I'm actually an Arman family researcher, but I'm researching allied families looking for clues.
Thomas and Charity DOWLIN ARMAN came to St Francois County, MO, in the late 1820s. Their children married into the CRUMP and DOGGETT families. Thomas and Charity are said by some to have been born in Rutherford County, NC. They were married in Surry County, NC, in Jan 1790. Thomas enlisted as a private under Capt. Lapsley of Botetourt County in the Twelfth Virginia Continentals, commanded by Col. Nathaniel Gist. He was in the Battle of Monmouth and may have served at Valley Forge.
I'd like to find the names of their parents. I believe Charity may have had a brother or nephew named John Dowlin.
The children of Thomas and Charity were: Mary Arman 13 Sept Surry, NC- 1861 Somerset, Pulaski, KY m. Charles ASHLEY in KY
Nancy Arman 1794 NC or KY-1865, Bonne Terre, St Francois, MO m. William DOGGETT in MO
Henry Armon 1795, Pulaski, KY--after 8 Mar 1862, MO m. Mary Polly CRUMP
Thomas Arman about 1800, KY--Sep 1844, Livingston Co, IL [I'm not sure the Thomas Arman who died in Illinois is the son of Thomas and Charity. The IL Thomas married Nancy Reynolds, dau. of Philip Reynolds, who was from Bedford Co, VA)
Elizabeth Armon 1802, Pulaski, KY--1845, St Francois, St Francois, MO m. George Washington CRUMP in St Francois, MO
George Washington Crump (who married Elizabeth Arman) and Mary Polly Crump who married Henry Arman) were children of Benjamin Crump and Susannah Doggett, who married in Tennessee in 1803. Benjamin Doggett was born in NC. Susannah was born in Virginia.
William Doggett (who married Nancy Arman) was the son of Isaac Doggett and Margaret Crump Doggett, who married in Greene Co, TN in 1805. Margaret Crump Doggett was Benjamin Crump's sister.
Isaac Doggett and Susannah Doggett Crump were children of Miller Doggett. Benjamin Crump was the son of Edmund Crump and Mary Elizabeth Melvin.
These families were tight! And it makes me wonder whether they knew each other before moving to Missouri.
Has anyone run into any other connections between the Crumps and Doggetts and the Armans or Dowlins?
Thomas Arman may have originally be a DE ARMAND or DEARMAN. I've found lots of Dearmans and Dowlin/Doolings in NC, but I don't know which ones may be related.
