James M. Armstrong, ... was born of Irish parents in the State of New York. The latter grew to manhood in the State that gave him birth and was married there to Miss Betsy Criswell, a supposed native of that State or Pennsylvania, and daughter of Samuel Criswell, who had beena soldier of the Revolution. After his marriage, Mr. Armstrong settled in Cayuga County, reared his family there, but afterward moved to Steuben County, where he spent the last years of his life.
On the Bennett Farms at Howard NY, on the Stephens Gulch road to Canisteo, there was an old cemetery which they have plowed up. According to the late Rose McKibben of Hornell, a Samuel Criswell, a Rev War Soldier was buried there and his daughter Betsey Armstrong and her husband James. The Bennett farm was owned by the Dolbe family before purchased by the Bennetts.
