Grave Record, "DeWITT EUGENE TORRANCE; b. 21 Sep 1848 at Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire; d. 27 Jun 1916 at Eureka, Greenwood, Kansas," Greenwood Cemetery; Eureka, Greenwood, KS; Find A Grave Memorial # 38458363; Find A Grave; www.findagrave.com.
This info (and much more on DeWitt, his two wives, and children) was posted at Find A Grave in 2009 by "smurph."Don't know how he/she discovered the birthplace for DeWitt, but it's interesting to see that he was born at Keene, NH (according to smurph).This would mean that THOMAS TORRENCE and LAVINIA M. (QUACKENBUSH?) were in the same town as the renowned school teacher, WILLIAM TORRENCE (son of John Torrence and Chloe Bartlett).I've often wondered why, on several censuses, DeWitt's birthplace is different (i.e. MA; NH; IL; NY).It's as if nobody knew.But smurph found the Keene, NH, birth somehow...it appears to be legit.
