My great-grandfather - a handsome, no nonsense, hard-working man who I dearly would have loved to have met. He was named after his grandfather "Lancelot" Armstrong, which somehow morphed into "Lanty Lot."
Lanty was the son of Nathaniel Washington Armstrong & Mahaley Jane Rodgers; the husband of Emma Adeline Graham; and the father of Lillie, Fred Ashley, William David, James Sidney, Zelma Louella, Oscar Seymour, Jack Mason, Hillard Beasley, Elise, and John Carless Armstrong.
