Do you have any idea if they might have been related to Eric Torkelson, who was the starting tailback on the football team for a couple of seasons in the early 70's, and later played several seasons for the Packers. Eric was my lab partner in Geology 101, or, as it was always affectionately known, "Rocks for Jocks."
Pretty sure not. Eric T attended Burnt Hills HS near Saratoga NY. Remember Prof. Torkelson at UConn. I live in Schenectady which is only 10 miles from Burnt Hills and never heard of any connection.
