In 1750 Aaron Torrence married Susannah Finley, daughter of Michael Finley of Sadsbury township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.

On September 28, 1734, he and his family landed in Philadelphia, first settling on Neshaminy Creek, Bucks County, and later locating in Sadsbury township.

Aaron Torrence and his wife Susannah made their home in that part of York which later became Franklin County, where their four sons were born. In or about 1768 they were living in the Redstone Settlement in Fayette County.
