My grandfather's name was Jean Paul LaBelle. He died in 1952. He gave very little information about his family, except to say he was estranged from them. He did memtion a sister named Marguarite (sp?) and a brother named William Johnson, who came to see him (found him?) in Danville, Virginia. They spoke on a street corner for only a moment and parted.
He was an artist. He worked with oils and was very talented. He also did wing walking on airplanes. He spoke other languages and was highly educated. He named his youngest boy William Johnson LaBelle after his brother. He named his youngest daughter Phoebe Omlie LaBelle for the female pilot by the same name.
To this day, we know nothing more about him.
