After reading Ellen's message of perserverance, I am posting my information
again, with the hopes of trying to knock down this brick wall. My
Great-Great Grandfather was Robert ARMSTRONG b. abt. 1817, he married
Letitia WRIGHT b. abt. 1832. Robert emigrated to Canada around 1884, with
son William and daughters Hettie and Rebecca. There may have been more
children as the earliest census I find them on is 1891 in Sophiasburgh twp.,
ON. According to a search at Fermanagh friends, there are births/baptisms
for 4 children: Robert, He???(I believe it to be Hettie), Rebecca and Emily.
All the records say the children are of Rossford or Baillindolough.
I am tying to ascertain Robert or Letitia's parentage, the only record I
have found that may be my Robert is this from the 1820 Aughalurcher Census:
Robert Armstrong 38 Stone mason Doedrany
Rebecca Armstrong 37 wife Flax spinner
Margret Armstrong 13 daughter
Florence Armstrong 10 daughter
Catherine Armstrong 8 daughter
Rebecca Armstrong 6 daughter
Robert Armstrong <1 son
Not only is the Robert near the correct age, but the fact that the Mother is
named Rebecca would help explain the fact that that name is repeated
frequently in later generations.
Just hoping someone recognizes something from this and can help me out.
