About James A. Armstrong
http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/mojeffer/2002-11/1037118736 DIED - Of consumption, James ARMSTRONG, at the residence of his father in Jefferson county, Mo., April 17, 1867, at 2 o'clock p.m. His death is lamented by a wide circle of relations and friends, who sympathize with the aged parents, brothers and sisters of the deceased, in this their dark hour of sorrow and bereavement. We hope that the departed spirit now rests with him who gave it life upon the earth. May God comfort and bless the loss of one who was their idol in the family circle; and may his family be aroused to a sense of duty towards their God and strive to meet the departed in heaven, where they can again renew their earthly love, and where is no more sickness and ravaging diseases to sever their ties of love and friendship. Tom.
