I just recently ran across your web site and I believe there is a connection but I'm a little confused. My grandmother was Margaret Bell TRAFFANSTEDT b:22Feb1885,AL m:14Oct1900,Dawson,AL d:18Sep1951,Porterville,CA. She was married to Charles Evans LEAKE b:23Oct1879,Dawson,AL d:12July1980,Porterville,CA.
My grandmother's parent's were William James TRAFFANSTEDT and Hannah Ofelia CARR. Jim Taylor TRAFFANSTEDT and Isabel HILL were her grandparents. Your tree shows a "Jim" as the only child of William and Hannah. I'm not familiar with Jim but I remember my grandmother had at least two sisters(Ollie and Betty-nicknamed Duck). Perhaps Jim is a brother of Ollie and Betty. If you're interested,I have pictures that my mother passed on to me of William and Hanna TRAFFANSTEDT and also Isabel HILL .
