Tombstone Tuesday - Armstrong

Sarah Armstrong
died 1877

born about 1800
died 30 April 1877
In a quick search, I couldn't find much more about Sarah than is on her headstone. In 1870, she was living in Hamilton, Caldwell County, Missouri, with John and Mary Simpson. It is recorded she was born in Ireland, as was Mary. Mary's eldest children were born in Canada, and a later census shows that she and her husband immigrated from Canada in 1867. Mary's death certificate indicates that her father's name was Edward and her mother's maiden name was Graham. The informant was the doctor, so the reliability of the information is definitely in question. Sarah is buried in the Rohrbaugh Cemetery in Hamilton.

  1. This is my great, great grandmother. I am doing some research and came upon this blog. I am trying to locate information on them in Ireland. It's getting very frustrating. If you want to contact me, my name is Rhonda Forsberg and my email is newimprovedrhonda@yahoo.com
