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!

Would you please remove one of the grave photos from John Buford Coker's memorial.

I would like to put up a photo of his and his wife, but there is no room.

Kindest Regards,
Alana Morgan

This person is actually Velma Rose Grady Owens. The dates on her death certificate match those of this one. She is buried in Mt Carmel Cemetery under Velma R Owens. Her husband W. Raymond Owens is also there.

Thank you for your dedication to find-a-grave. You've done an outstanding service for those looking for family members. I did see your photograph for George Witt's grave and his flat surface marker, but I did not see that his wife Mathilda on your site. I am at the cemetery now and I've been searching; however, the cemetery is quite large to find such a small marker I am curious if you can give me some kind of direction where you saw George's and perhaps his wife's marker?

I was wondering if I could use the photo you took in Forest Park Cemetery in my family tree (attributed to you of course). Thanks for the work you've done and thanks in advance!
