    Would you have any information on Sgt. Benjamin Waite and his wife Martha Leonard who settled in Hatfield, Ma? He is part of my family tree and would like any information.

      Hi, Mable.
      The Wood Museum of Springfield History (at the Quadrangle) has a great deal of Leonard family history — genealogies, documents, and archival material. I don’t know specifically about Mary Leonard and Benjamin Waite, but it would be worth your while to have a look.

      I have done a great deal of research on Ben and Martha and have been invited to lecture on them and their lives. They are my 8th G grandparents and I live in that part of Hatfield which is now Williamsburg. I would be pleased to explore this with you if you would like to contact me. .
