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!

Brigham cemetery Lewis Allen Roberts

I had a family member contact me about Mr. Roberts and I did a bit of research. Thanks to the death certificate you posted I found his parents.

Here are Mr Roberts parents in Alabama:

Mr Armstrong, in doing research I have noted that you have done a great deal of work creating memorials for Mary Martha "Mollie" Hooker McBride (#13784343) and most of her children. Her husband was John Sherwood McBride Jr. I am descended from his brother William Perry McBride. I know that John Sherwood and Mollie lived in Hunt County, Texas and then Clovis, New Mexico. At that point they were divorced, Mollie returning to East Texas and John Sherwood moving on to California where he died in 1942 in Los Angeles.

I was wondering what if anything do you know about John Sherwood McBride Jr? I cannot determine a reason for a move to New Mexico, for a divorce or why he went to California. I have also been unsuccessful in finding his grave. Any help you might be able to give would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

Tony Bell

Martha White transfer
Thanks so much, John. She was clearly a special person, and I am happy to have her.

Do you ever get up to Pampa? I've got a couple of requests in for photos, that are going ignored.

I appreciate your time and dedication to F-A-G.

Best Wishes,

Mr. Armstrong,
Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for locating my great great grandfathers burial site. I have looked for at least 10 years for this information. I have found Jacob's son, Jacob Benjamin, in the same cemetery but I missed this one. I cannot tell you what this means to me and my family.
Thank you again for all your hard work.

Thank you for the correction. I have added everything from the previous memorial as an edit to your corrected version.

Mrs. Claytor was my g-grandmother's sister. Would you be willing to transfer the memorial to me?

Thank You Again! Accuracy is important.
