Descendants of Harmon Armstrong

 

 

 

 

Generation One

 

 

     1.  Harmon1 ARMSTRONG was born in 1765 in Pennsylvania and died at age 84 on 29 June 1849 in Strasburg Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He was buried in All Saints Cemetery (also known as Carpenter Graveyard), Paradise Township, Lancaster County. Circa 1794 he married Mary LINGERFIELD, daughter of Johannes Michael and Rebecca (Smith) Lingerfield. She was born in 1775 in Lancaster County and died  9 March 1853 at age 78 in that county. Mary was buried in All Saints Cemetery.

     Harmon was found on Strasburg Township, Lancaster County tax lists beginning in 1788, the earliest year for which tax records have been found for this township. He was not on Strasburg Township tax rolls the following year and it is not known where he resided for the 10-year period 1789 to 1799 when his name appeared on the tax last for Bart Township in Lancaster County. Harmon continued to be listed in Bart Township through the 1806 tax assessment, and he also was enumerated in that township in the 1800 federal census, confirming his residency. By at least 1808 Harmon was back in Strasburg Township and continued living there until his death. It would appear from tax lists that Harmon never owned land, but rather was an ‘inmate,’ a boarder or renter of land whose personal property was taxable. Harmon, a laborer, never declared more than one head of livestock, a cow, which in 1831 was valued at $10. In that year he paid a tax of 10 cents.

     In addition to the children named below, Harmon and Mary likely had a son Harmon born circa 1807 who settled in Perry County, Pennsylvania. This Harmon’s daughter Elizabeth married the son of his brother John Armstrong (see #9 below). Another son may have been Jacob Armstrong who was on tax lists in Strasburg Township in 1821 and 1822.

     Known children of Harmon1 ARMSTRONG and Mary LINGERFIELD, all born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, were as follows:

                    2       i.    George2 ARMSTRONG was born in 1793 and died in Leacock Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in 1870 at age 76 years and 11 months.. He was buried in Middle Octorara Presbyterian Cemetery, Bart Township, Lancaster County. George married Letitia[--?--] who was born circa 1793 in Pennsylvania. She died 22 October 1850 in Leacock Towsnhip and was buried in Middle Octorara Presbyterian Cemetery.. In the 1850 census for Leacock Township George was head of household with his wife and his sister Catharine in the household. In the 1860 census, George and his sister were enumerated in the same household.

               +   3      ii.    John ARMSTRONG, born 27 July 1796; married Mary HELM/HELLEM.

                    4     iii.    Catharine ARMSTRONG was born circa 1798 and died after 1880 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. She was enumerated in the household of her brother George in Leacock Township, Lancaster County in the 1850 and 1860 federal censuses, and lived alone in that township in the 1870 census. By 1880 she resided in the household of  Susan Armstrong, the widow of her nephew Jacob Armstrong, son of Catharine’s brother John Armstrong.

                    5      iv.    Daniel ARMSTRONG was born circa 1810. He appeared on the census of 1850 in Leacock Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, enumerated with merchant Heathorn Freeland of Ireland and family as a car agent. Daniel was aged 40. (His connection to the family not confirmed.)

               +   6       v.    Samuel ARMSTRONG, born circa 1817; married Rebecca [--?--].

 

Generation Two

 

     3.  John2 ARMSTRONG (Harmon1) was born 27 July 1796 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He died 22 March 1877 in Wayne County, Indiana at age 80, and was buried in Jacksonburg Christian Church Cemetery, Jacksonburg, Wayne County.

     John first appeared on the tax list for Strasburg Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in 1816, joining his father Harman as the only two Armstrong in the township.  His name appeared on the census of 1830 in Sadsbury Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, on the census of 1840 in Strasburg Township, Lancaster County, and on the census of 1850 in Paradise Township, Lancaster County. On 23 March 1860 John and his wife Mary sold their property in Paradise Township to Samuel and John Kurtz for the sum of $800 and moved, along with their younger children and several married members of the family, to Wayne County, Indiana, where their daughter Barbara and her husband Samuel Ross Barefoot had settled shortly after marrying in 1855. John, Mary, daughter Martha and son Elam were in Harrison Township in the 1860 federal census with personal property valued at $500 and no real estate.  John was working as a laborer but later turned to farming and was listed in the 1868 Wayne County Indiana Directory as such, living in Jacksonburg in that county.  By 1870 John was a tollgate keeper in Washington Township, Wayne County.

     In a written statement by Thaddeus Lewis, Justice of the Peace for Shelby County, Indiana, dated 16 April 1913, he states that....'I have the Family Bible of John Armstrong deceased which was published in 1834....'  Lewis examined the bible to certify the birth date of Elam L. Armstrong, and a copy of this letter was in Elam's military file. Unfortunately, it is not known what happened to the family bible once in the possession of Elam.

     On 29 Febraruy 1820 in Trinity Lutheran Church in Lancaster, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania John married Mary HELM who was born 16 January 1801 in Pennsylvania, likely in Lancaster County. She died 16 May 1879 in Wayne County, Indiana, at age 78, and was buried in Jacksonburg Christian Church Cemetery. The identity of her parents is unknown. However, in the 1800 federal census for Pennsylvania, enumerated a year before Mary’s birth, there were three Helm living in Lancaster County, all in Strasburg Township: George, Jacob and John.  By 1810, there was no George, but a Jacob Helms [sic] was in Bart Township, and a John Helms [sic] in Strasburg Township. In 1820 only Jacob Helm in Bart Township remained. It is likely one of these men was Mary’s father.

She was accompanied by Mrs. Wike's sister, Mrs. Samuel Barefoot, of your city." In a 27 March 1890 item in the paper, she was mistakenly referred to as the cousin of Mr. Barefoot (should be Mrs. Barefoot): "The family of Samuel R. Barefoot received a letter yesterday announcing the death at Philadelphia, Pa., of Mrs. Anna Diffendafer, on last Saturday. She was a cousin of Mr. Barefoot, and during a visit here last summer formed many pleasant acquaintances who will be pained to learn of her death."

     15.  Barbara3 ARMSTRONG (John2, Harmon1) was born 28 March 1835 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. She died of influenza at the age of 101 in Cambridge City, Wayne County, Indiana in the Foote Street home of son Earl on 25 February 1937. Barbara was buried 28 February 1937 in Riverside Cemetery, Cambridge City.

     According to her obituary, at the time of her death Barbara was the oldest mother in Wayne County, Indiana, and had been given wide attention since her 90th birthday. A newspaper article on the occasion of her 98th birthday described her as follows:  'Regular living habits help to maintain her excellent health.  She retires at 8 p.m. and arises at 7 o'clock in the morning.  In the afternoon she naps for two hours.  She likes fruits and vegetables and is especially fond of grapefruit.  Her daughter makes custards for her frequently because they are a favorite dessert.  Her eyesight is poor but her hearing is very good.  She listens regularly to Lowell Thomas on the radio and likes to hear the Eddie Cantor program.'

     Barbara married Samuel Ross BAREFOOT 25 November 1855 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He was born 3 March 1830 in that county, the son of Job Palmer and Agness (McCaskey) Barefoot. His brother William McCaskey Barefoot married Barbara’s sister Martha. (see #14 above) According to his death certificate, Samuel died 23 March 1890 in Cambridge City at age 60.  However, his headstone shows his date of death as 25 March 1890, and this was the date recorded in county records.  Newspaper accounts give his age at death as 60 years and 22 days, which, when added to his date of birth, would make 25 March correct.  Samuel died of inflammatory rheumatism. The disease, according to his obituary, was 'most severe in the regions of the heart.' He was buried in Riverside Cemetery.

     Samuel was a wagon maker by trade and in the fall of 1853 went west to East Germantown, Wayne County, Indiana where he bought and shipped horses to Philadelphia. He remained in Indiana about 18 months before returning to Pennsylvania and marrying Barbara. The couple returned to Indiana around 1859, first locating in Dublin, Wayne County.  After a year they moved to Milton in that county where they lived for three years [1861-1864].  The two years following were spent in Pennville [1864-66], followed by three years in East Germantown [1866-69] where Samuel established a carriage factory. He sold his interest in the factory and he, Barbara and their family to Cambridge City in April 1869.  For a time Samuel sold Adams Queen Washing Machines, and then for four years was in the hotel business, running the 'Keystone House' hotel located at the corner of Jones and National Road and later the ‘Commercial Hotel.’ In 1877 Samuel went into the poultry business, establishing Barefoot Poultry and Company.

According to his death certificate he died of consumption (tuberculosis) on 1 December 1890 in Cambridge City, Wayne County, Indiana at age 31, and was buried 4 December 1890 in Riverside Cemetery, Cambridge City. His headstone shows his date of death as 1 December and a notice in the newspaper gives 3 December. John married Mary Ann DOLAN 19 July 1889 in Cambridge City. Mary Ann was born 22 August 1859 in Economy, Wayne County, Her father Martin Dolan emigrated to the United States from Ireland in 1850. Her mother was Bridget Weiss. After John’s death Mary Ann married Peter DODDY 14 January 1903 in Wayne County. She died 8 August 1924 in Wayne County at age 64, and was buried 11 August 1924 in Riverside Cemetery.

                  79     iii.    William Barton BAREFOOT was born 8 January 1862 in Cambridge City, Wayne County, Indiana and died 15 July 1954 in Muncie, Delaware County, Indiana at age 92. He was buried 17 July 1954 in Riverside Cemetery, Cambridge City, Wayne County. William took over the Barefoot Poultry and Egg Company upon his father Samuel's death in 1890.  In 1897 William purchased the poultry business of A. W. Bradbury (Samuel's former partner) and consolidated it with his own company.  The business operated in the Richmond and Cowan, Indiana areas. It was the largest business of its kind when under William's management.  His trade was exclusively wholesale with markets chiefly in Boston, New York City and Philadelphia.  Between four and five thousand chickens and turkeys were crated and sent east each week.  William was a member of the Masons and Knights of Pythias, and for two years served on the Cambridge City Common Council. He was the owner of Single G, a world famous pacer voted by leading horsemen in 1950 as the 'greatest pacer of the first half of the 20th century.'  Single G, foaled in 1910, took part in 434 heats, winning 262 and placing in 418.  He established a number of records, including the first pacer to win a race in which three consecutive heats were all paced in 2:00 or better; the first horse to win a race with three consecutive heats averaging 2:00 or better, and the first horse to pace two heats in 1:59 or better in the same race.  Single G's greatness stemmed from the fact that he not only was very fast, but he was also one of the most durable campaigners in American turf history.  He spent 14 years in active racing, campaigning against the greatest pacers in the world until 1925.  In 1923, when he was 13 years old, he set his record of 1:58 1/2.  He was completely sound when he retired, and lived until he was 30.  Single G died in 1940 at the farm of Float Jolly near Tipton, Tipton County, Indiana, and was buried there.  Float Jolly was the husband of Emma Binkley, William's cousin.  In 1951 Single G's remains were moved to land donated near the entrance of the old Cambridge City fair grounds on State Route 1.  A granite monument marks his gravesite. Long a bachelor, at age 61, or circa 1923, William married Grace M. DRISCHEL in Cambridge City. Grace was born 15 May 1880 in Jackson Township, Wayne County, the daughter of Jacob and Anna (Smith) Drischel. She died 24 February 1950 at age 69. The cause of death was asphyxia by hanging; no autopsy was conducted.  According to her death record, Grace "hanged self in door way" of her home at 313 West Front Street in Cambridge City. Recording of her death was delayed by the coroner from its occurrence in February 1950 until 4 April 1960, no doubt because an investigation was necessary due to the unusual nature of her death.  It was said by family members that Grace committed suicide when police became suspicious that she was slowly poisoning her husband William and came to her house to confront her, but this account has not been confirmed. It is known that William was a resident of a nursing home in Muncie, Indiana at the time of Grace’s death, and that she was nearly blind and had suffered a mild stroke in her home a month before she died. Grace was buried 27 February 1950 in Riverside Cemetery.

Will was born 25 May 1887 in Darke County, Ohio, the son of Samuel H. and Lavina B. (Dentner) Anson who were in Washington Township, Darke County in the 1930 federal census. The family story is that Mabel's husband, Will Anson, left her shortly after World War I and remarried. However, there is some evidence that instead he died, leaving her a widow.  In the 1920 census for Amesbury, Essex County, Massachusetts, enumerated on 9 January 1920, William H. Anson, age 32, born in Ohio, auto inspector in a body shop, and wife Mabel, age 27, born in Indiana, were lodging in a private home in Amesbury. In the 1930 census, Mabel Anson was a roomer in a home in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, age 37, born in Indiana, working as a cashier in a drug store. Her marital status was given as’ widow’. In this day many women adopted the label ‘widow’ because of the stigma attached to ‘divorcee,’ so there may have been a divorce, as per the family story, but some time after World War I. However, since no William or Will Anson with the correct age or birth place was found in the 1930 census index, its likely he was deceased, leaving Mabel a widow. It is known for a fact that in 1934, Mabel moved to Cambridge City, Indiana (from some place not known) to help her elderly grandmother, Barbara Barefoot, and it was here she died 16 May 1964 at age 71. Mabel was buried in Riverside Cemetery, Cambridge City, Wayne County.
