Levi Armstrong married Miss Ida Dix about July 18, 1889 in Richland County, Wisconsin. Ida was his 2nd wife. Levi and Ida Armstrong were the parents of five children:

2. Clara May Armstrong 18931965
3. Joseph Armstrong 18961957
4. Bryant W. Armstrong 18991970
5. Levi Armstrong - aka Lee Pobjoy 19001965

Levi Armstrong was hit and killed by a train in Janesville on April 16, 1907.

The widowed Ida Armstrong was re-married to Richard F. Murphy by August 22, 1907 - per a Janesville newspaper article of that date, titled "Sad Story That is Told in Court".

Richard Murphy and Clara Murphy are found on the 1910, 1920 and 1930 census records, where Ida is now going by Clara.
A grateful thank you to The Hedburg Public Library, in Janesville, Wisconsin, for finding an obituary for Mrs. R. F. Murphy.
