This is a fairly easy family to trace.

It starts with Hugh Torrence (1701-1789) x Sarah Marjorie Cunningham (1716- ) and they had your

Hugh Torrence (1732-1813)x Mary Brown (1738-c1803) of Ireland, Mecklenburg Co, and Lincoln Co, NC (think west of Charlotte)

They had 7 children all in Tyrone Co,NC with some migrating to Bond Co, IL. Hugh was the last of the 7 born in Lincoln Co, NC and later in Gaston Co, NC. Lincoln here is a Revolutionary War hero, not the Illinois man.

Hugh Torrance, Jr (1778-1848) x Margaret "Peggy" Ashe (1782- )

Hugh and Peggy had 11 children. Mattie, the oldest, went to Pope Co, ARK. Robin, Robert Torrence (1804-1888) married in 1830 to Delilah Falls (1813-1879) and lived in Gaston Co, NC. He was the second of the 11.

Robin and Delilah had 9 children. The fourth was
Esther Emeline Torrence (1839-1927) x 1867 Jesse Alexander Faires (1845-1902).

I do not know much of the next generation. Perhaps you can send me information on them to

Esther and Jesse had 7 children. They were
Robert S Faires (1870-1890)
John Bunyan Faires (1873-1874) great name!
Mary Leona Faires (1875-1880)
Jennie x Lewis Kerr
Elizabeth x Marshall Davis

I need the birth year, death year, marriage year, spouse, with Birth and Death year, and a location where they lived.

Hope this helps.

I have all the siblings in these families and you could run a search by contacting descendants of these other related lines.
Good Luck.
