Meaning/Pronunciation: Pronunciation: Tor-res-sen Meaning: Child of Torre (A form of Thor, I believe)

Origin: Norwegian

Variations: In this case, Torresdatter, but as the name is a form of Thor, there are many many variations of the surname as well, from slight to major. Thorsen, Thorirsen, etc.

Relation to me: This is my mother's father's father's mother's father's mother's mother's maiden name.

i: Torresdatter, Marit, abt 1739 – 1801, Trondheim, Norway; Jon Olsen Tiller, 4 daughters, 2 sons

Looking for:
I'd love to know Marit's parents, but along with the others at this level, I'm okay with putting this branch of the family a little longer.

About this blog

This blog is maintained by two sisters who have had a life long interest in geneology.
Mika writes here mostly about our family (Hansen, Hillinger, Bordewick, Park, etc), and her search for more information.
Shannon mostly uses this space as a place to make the many stories written about and by her husband's family (Holly, Walker, Walpole, etc) available to the rest of the family, present and future.

Our blog is named Oh Spusch! mostly because Shannon is bad at naming things. The first post I put up includes a story about the time Walker's great grandfather took his whole family out to see a play and the littlest kept saying "Oh! Spusch!" No one ever figured out what she meant by that.
