your query comes at an interesting moment; with a few others mainly
historians in NI, and a few folk in New England, I am working on finding
ways to commemorate the emigration in 1718 from Aghadowey to New England,
esp New Hampshire. The Dorrance family is of interest and I believe can be
traced back to NI. As can of course Robert Torrance who is probably my many
time great uncle. (though the family connection is not proven, he seems to
have come from the same townland in which my grandfather was born and where
my cousins still live).
I will get in touch again as soon as I can gather some material; I have a
deadline at work, and Christmas planning, so may not get back to you
immediately, but I hope we can work on this later
