Birth: 1818
Ashe County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Jun. 12, 1868
North Carolina, USA

Armstrong born on Prathers Creek in Ashe County North Carolina (now Alleghany). His parents settled there in 1801 on land grant 522. According to Eastern Cherokee Applications submitted to Guion Miller, special commissioner US Court of claims, by 31 Aug 1907, the grandchildren were to be given a share of the more than one million dollars to compensate all Cherokee descent. Family history has it that Lydia was a daughter of a full blooded Cherokee but this is a fact that has not been able to be proven. As a matter of fact it is not likely that she or her Father were full blooded. Armstrong and Catharine moved ca. 1840 to Weasel, North Carolina where he bought a farm on what is now road 1358. In 1847 he received a N.C. land grant #4449 for 100 acres on this road adjacent his own land, the Roops and the Virginia Line, and in Jul 1852 land grant #3305 adjoining his land and Calvin Perkins and Edward Blevins, Armstrong was a Baptist minister, a history in in J.F. Flecther's HISTORY OF ASHE CO. CHURCHES, photocopy of article #97 and #86 in file.
