Photos, corrections or data for your ancestor can be submitted here.
The soldiers with ** (red stars) have been added by submitters, they were not in the original data, but I feel that they should be included if they served during WWI.

Gillis (or Gilles) Leon Memphis
Came Home
My grandfather, Gillis (or Gilles) Leon Knoblock, was born on 28 Jun 1892  in Raceland, Lafourche Parish, LA to Voltaire Adelard and Ophelia Baudoin Knoblock.
He lived for a time in Georgia before moving to Memphis Tn.
He served in WWI, although I don't have all of his military history at this time.  We called him "Graddy" because his oldest grandchild (I am his youngest grandchild) couldn't say "Granddaddy".
He never lost his thick Cajun accent (I really don't think I understood much of what he said!).
He died on 9 Feb 1972 here in Memphis.
His wife Gladys died a few months later,  on 18 May 1972.
