                  Is this him?

                  "United States World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KZ6S-W2J : 13 March 2018), Edward Franklin Gilreath, 1917-1918; citing Greenville County no 3, South Carolina, United States, NARA microfilm publication M1509 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,877,665.

                  If so, then this is probably him, misspellled.  (Same as Eddie found.)

                  "South Carolina Deaths, 1915-1965," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N9XZ-NY2 : 5 April 2018), Edward F. Gilbreath, 27 Jun 1917; citing , Gilbreath, Edward F., 1917, Department of Archives and History, State Records Center, Columbia; FHL microfilm 1,913,487.

                  Could this be Leonard with a sister named Lucile, and their mom remarried by 1920?  On the image, it might say 'Carrie,' not 'Connie.'

                  "United States Census, 1920," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M6ZV-8XS : accessed 26 July 2018), Leonard Gilreath in household of John Whitlock, Grove, Greenville, South Carolina, United States; citing ED 36, sheet 5B, line 71, family 91, NARA microfilm publication T625 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1992), roll 1698; FHL microfilm 1,821,698.

                  Mrs Whitlock, daughter of WM Fisher and Sarah Burnett, died in Piedmont, Greenville, South Carolina in 1920.  She died of tuberculosis, same as Ed, but a few years later. 

                  "South Carolina Deaths, 1915-1965," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N968-PG4 : 5 April 2018), Carrie Whitlock, 27 Mar 1920; citing , Whitlock, Carrie, 1920, Department of Archives and History, State Records Center, Columbia; FHL microfilm 1,913,584.

                  Being this one is Grove Station Piedmont Edward F Gilreath died June 27, 1917 would probably be his father I'm going to need proof of him being married to Carrie Fisher the Fisher family I'm related to would also be from Piedmont,SC.

                  Thanks for helping I would like all information on these folks I will work on them some tonight and tomorrow after I get back from the dentist. Lol

                  Ed and Carrie were living with the Fisher family in 1910, before Leonard's birth.  Stand by.

                  Here it is:

                  "United States Census, 1910," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M5D4-9K7 : accessed 26 July 2018), Edward Gilreath in household of Warren M Fisher, Grove, Greenville, South Carolina, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) ED 33, sheet 2A, family 24, NARA microfilm publication T624 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1982), roll 1461; FHL microfilm 1,375,474.

                  Carrie Fisher Gilreath Whitlock is what I can see her name was. Thanks I'm adding
                  You're welcome, Donnie.

                    OK I guess I need proof Carrie Fisher was a daughter of Warren it doesn't list her as daughter? Thanks for helping
                    See Carrie Whitlock death cert and 1920 Census.  More proof than that, you're on your own.
                    Thanks. for helping
