The James Russell Armstrong was the son of James Abner Russell Armstrong and Barbara Barby Alfrey, who married on 11 Oct 1854 in Bath, Kentucky.
This couple had thirteen children. Their second son/child was James Russell Jr Armstrong (b. 16 Nov 1856
Morgan, KY d. 22 May 1939 Bath, KY.) who married Virginia Myers b. Dec 1856 Morgan, KY d. 21 Apr 1937 Bath, KY.
James and Virginia had three children:
(1)Ida b. 1876 White Sulphur, Bath, KY d. sometime after 1880
(2) Neville F. Armstrong b. 13 Jul 1880 White Sulphur, Bath, KY d. 14 Nov 1964 Bath, Kentucky
(3) Edna Clara Armstrong b. 09 May 1889 White Sulphur, Bath, Kentucky d. 17 Sep 1921 Rowan, Kentucky
Neville F. Armstrong married Rachel Ellis (b. 10 Mar 1888 d. 05 mar 1976 all happening in Bath, KY) in 1904. I know Neville is buried in the Jones Cem in Bath, which would be my guess is where Rachel is buried as well. This couple had three children: (a)Grace b. 1905 Farmers, Rowan, KY d. 1920 Licking, Bath, KY (b) Clay Earl b. 1907 Salt Lick, Bath, KY d. 15 may 1977 Kettering, Montgomery, Ohio. (c) and then, (c)there was Edna b. Mar 1889 Salt Lick, Bath, KY and whose death date I still don't know.
Neville's sister, Edna Clara Armstrong, who was born on 09 May 1889, married Albert Harrison Bundy b. 09 May 1888 Allentown, Leigh, Penn'a d. 29 Apr 1920. They had been married on 06 Jul 1909, the place where married I would guess would have been Rowan, Kentucy, because that seemed to have been the place so many marriages took place.
Albert was the 6th child of 9, which belonged to Adelbert Nelson 'Albert' Bundy who had been born on 01 May 1852 Rockton, Union Twp, Clearfield, Penn'a d. 26 Jan 1910 Lunchburg (Fayetteville) Ohio, who was a constant mover building saw mills and creating lumber for those who needed it. Adelbert's family went from Penna to West Virginia, Kentucky to finally Ohio. His wife, Sarah Lincoln Taylor b. 12 Jul 1862 Kersey, Fox Twp, Elk, Penna, d. 09 Oct 1927 Lynchburg, Arkron, Summit, Ohio.
Albert Harrison Bundy was one of my grandfather's younger brothers. My grandfather was the third child/son born: Chester Adelbert Bundy (b. 31 Oct 1883 Horton Twp, Elk, Penna d. 20 Sep 1958 Pueblo, Fremont, Colorado, who was another mover and shaker, often times searching for a job all over the country when our country was opening up new territories. My family ended up in Butte, California, where the railroad had just opened up a railroad. My mother was the last of six children born.
Albert Harrison Bundy married Edna Clara Armstrong on 06 Jul 1909, and eventually both these individuals were taken over and died from T.B. from which both died too early in life. Albert was taken care of by Clara's parents because of the fear that their three children would 'catch' TB, but of course, that isn't what happens. Clara and Albert had four children, one of the three, who I know little about. All that I've been able to find and learn about was their names; Susie who was born long enough to be named. The other female infant was born in 1918 in Salt Lick, Bath, Ky and then there was another whose name was Ruth Olive Bundy b. 30 apr 1915 Rowan, Kentucky but d. on 03 Dec 1915 in New Alfred, Bath, Kentucky.
The only child to survive and thrive to adulthood was Ferdinand Adelbert Bundy b. 02 May 1910 Salt Lick, Bath, KY who died on 27 Dec 1976 Dayton, Montgomery, Ohio. He I found married his cousin, Agnes Margaret Dailey who lived in Ohio. Her parents were Richard Dailey and Grace Sanders..and that's all I know about Agnes's family.
I do however, know that Ferdinand, who everyone called Ferd, and Agnes had five children;
(1) June Denelda Bundy b. 01 Sep 1935 Zilpo, Salt Lick, Bath, KY and presently lives in Dayton, Ohio (as of 1974)
(2) Bobby (Robert) Augusts Bundy b. 16 Jun 1939 Salt Lick, Bath, KY d. 25 Nov 2006 Medway, Clark, Ohio
(3)Richard Albert Bundy b. 10 Nov 1940 Salt Lick, Bath, KY lives in Dayton, Ohio (as of 1974)
(4) Grace Loretta Bundy b. 22 Oct 1945 Dayton, Montgomery, Ohio and that's all I know about her. (last reseached in 1974)
(5)Ralph Nelson Bundy Dailey (who took his mother's maiden name, and don't ask me why because I don't know why) b. 26 Nov 1929 Mercer, Ohio d. 02 Dec 1980 Van Wert, Van Wert, Ohio.
