Alexaia,
            Thanks for the information but as far as I am aware not one of mine.
  On the Samuel Torrens name there is a will abstract in PRONI for a Samuel Torrens of Culnaman who died on 20 Dec 1879 proved by the oath of Sarah Torrens, widow.I also have a vague memory of a gravestone in Moneydig Presbyterian Church, erected by Sarah Stewart in memory of her husband Isaac and son Joseph but, strangely, her death was not recorded on it.

Hello, I know this family, did much research on them as they are related. The Thomas Torrens you mention was son of Hugh Torrens, I descend from Hughs brother Samuel Torrens (c1759) of Coolneman.
The Samuel who married Morrison died, his widow Sarah later Married Isaac Stewart of Coolneman and had family.

Its been a while since I worked on genealogy but glad I found this thread.

I hope this helps

Derek.

Hi,
   I am distantly related to Sarah Morrison who married Samuel Torrens. However I am more interested in her second husband, Isaac Stewart as his name and their childrens' names repeat in my family but I cannot connect him. Any information would be appreciated.

Not sure if I've given you details of Isaac Stewart a while ago (and you may have more information than me) but from just a quick look to my file I show a brother Joseph (c1835) and a brother Oliver (c1846) for Isaac Stewart.
Please do NOT ask for lookups by Personal Message.
