Bio and Links
Bio Photo John James Armstrong was born in Amarillo, Potter County, TX, the son of David Clinton and Anna Marie (Goranson) Armstrong. He was reared on the family farm out from Panhandle, Carson County, TX. John graduated from Panhandle High School and The University of Texas at Austin with a BS degree in Pharmacy. He resided in MD and AL as a pharmacist for the U.S. Public Health Service. He resigned his commission and returned to Greenville, TX, where for a year he pursued a MS degree in computer science becoming a graduate school dropout. He continued his pharmacist career with McGaughey, Revco, Eckerd, and Super 1 Foods & Discount Pharmacy

His genealogy interest was inspired by an aunt, Gladys Mae Armstrong (1900-1991), in the late 1970's. From there the interest has grown more into assisting others in their research where he can rather than doing research on his family. His particular interest is in newspaper indexation as shown in a way with the Website address. The photo is from a few years back... To God be the Glory, Great Things He Has Done!

RE: Mrs
Hi John,
Just wanted to say thanks, and its no problem at all. I sent you a few more, but hopefully that should be the last of them.

So many people don't realize how much clean/dirty data affects the search-ability of the site (and then they get mad at me for sending corrections).

I don't know why the spreadsheet uploads are set up like they are, but I have seen some strange prefix and suffix mistakes in a few older memorials, so I can only guess that they were disabled to prevent more of those from happening. Unfortunately, it creates more work for those that use that method.

Again, thank you for your help and understanding and keep up the good work!

Webb Delores
I suggested a name change for Delores Webb based on the information given me by the office staff at Resthaven. Their records show the M is for Mina.

Hello. Would you be so kind as to transfer the John Floyd Bostick memorial to me? He is my great-great uncle, the son of my great-great-grandfather, Nathaniel Alexander Bostick. Thanks!

John , you have enter information on Robert Kilman, Memorial# 8155663. There is a William Kilman memorial #33146302 in East Mount cemetery in Hunt county Texas. I believe he is Robert's brother. I have William in Cumberland county Ky. until 1870. If this is the same William then he left his wife and children behind. Do you have any thing on him? Ron
