Armstrongs of West Wawanosh

Classification: Query
Surnames: Armstrong, Hare, Nixon, Alexander, Thompson, Leishman, Smith
I have discovered I am related to the Armstrongs of West Wawanosh who emigrated from County Antrim, Northern Ireland in the 1860s, I still live there. William Armstrong and his wife Ellen Hare arrived with their children William George (born 1859) and Elizabeth (1862) both of whom were born in Ireland.
William George Armstrong (1859-1947) married Sarah Jane Alexander (1860-1901) and had three children Victor Earl, Mark Alexander (married Matilda Thompson) and William Thomas.
Elizabeth Armstrong married William Nixon and had 5 children: Eliza Ellen (1883), Annie (1885), Edmund (1889), Alexander (1891) and Telford Russell (1900).
Once in Huron County, William & Ellen had three more children:
John (1867) married Elizabeth Leishman
Eleanor (1871)
Mary (1877) married William Smith.

This is all I have been able to discover on the internet and I am looking to find out more about this family and their descendants.

Also, on Ancestry I discovered a list of deaths registered by doctors which listed William Armstrong's death on 29 November 1900. Is this all that was recorded at the time or where proper individual death certificates completed at the time as well by members of the family?

All help very much appreciated! Thanks!
