I have been searching for years for the parents and siblings of: WILLIAM F. ARMSTRONG, B. 1817 in Hamilton County, Ohio.
This is NOT the William F. who descends from Leonard Armstrong.
In 1830 my W.F. Armstrong was living in Clermont County, town of Batavia, next door to A. P. Thompson.In 1840 he married Roxanna Thompson, daughter of Alexander Philbrook Thompson, in Clermont.
William F, his wife Roxy, and sons David, William Alexander, Nelson and Thompson all served in the Civil War. Thompson died from Gunshot wound,May 5th, 1862 and is buried in Soldiers cemetery in Cinncinnati, ohio.
1850- W. F. (as he was often called) lived in Sterling,Brown, Ohio 1860 - Post office -De La Palma, Sterling Brown, Ohio 1870 - Anderson, Hamilton, Ohio 1880 - Saling, Audrain, Missouri William F. died March 28, 1882 in Audrain County, Mo.
What do you think? Hoping to hear from you, Virginia Raef, GG Granddaughter of William F. Armstrong. (using Betty Claxton-Coryell's email address.)
