This township was originally called Bismark. As of this date, the origin is unknown. It was renamed LeBron in honor of Capt. Leo P LeBron, Corps of Engineers. Capt. LeBron was the first U. S. Army officer from Oklahoma to die in World War I. Prior to entering the Army, Capt. LeBron was a civil engineer for the Ft. Smith and Western Railway and was stationed in Guthrie.

The only community to actually exist in this township was Bowman, located in section 30. Bowman took its name from John Bowman, the first postmaster.

There are two known cemeteries in LeBron Township. The first is known as the Bismark or Bocox, and is located in the NW1/4, NE1/4 of section 10. This was originally on the John Bocox farm. It was started April 24, 1893.

The second is the Bussard family cemetery and is located in section 17.

The only post office to have operated in LeBron township was at Bowman from June 25, 1890 to September 15, 1900.
