"Thomas Armstrong, Male, White, Married, born Virginia abt 1798, aged 82, died Jan 1880 of Erysipelas in Revilee, Logan, Arkansas. District 95, Pg 1, Line 11, Roll MORT 6"

Although no marker has been located, family members agree Thomas is laid to rest near his wife Matilda.

Thomas is my daughters' 3rd paternal Gr-Grandfather.

So many thanks to Patsy G and R Armstrong for their contributions and help with this ancestor.
