Source: Notes of Olive Kaune; with input by Mary (HARRELL) Enos

Charles was stricken with White Swelling as a child as a result one leg was shorter, and he walked with a limp, he followed the trade of Plastering and Carpenter with his father John Henry Armstrong, when he was plastering the High School Building at Pinckneyville Illinois, he fell and hit the back of his head on the stairway. Charles left five young children when he died, I dont know the whole story, but I believe their Mother tried to raise the children, and she did her best, but then they went to live with others. I do know his son, Louis William Armstrong, came to live with Charles and Olive Kaunes, he was always known as Uncle Louis to me, he went to Church and School in Donnellson, Montgomery County Illinois, he was like a brother to the Kaune Girls, that would be Irene (Kaune) Harrell and Selma M. (Kaune) Canepa.
