Re: [Bann Valley] Torrens/Archibald connections

Frankie, Im the freind Linda Gilmore has just mentioned, The Samuel Torrens of Coolneman who married Elizabeth Henderson (nee Gilmore) was my G,Great Grandparents. Their daughter Elizabeth went to Scotland and married her neighbour James Archibald. Have you been in touch with Robert Morrison ?? He is or was on this list, he is descended from James Archibald and Eliza Torrens.

It was only through the Will of Samuel Torrens that I was able to find out he even had a daughter Elizabeth , she was mentioned as Elizabeth Archibald and I had a lot of fun finding her marraige in local Church Records, Eventually I gave up only to be contacted about 2 Months later by Robert Morrison. Thats when he informed me that they were Married in Greenock.

So it looks like you would have been a 2nd cousin to my late Father and my 3rd cousin.

Welcome to the List. If you like I could send you more information, you can contact me at sdtorrens@xxxxxxxxxxxxx.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Best Wishes,

Derek Torrens.
