The Armstrong clan, including my great-great grandad William Leroy Armstrong (b. Sept 24, 1856-d. 1943) married Sallie Burrah Whatley (b. Jul 26, 1878, d. 1928) and from this was born 7 children. Ennis, the oldest son, married Pauline HARRIS, daughter of W. A. HARRIS, one of the pioneer families of Dickens County. Elza (W.E.) married Zelma KIDD a member of the early settlers of the Dry Lake Community. Estelle married Harold BLAIR, son of Jim BLAIR from Dickens. Lacy married Mildred BRIGHT from Abilene, Texas on December 22, 1943 in Lubbock. She was employed with Farm Security in Spur. They lived in Spur, Petersburg, Olton, Dalhart, and Dumas where Lacy was engaged in farming. Their son Lacy Douglas was born in 1949. Iris married Laurel K. BAKER on November 26, 1932 in Spur. He was from the Foreman Chapel Community which was in the Dry Lake school district. They lived in McAllen, Texas for 18 years, Denver City for 25 years and retired in Lubbock, Texas. She worked in a bank for 30 years and L.K. was in auto parts. R.D. and Jack were both in the army during World War II, met and married girls from the north part of the United States. R.D. married Marion MICHNER from Bay City, Michigan and Jack married Eileen HAYWARD from Oberlin, Kansas. Lee ARMSTRONG died December 1943 and Sallie in April 1946. Both are buried in the Spur Cemetery. The three elder children - Ennis, Elza, and Estelle have passed on and are buried in Resthaven Cemetery, Lubbock, Texas.
William Leroy Armstrong was the son of Richard Dickson Armstrong who was a confederate Pvt. and was captured and died in Alton IL. prison camp.
The problem -If you look up Richard Dickson Armstrong, his obituary only lists David Mastin Armstrong (1848 - 1984) and Sarah Jane Armstrong Robinson (1828 - 1889) as the children. But when you look up his wife Sallie Burrah Whatley, it lists her children as son's were William Leroy Armstrong #25723841 and Thomas Hindman Armstrong #31877627 and a daughter Sarah Jane Armstrong Robinson. So David Mastin is recognized as a son to R.D. Armstrong, while Thomas Hindman is not, and William Leroy Armstrong is not. Can you help me? Do you know any Armstrong's in Washita county? Do any of these nams look familiar to someone you might know?
Thank you !
