Wondering if anyone knows anything about the William Torrance, who died in 1800 NY?

His death was mentioned in the 1800 Pembroke, Plymouth Co, MA newspaper.

My Torrance line was from Plymouth Co, MA during this time period.

William TORRANCE married Hepsibah BATCHELOR/Batcheller in 1774 Brookfield, Worcester, MA.

Not certain if this is the same William TORRANCE who married Susannah STODDARD (poss. nee Hardin?)in 1787 Bridgewater, Plymouth, MA.

Hepsibah BATCHELOR/Batcheller was born 07/25/1774 (or 1771) Wenham, Plymouth, MA (daughter of Benjamin and Hannah.)
