Family Notes

From: Shirley (Bishop) Keller  Date: February 24, 2001
... Billie Sue is getting her thoughts together and then she is going to
call me.  The photo came from her cousin, Margaret Jane, and she doesn't
know if Margaret knows anymore information about the picture. Billie Sue's
grandparents were Shelton and Margaret Armstrong and Anna [Bishop] was his
sister. ARMSTRONG.-- The parents of Thomas Armstrong died when he was quite young, and he was "bound out" to a man in Philadelphia, to learn the boot and shoe trade. When he was grown he married JANE DALTON, and settled in Dixon Co., TN. His children were William, John, James, Thomas, Charles, Abner, Lucy, Sophia and Jane. William married LUCY BAXTER, and settled in Callaway Co., in 1837. He had John, Limis, Jane, Nancy, Richmond, Thomas, Felix, and William, Jr.
