 1940 Census says this:

Household
# Name Relation Gender Age
25. Block, Joseph L Head M 49
26. Block, Hattie Wife F 45
27. Block, Helen Daughter F 19
28. Block, Stanley Son M 18
29. Block, Joseph Son M 16
30. Block, Clarence Son M 11
31. Block, Richard Son M 9
32. Kniola, Julius Son-in-Law M 27
33. Kniola, Rose Daughter F 24
34. Kniola, Thomas Grand Son M 2
35. Kniola, Gerald Grand Son M 1
36. Pawlak, Anna Mother-in-Law F 76

This Gives you her sister Rose's married name and two of her children. It gives you Hattie's maiden name spelling. It tells you that both Joseph and his mother-in-law were from Poland and were naturalized. I don't see the 9 year old son Richard in your tree.

It list in the Bio, her dates and place of death, her survivors and those who proceeded her in death. The survivor list includes the first name of any spouse. There are no links listed to others but her burial place is listed.

 There is a Find a Grave Memorial for a Stanley Block at URL

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=57443998

Since the 1940 Census listed him as Stanley not Stanislaus, this may be your man. The photo of him there is from a 1941 High School Yearbook. Might be worth a look.

John Louis Akard commented on person Brown N. Leftwich :
 1930 Census list John as a Blacksmith. It shows

Household

Head John L Leftwich 48
Wife Este V Leftwich 30
Son Alfred L Leftwich 17
Son George D Leftwich 14
Son Christeen V Leftwich 3 years 7 months

Ester is listed as married at 26 years old and John at 23. This tells you he was married before (we already knew this but it's a clue we could use if we didn't).

The 1940 Census list

Household

Head John Leftwitch 59
Wife Ester Leftwitch 41
Son George Leftwitch 24
Daughter Christine Leftwitch 13
Daughter Jean Leftwitch 5

The census recorded that John Owned a house worth $1000.00 in a Rural area. He was a Blacksmith in Hot Springs.

I hope this has been of some help. Sometimes the access to the Census is not available to all. I gave you 4 different Census records to consider. Thank you for your time. 
John Louis Akard commented on person Brown N. Leftwich :
 The 1920 Census list

Household

Head Jno L Leftwich 39
Son Brown N Leftwich 13
Son Thos B Leftwich 11
Son Alfred L Leftwich 7
Son George D Leftwich 4 years, 3 months

Enumerators often use Jno to abbreviate John or Jonathan. Lucy had passed in 1915 so John was a Widower. He didn't marry Ester until 10/31/1925. Christine was born 8/27/1926 
John Louis Akard commented on person Brown N. Leftwich :
 If you go to URL

https://www.myheritage.com/research/collection-10132/1910-united-states-federal-census?s=114186841&itemId=84552904-&groupId=a76a67737b6014f388c7b94f7cbbf605&action=showRecord#fullscreen

At the bottom of the page is listed

Household

Head John L Leftwich 27
Wife Lucy A Leftwich 24
Son Brown N Leftwich 3
Son Tom B Leftwich 1 year, 6 months

Tom is listed on the next page. Lucy has 2-2 in the columns for how many children and how many still living. They had been married 5 years. The Enumerator listed Brown as 3. The transcriber made an error and listed him as 24. I feel you need to change Brown's gender

John Louis Akard commented on person <Private> Leftwich (born Witt) :
 The 1940 Census list this family
Household
Relation to head Name Age
Head John Leftwitch 59
Wife Ester Leftwitch 41
Son George Leftwitch 24
Daughter Christine Leftwitch 13
Daughter Jean Leftwitch 5

Now the spelling doesn't quite match but the census takers often made such mistakes. This places Ester's date of birth at Circa 1899. It also places Christine's half brother in the household at that time. It also adds another daughter to the mix. It list John as a Black Smith and George as a General Laborer. What say you?
