There are inconsistent birth and death dates in mortuary and cemetery records in Boulder, CO. These also conflict with the dates on the headstone itself as well as with records from Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Research supports the following: John Ernest Armstrong was born in August 1886 in Butler, PA. He died 21 Apr 1904 in Sistersville, WV, and was originally buried there on 25 Apr 1904. After John's mother died and was buried in Boulder, CO, his father had his (John's) body removed from the cemetery in Sistersville, WV, and shipped to Boulder, CO, where John was reburied on 17 Oct 1918 next to his mother in Green Mountain Cemetery, Boulder, CO.
