ALFRED T. ARMSTRONG, deceased, who was a farmer and stock-grower, was born in Greene County, Penn., February 1, 1807.  He was a son of William and Elizabeth (Russell) Armstrong.  His mother’s parents were of Scotch-Irish origin.  Alfred was the oldest in a family of seven children; he was reared in this county and attended the subscription schools.  He engaged in farming as a business, and met with more than ordinary success.  He was united in marriage, February 22, 1837, with Miss Helen M., daughter of Jeremiah and Anna (Alexander) Davidson.  Mrs. Armstrong’s father was a native of this county, and her mother of Mercer County, Penn.  There were of English descent.  Mr. and Mrs. Armstrong had a family of ten children, of whom six are living—Russell, Barclay, Elizabeth, wife of Jesse Benner; John, Neri, and Maggie, wife of William Elliott.  Mr. Armstrong was a Democrat, and a devoted Presbyterian, of which church his widow is also a zealous member.  He died in 1878.
