    Leblanc may have died abroad which could explain lack of paper trail in the US. He may have re-enlisted to serve during WW2 and got KIA or MIA (not all service records and war casualties were properly documented) or decided to stay wherever he had been sent after the war. Also his family background indicates that he likely had relatives in Canada and may have moved there. Unfortunately his last name is a very common one on both sides of the border, making research difficult. Also he was part of the last generation of self-reliant rural Americans who routinely lived their whole lives without carrying any sort of official document because it wasn't required. Assuming Leblanc was Catholic, he would typically obtain social benefits through his Church, so church records could be a source of info.
