In Reply to: Re: Torrence Tree info from Belmont,NH by Tom Fetters of 1443

Here is a bit more.

I found Albion with a mother, Rosana.

I found Albion with a B middle initial born in 1861 and in Lynn, Mass. He moved to Eddington, Maine in 1895.

Rufus J Torrence (died 8-26-1890) in Lynn, MASS and he is the first name in Torrence, Vary & Company of Lynn. They deal in flour, grain and hay. This company still going in 1919.

Delia C Torrence, widow in 1890 at 451 Chatham in Lynn. She moves to Swampscott.

Orrin P Torrence, teamster in 1890 Lynn at 28 Bond. He later moves to Swampscott.

Hattie S Torrence, widow of Rufus in 1891 at 451 Chatham.

Melissa Torrence at 24 Stewart in 1898

Bertha F, widow of Fred E Torrence at 427 Chatham in 1919

Fred E Torrence (Bertha F) shoeworker, 427 Chatham

Melissa in 1916 at 24 Stewart

Rose in 1916 at 24 Stewart.

These are from city directories for Lynn.

I searched my records and found very very little on New Hampshire and Maine. I have no connections to these folks, but based on that, I think it likely that they are related. If there were lots of families, then it would be a toss up, but the scarcity indicates a connection. I just haven't the information to help.

Good Luck.
