Additional information from Mary and Kent: His name is Spencer Freeman Armour. The following comes from Goodspeed: Spencer F. Armour, farmer of Shelby County, is a son of Arthur and Susan (Shelton) Armour. The father was a native of Ireland, born about 1800, and came to America, settling in Mecklenburg County, N. C., where he met and married Miss Shelton. Both passed the remainder of their days in that county tilling the soil. Their family consisted of seven children four sons and three daughters. Our subject was the fifth child of this family. He was born in Mecklenburg, N. C., May 28, 1832, and received a very limited education. At the age of twenty-one he went to Mississippi and farmed till 1871, when he came to this county. In 1862 he entered the Confederate service on detached duty, having volunteered five times and each time rejected on account of ill health. He served throughout the entire war, being detailed as deputy sheriff of Rankin County, Miss., which position he held the last nine months of the war. In 1856 he married Sarah Frances Ashley, of Mississippi, and the result of this union was seven children. As a farmer Mr. Armour has been very successful. When he came to Shelby County in 1871 he had nothing; now he owns 162 acres of the best land as the fruits of his own exertions. For fifteen years he has been a resident of this county, and has succeeded in gaining the reputation of a good farmer and an honest, upright citizen. He is a Master Mason, and his wife is a member of the Missionary Baptist Church. He is a Democrat in politics.
