Grandfather Leo was a notorious bohemian and couldn't be bothered with being a good husband/father.  "Mama Blancita" was 16 when they married.  They had 7 children, including Roland Ruby's father.  This union begat the descendants  featured in the "homeland visit" photos found in the later decades. It's been alleged that Ruby is the grandchild that most resembles Leo.  Note the right hand holding cane and it's strong resemblance to Ruby's Arco hand.  circa 1924.
