Arthur 1870 - 1951[Va]

William J. 1880 - 1963 [Oregon] Leonard and Emma are found in Seattle directory's until Leonard's death in 1915. Emma moved in with her youngest son's family in Oakland, Calif., where he worked at a utility company as I remember. Will work in future to locate cemetery marker of Emily [Emma]Frances Barton Armstrong. She died on March 12, 1930 in Oakland [Alameda Co.]
***found her in 1920 census with both of her younger sons, Will & Family & Roy.
William's wife Alma [Pugh] d in 1954 ,but can't locate a findagrave match. Will's body was taken back to Oakland according to brief Oregon mentioning.
Looks as though Arthur's Aunt ''Pink'' [Annie] Annabell B. Barton Estes [1859] - Feb 10, 1947 also in Alameda Co. Calif., but none of them seem to be listed with findagrave as of yet. His mother's obituary notes, ''daughter of Julius V. Barton and Mary Randall well known by the Butler [Ky.] old timers''.
