Leon Paul Lux, Sr. was born ca 1891 in Louisiana. He is listed in the 1910 census record for Orleans Parish, New Orleans, LA.
and in the New Orleans city directory for 1917. He appears in the city directory for Houston, Harris Co. TX for the years 1918 and 1919 as a single male. His occupation is always listed as engraver and this is what has been told to me by older relatives. Leon was married on 18 May 1919 to Julia Elizabeth Arnold. This was a second marriage and he is known to have children by a previous marriage but I have no information about them. Leon and Julia are listed in the Houston city directory for the years 1920 through 1927. They had two children, Leon Paul Lux, Jr. and Leatrice Joy Lux(my mother). Leon and Julia were divorced on 18 January 1930 and in the Houston City Dirctory for 1931 Leon is listed with wife Maud. I have no information on his death or death location. Your father Gary Duane Lux is my 1st cousin.
Thanks for the response to my querry.
Katherine Sisson
