The CT and VT Torrences

In Reply to: Re: John Torrance and Sarah Pelton 1850 Jerusalem NY by Tom Fetters of 1443

I have discovered the error, but not the resolution for it.

We have a family group of:
William Torrance
Thomas Torrance (1751-1842) x 1772 Eunice Woodbridge CT
Samuel Torrance (1752-1843) x 1781 Anna Roxbury, CT
Hugh Torrance
Styles Torrance (1756- ) Woodbridge, CT
Joseph Torrance (1759-1834) x 1782 Sarah Woodbridge, CT

William Henry Torrance (1758-1828) x 1809 Saloma Dains
They were at Jerusalem, NY
ERROR William was too young to have WHT

Tom had
12 children who are known

Sam had

Styles had
Styles Torrance (1784-1838) x 1802 Matilda Hubbard

Joseph had Riley Torrance x Dalana Washburn
and maybe these three:
Catherine x David Stickney
Anna x Simeon Trumbull

William Henry Torrance and Saloma had 10 kids who are well known. The 9th is Marcus Lafayette Torrance (1828-1897) of Bath, NY.

This Marcus Lafayette had the three kidsL
Lafayette (1850
Frank (1852
Charles (1863

HASTINGS Torrence had 5 kids:
Aaron Burr Torrance
Albert Mattison Torrance of Benington, VT
Austin Torrance x Tryphena Torrance Trumbull (1811-1869)
Julia Torrance
and William Henry Torrance (1787-1828) x 1809 Saloma Dains ERROR
WHT seems to be too old for this group.

Anna (Hastings sister) had Tryphena Torrance Trumbull (see above)

This second WHT has only 5 kids credited, but they are the same.

In this case, Lafayette has two kids who are
Henry Edward Torrance (1844-
Fayette A Torrance (1852-
and they live in Worthington, Nobles Co, MN

Henry is married to Ellen (1844- ) and they have three kids:
Ester (1869
Gertrude (1872
Claire (1876

Fayette is married to Sophia Torrance (1859- )
abd they have
Richard (1877-
Eugenia "Jennie" Torrance (1879-

I can not resolve this error now, but if anyone can give it a good study, I think the clues are there.

Hastings may be the clue to the resolution. We need to know more about this man.
