I have requested a copy of the WILL of Thomas Armstrong
which is supposed to be in Jasper Co., TX:
WILL BOOK C, p 134
Per DAR # 729913:
b 4 Jun 1782 Duplin Co., NC
d 12 Sep 1858 Jasper Co., TX
m 3 Jun 1800 Duplin Co., NC
d 12 Jan 1828 Conecuh Co., AL
My ultimate goal is to accurately identify ALL the children of Thomas Armstrong and his wife Rachel Cooper.
Thomas remarried twice more in Wilcox Co., AL to previously married women:
m2) 12 Apr 1829 "Mrs. Elizabeth 'Flitcher'/Fletcher"
m3) 3 Nov 1840 "Mrs. Martha Barnett"
1850 US Federal Census - Marion, Ouachita, Arkansas
Name: Thomas Armstrong
Birth Year: abt 1787
Birthplace: North Carolina
Family Number: 13
Household Members: Name Age
Thomas Armstrong 63
Martha Armstrong 57
I see Ancestry.com trees with children listed and their EXACT birth dates are provided !! [=WOW!], but NO SOURCES are given. The tree owners have not replied to my messages asking about a SOURCE for the data - [Perhaps they are no longer Ancestry.com subscribers(?)] It surely does seem there is a Bible record(?) I hope Thomas' WILL might provide the children's names at the least.
