Thank you Alice. I do have that information. The pictures and information are from my ancestry account. I just don't know where to go next because if he was an orphan I have so little information on him.
Thanks for your input.
Dear Ms. Pinto,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1880 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1890 Census; the Population Schedules for the 1900 Census, and the Population Schedules for the 1910 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1920 Census, and the Population Schedules for the 1930 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information about Leo Joseph Thomas.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1.

We suggest that you review NARA’s Resources for Genealogists, as well as the History Hub Blog titled Suggestions and Advice for Family History Researchers. Also, the FamilySearch Research wiki for Arkansas Genealogy may be useful.
You may wish to contact the Texas State Library and Archives Commission for information on vital records from before 1903. Including any name variants or broadening your search for the surrounding years may be helpful in locating the information you seek. In addition, the FamilySearch Research wiki for how to find Vital Records for Texas may be helpful.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
