"Charles Leiby played clarinet ..."
Leiby's (Newspapers and Greeting Cards) and Coat's Jewelry Store, circa 1956 in the Odd Fellows building. I.O.O.F. No. 34.
Let me guess: I.O.O.F. - International Order of Odd Fellows.

Charles Leiby played clarinet in Sousa's band. He was my great uncle. My mother, Grace, was born to Charles' sister, Laura, but since this birth was out of wedlock, my mother was led to believe that her grandparents, Emma and Charles Sr., were her parents (until age 65). Charles had another sister, Elsie Stocken, who played organ in the Reformed Church for many years, and a brother, Harold, whose middle name, Sanders, is mine. I spent a few summers in Warwick and stayed with Joe Stocken. If anyone in Warwick has any idea of my real grandfather's identity, you can mail it to me at 7036 Park Circle, North port, FL 34287. Thanks.
