ARMSTRONG, Jane Eliza – nee BROWN
"ANOTHER OF THE PIONEERS GONE
Mrs. David F. Armstrong, a resident of Dixon County for fifty seven years, passed
away at her home west of town, Sunday, April 30th, at the age of 82 years and 8
days. Born, Jane Eliza Brown, in Jackson County, Iowa, April 22, 1851, she grew to
young womanhood there. On Dec. 26, 1871 she was married to Mr. Armstrong. Five
years later in 1876 Mr. and Mrs. Armstrong came to Dixon County, Nebraska and
established their home. Here she raised her family and at the same time took an
active part, with her husband, in the development of their community. She was a
true pioneer and with that pioneer spirit she endured the hardships of the early
settlers and built for the future.
She was the mother of twelve children, four of whom have preceded her in death.
Her husband too had passed away thirty-one years before.
Left to mourn her loss are six sons, Stewart M., Charles, George, John, Floyd and
Albert, and two daughters, Elizabeth and Mabel; twenty-seven grandchildren and five
Great grandchildren and a host of friends.
Funeral services were held Tuesday. Rev. Kuhler was in charge and was assisted by
Rev. Kemper, a long time family friend. Burial was in the Ponca cemetery under the
direction of Mohrs. Six grandsons bore her to her last resting place and the
entire community mourns her passing."
