Leon Luxford Loyall


Early Twentieth Century Men Support Suffrage


Leon Luxford Loyall, from Willowbrook, Louisa County, Virginia, is one of many individuals to join the Equal Suffrage League. He was born on November 1, 1876 and is noted as being a teacher at the time he registered to vote in 1902. He married Ada Blanch Bagby on January 30, 1901, and together they had one known child, Elsie True Loyall two years later. However, Mrs. Ada Blanch Bagby Loyall passed away at the mere age of 22, though her death year is unknown.

In 1918, Leon L. Loyall registered for the United States World War I Draft. The paperwork notes that he was 41, of medium height and build, a native-born citizen, and had gray eyes and brown hair. In 1930, Loyall is listed as living with his daughter and her family, which he presumably did so until his death October 1, 1950.

On the back of the Equal Suffrage League membership card, Loyall wrote, “Will help in Farmer’s Union and wants Mrs. V to speak before some of their meetings.”
