James and Mary Ann Armstrong -- Smiths Falls, 1840's
January 31, 2003: Hello. I found your website titled Bytown or Bust. I have a relative that I'm attempting to find information on, so far having no luck though, so I thought I might email you the info I had and see if maybe someone else might have contacted you regarding this person, or perhaps you could add my info to the public website with my address as a contact? =) His name was James Armstrong. He was born in Bytown (I think!). He lived with his wife Mary Ann. They had a son named Albert Armstrong (b. 19 Sep 1842, christened 28 Oct 1842 in Smith's Falls, Lanark, Ontario, Canada). The only other info I have is that he passed away, and his wife remarried on 24 Jan 1856 in Prince Albert, Reach Township, Durham County, Ontario, Canada. "24th Jan. in Prince Albert, James Sired and Mrs. Mary Armstrong, widow of the late James Armstrong of Bytown. (Rev. Thomas Demorest)" - Source Ontario Marriage Notices by Thomas B Wilson If you have any information that might help me, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you very much in advance!
