ARMSTRONG, A. TIM: During an exciting encounter on the steamer P. D.
Staggs, at 7 o'clock Saturday night at a point about two miles up the
river from Nashville, between the boat's officers and a crowd of drunken upper river raftsmen, Capt. A. Tim Armstrong was stabbed in the chest, the knife blade penetrating the right lung, from the effects of which he died Sunday morning. McClure Williams, a typical raftsman, is locked up at Nashville, charged with doing the stabbing. This news will be received with regret by the people of the upper Cumberland. Capt. Armstrong was raised at Livingston, Overton county, and was 48 years of age, just in the prime of vigorous manhood. He was admired by all his friends for his bravery and intelligence, and his friends are legion. Capt. Armstrong was a nephew of Burr Cullom, of this place, and first cousin to Joe Cullom, of the PRESS. He leaves a wife and two daughters. [Date 2/7/1895, Vol. VIII, No. 14, Page 5]
