Robert Armstrong's grandfather, John "Jack" Armstrong(1803-1857) is famous for his wrestling match with Abraham Lincoln. Mr. Lincoln and Jack Armstrong were lifelong friends thereafter.

Robert Armstrong's father William "Duff" Armstrong(1833-1899) was the defendant in the famous "Almanac Trial". Abraham Lincoln defended "Duff" and won his freedom for no fee due to his friendship with the Armstrong family.

Robert Armstrong's great uncle, Judge Bowling Greene(1786-1742) and wife, Nancy Potter Green(1793-1867) were the good friends of Abraham Lincoln who took him into their home when he was despondent over the death of his first love, Ann Rutledge(1813-1835).
