many thanks for your referral to Michael Leete. He was able to answer my questions and yes, I am indeed a decendent of Leete's Island Leetes, through Harvey Bidkar Leete and his second wife, Mary Elizabeth Isbell.
There actually is no such person as Hanford Isbell Leete (Family Search had it all wrong!) There is however a Hanford Isbell who was the father of Mary Elizabeth Isbell. Her son, my g-grandfather, George Hanford Leete, was named for her father, thus the name Hanford. Perhaps we are cousins? Again, many thanks for your help! Sincerely, Elizabeth
