Charles Davis Armstrong, a well known farmer, died Wednesday, May 30, at his home two miles south of McMinnville.

He was born in Ionia, Mich., May 31, 1860. With his parents, Davis and Mary Armstrong, he took an active part in the westward march of the pioneers. When he was of an early age, they moved to Grand Rapids, Mich., thence to Des Moines, Iowa, and in 1873 to Blyville, Nebr., where they experienced the many hardships of the prairie frontier.

In 1887 he was united in marriage to Hattie Bly at Blyville, Nebraska. This union of over 40 years' duration has been one of unusual harmony and was blessed with four sons, two of whom, Manton Davis of Pullman, Wash., and Vernon Bly of Kalama, Wash., are living. Charles Irvie and Harry Gilbert have preceded him to the eternal home. A sister, Mrs. F.F. Irvine, resides in Petaluma, Calif.

In 1902 he brought his family to Johnson, Wash., and in 1909 to McMinnville, Ore., where he resided until his death.

His Lord and Savior was first acknowledged at about 22 years of age in a series of revival meetings which resulted in the formation of the Congregational church of Blyville, Nebr. Upon his removal to Washington he joined the Presbyterian church. The work of the church was always of deep concern to him. While a member of the Congregational church he served continuously as clerk and as an elder after transferring his membership to the Presbyterian church.

Mr. Armstrong received his education in the public schools, and has always taken a keen interest in the educational facilities of the communities in which he lived.

He was always a strong supporter of good government and constructive ideals, for which he made many sacrifices. At various times he filled county, township and school offices with exceptional administrative ability.

He was a member of the Patron's of Husbandry, grange No. 81, and the McMinnville Lodge of Modern Woodmen of America.

He was continuously engaged in Agriculture until his failing health compelled his retirement from active work.

A little over a year ago he was stricken with a mild attack of paralysis. In the months following several more serious ones occurred. A final attack of a weeks' duration terminate his life last Wednesday.
