Facts are slim on this family.

You can try going to Beaver County on the web, but little is posted there. You can also see which Torrences are buried at Beaver Cemetery.

I found Willis in the Census and in 1910 his wife is listed as Della which you had as Dillie.

There is another child, Harry, who was born in 1909, so I am not sure if this Della's child or not.

Anyway, if this helps, one family tree posted on the web shows the grandparents of Willis as:

James Torrence (1797-1874) x Elizabeth Dever ( -1873) of Hanover, Beaver County, PA

Their child is:
John Torrence (1829-1888) x Harriet (1831- )

and their children are:
Gussie Torrence 1860
James A Torrence 1863
Matilda Torrence 1865
Willis W Torrence 1867

While this looks pretty good, there seems to be little to support this.

However, you may find it useful as a way to get more information.
