HI EVERYONE,

I JUST RECENTLY FOUND MY IMMIGRANT ANCESTORS, AFTER A NEARLY FIVE YEAR SEARCH FOR THEM.

THEY WERE---

WILLIAM TORRANCE, BORN AND RAISED IN IRELAND. HE AND HIS FAMILY LIVED IN DAVIESS COUNTY AND OTHER PLACES IN KENTUCKY.


MARY ADAMS, BORN AND RAISED IN SCOTLAND.

THE ABOVE PEOPLE WERE MY GREAT GREAT GREAT GRANDPARENTS.

THEY MIGRATED TO AMERICA WITH A SON (THERE MAY HAVE BEEN MORE CHILDREN) WILLIAM TORRANCE JR. THE FAMILY LIVED IN DAVIESS COUNTY AND OTHER PLACES IN KENTUCKY.

I HAVE NO OTHER INFO ON WILLIAM JR. AND MARGARET.

WILLIAM JR. MET AND MARRIED A LADY BY THE NAME OF ELIZABETH WOMAL, WHO WAS BORN IN DAVIESS COUNTY. I HAVE NO OTHER INFO ON ELIZABETH, EXCEPT THAT SHE DIED YOUNG.

THEY WERE MY GREAT GREAT GRANDPARENTS.

WILLIAM JR. AND ELIZABETH HAD FOUR CHILDREN, ALL BORN IN DAVIESS COUNTY. THEY WERE--

MISSOURI ANN, BORN IN 1839. SHE LATER MARRIED ZEBA TOOMS, AND I BELIEVE THAT THEY LIVED IN HENDERSON COUNTY.

MARY ELIZABETH, BORN IN 1842.

WILLIAM L. BORN IN 1844

JAMES HIRAM, BORN IN 1846

IN 1848, THREE YEARS AFTER THE DEATH OF HIS WIFE ELIZABETH, HE MARRIED ANOTHER ELIZABETH. i KNOW NOTHING ELSE ABOUT HER.

JAMES HIRAM MARRIED LOUISA ISABELLA (LOU BELLE) HODGKINS FROM DAVIESS COUNTY. THEY WERE MY GREAT GRANDPARENTS, AND THEY HAD FOUR CHILDREN---

JOSEPH ALVIN, BORN IN 1875, AND MARRIED MAGGIE FARRIS. THEY WERE MY GRANDPARENTS.

WILLIAM VINCENT, BORN IN 1880, AND MARRIED LAURA ATCHELY (I DON'T KNOW IF THIS SPELLING IS CORRECT OR NOT.

FLORA, BORN IN 1882, MARRIED MARTIN STALLINGS

MARY ANN (NORA) MARRIED A MR. ETHERIDGE.

IF YOU KNOW THIS FAMILY, I WOULD APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH IF YOU WOULD SHARE YOUR INFO WITH ME.


GOD BLESS, DORIS TORRANCE COLEMAN
