Leon Webb was buried in Arlington National Cemetery in July, 1953. I have not found an obit for Leon. I do not know if he was still married to 2nd wife Wilma at the time of his death. I have since learned that Leon died of tuberculosis in the VA hospital in New York.
I have yet to find divorce documents for Bainie Cassell Webb, Leon's first wife. Leon was living in Asheville, Buncombe County, NC in 1941. I have seen his draft registration card using Ancestry.com.
A death certificate might list Wilma as next of kin. In 1945 Leon is a bell captain in a hotel in Miami. His wife is Wilma with a son 4 years old and a daughter 7 months old. I do not know if the son was his, but oral history says the daughter is his.
This is all I know at this point, but any assistance in this search is appreciated. My mother in law is 87 years old.
