Classification: Query
1901/1911 Census: www.census.nationalarchives.ie

1911:
17 Rathdoony More (Ballymote) Sligo

William H. Armstrong, single, farmer 56, RC

Any Francis is too young in the 1911, and too old in the 1901.
Women usually just disappear on marriage, you can look at the website www.familysearch.org for Eliza and Margaret & Ann's marriages if you think they stayed in Ireland but husband's names are not given all the time.

There aren't many McCleary's in Sligo at this time 1856.

Robert McCleary Parish of Castleconer and a George of the same parish, Poor Law Union of Ballina.

Since Richard and Margaret did not marry till 1868 these could be grandparents rather than parents of Margaret.

26 Armstrongs in Achonry Parish, in the Griffith Valuation of 1856. There are Richard's Francis, Robert and William's so they definitely followed family name. Achonry is in the Poor Law Union of Tobercurry.

Currently there are only 17 Armstrongs in the telephone book for Sligo and only 1 for Tobercurry. 16 McCleary's but none in Sligo but counties close by. You could try writing a few letters.
