In Reply to: William Torrance, d. 1800 New York; printed in Pembroke, Plymouth Co, MA news by kay fakhar of 1443

Sure,
This is the Main Torrence family and originates with William's dad and mom: Alexander Torrence (1713-1769) x 1738 Mary Cannon (1719-c1779)

William was the first of 7 children. You had it right that he married Hepsibah Batchelder first and later Susannah Stoddard.
However you erred as on one line you have her born in 1774 and in another you have her married in 1774. The married year is right.
She was born in 1741.

Susannah married William in 1784 and they lived in Pembrocke in Plymouth County, MA.

Alexander is from Generation 5
William is from Generation 6
Jeduthan (1) is from Generation 7 as is John, Polly and Melvin.

Jeduthan's wife Eunice Gibbs was born c 1774 and they lived in Enfield, MA.

John (2) lived in Enfield also

Polly (3) was born in 1780

Melvin (4) was born in 1784 and died c 1816. He married Catherine Severance in 1813 and they lived in Pembroke.

Also from Generation 7 are William, Ellen. Susannah,and Robert.

William married Deborah Barrel in 1813 and then Eleanor Gardner in 1816. That is a reverse of what you listed.

Ellen (1790) married Charles Barker in 1831

Susannah married in 1812 to John Cleveland (1782-1953) and they first lived in Dedham, MA and then moved to NJ about 1813.

Robert married Betsey Kinder (1790-1869)

Robert and Susan were out of order in your list.

That explains William who is realtively well known.
