    Notes 
    • Not in 1850 census with parents at age 9, and no marriage record for her in Pocahontas Co where most of her siblings were married. Probably died before 1850.

      Bicentennial Hist. of Bath Co. (family of Jacob Armstrong) says she married William Harrison Armstrong, but I think this is wrong -- W.H. married Rachel M.E. Wandless, dau. of David Nelson Wandless, in Bath Co. See her entry for details of how birthdates match.
