. Leo's father, John Gaul, died in 1930 and Katherine remarried Robert Bush and moved to Chicago, Illinois.

Leo Gaul entered the Military in 1935 and probably married Elfrieda while in Germany. Before his death he worked at the St Paul Post Office. I do not know the maiden name of Elfrieda but she was born in Worms, Germany as I have an obituary for her but it is not very informative.

Leo and Elfrieda had no children. Leo was the first cousin of my mother Catherine Agnes (Gaul) Meech.
