Excellent job, Mary.

The William Martin Torrance is child 2 of 6 of Styles Clay Torrance (1844- ) x 1871 Myra Smith (1845-1902).

William's older brother, Styles Albert Torrance, (1872- ) is listed with Mariam Ribble and with Flora Chapman as spouses.
William is listed with Maryan who seems to be the Mariam and this seems to be wife 1. Then Louisa Mitchell as wife #2.

The list of locations where he lived was very helpful. I think Chatham is a county in Goergia and likely to be the Savannah area. I see he was buried in Savannah.

The three kids check out and Yonkers, NY (north of NYC) and East Orange, NJ are logical.



The other family is related, but back a bit.

Styles Albert and William Martin Torrance are generation 6.
Their dad, Stiles Clay Torrance (1844- ) is generation 5. HIS dad is Styles Augustus Torrance (1808-1872) in Generation 4.

Styles A is child 3 of 8 and the oldest child is Robert Hibbard Torrance (1803-1849) married to Matilda and latrer to Adeline. Robert H Torrance had 8 children and the #5 is Styles Crumb Torrance (1836-1912) x Mary McGaul (1839-1922) and this fellow is in Generation 5.

Styles Crumb and Styles Caly are first cousins.

I just mailed a 36 page genealogy guide to all these Torrance people to Willima Symington.


Great Job. I picked up a lot of good pointers from yoru work.
