Joseph was the eldest son of a pioneer Posey County, Indiana family William W. and Emily (Jones) Cash and was born on February 22, 1847 in Bethel Township, Posey County. He had six brothers and sisters: Louisa, Silas K. (died early), Margaret, John Charles, Sarah Ellen and William Traynor. By 1860 the family had moved to Black Township, Posey County where his father had established a new farm. Living at home were his father and mother, and siblings Louisa, Ellen, Margaret and John Charles. The 1870 census of that year records that the family was still living on the Black Township farm and at home included his father, mother and a new member of the family: William T., who was three years of age. Joseph was reported as "farming" but at home. On November 20, 1873 he married Rebecca A. Robbins in Posey County. The young couple had two children: William and John. In 1880 his wife Rebecca died and the U S Census of that year records that Joseph was thirty-three, a widower and had established a farm in Marrs Township, Posey County which is located just northeast of the town of Mount Vernon. Living at his home were his son William (5), son John (3), his brother William (16) and his sister Louisa (Cash) Thomas (38). In February 18, 1900 at Mount Vernon, he married Elizabeth "Lizzie" (Jones) Smith. Lizzie was the daughter of Henry J. Jones, who was a younger brother to Emily Jones Cash. Joseph and Lizzie were first cousins. Later that same year the family moved to Grangeville, Idaho County, Idaho where he established a farm nearby. The couple had one son: Joseph Elmer (he went by his middle name Elmer). On November 23, 1905 Jospeh Armstrong passed away at Grangeville and was laid to rest in the Prairie View Cemetery located there.
