I am researching the Armstrong & King families of early Selma, LA.

My grandfather’s 2nd wife was Anna Armstrong, whose father was James Matthew Armstrong. Arthur Edward ‘Red’ King was my grandfather.

Vallie Dendy Armstrong was married (2nd) to my cousin, Eartie King of Selma.

Vallie is buried in Georgetown Cemetery, along with both husbands, Earl Armstrong and Eartie King and daughter, Millie Armstrong Parnell.

Mellie “Big” Armstrong was known as "Big". She was twin sister of Millie, known as "Tee-Wee".
Mellie lived on Hwy 165, a few miles South of Selma.
Birth: Sep. 19, 1932 Death: Apr. 29, 2007, Alexandria Rapides Parish Louisiana, USA
Mrs. Henderson was a homemaker and a resident of Dry Prong.
