MAKES TRIP FROM BUELAH, N. D.

S. B. Armstrong and Mrs. Cora Abbey Take Long Ride

Mrs. Cora Abbey and S. B. Armstrong of Buelah, N. D., spent Wednesday in the city, visiting at the home of William Weinholt, 516 Strongs avenue. They are on their way from Buelah to Packwaukee, where they will spend the winter. Mr. Armstrong is 96 years of age and has made the 800-mile trip from Buelah without inconvenience. Mr. Armstrong is well and strong considering his great age. Both Mr. Armstrong and Mrs. Abbey were former residents of this county, having lived at Junction City 25 years ago. They are still familiar with the city, having visited here several times recently.

VISITS IN NORTH DAKOTA

Despite Advanced Age of 97, S. B. Armstrong Travels Extensively

Mrs. Cora Abbey and her father, S. B. Armstrong, spent a short time in the city today at the home of J. L. Roy. Mrs. Abbey and Mr. Armstrong are on their way to their home at Packwaukee from Beulah, N. D., where they visited with relatives. Mr. Armstrong is almost 97 years of age, but despite his advanced age, still travels extensively. He is healthy and robust and looks years younger than he really is.

Leigh Larson note: This newspaper account of Cora's trip to North Dakota helps to shed a little more light on the Twilight Abbey mystery child that appears in Wisconsin in the 1920 U. S. Census.


The 1920 U. S. Census taken on January 22, 1920, shows Cora A. Abbey (age 53) born in Wisconsin to Canadian-born parents is a widow living in Packwaukee Twp., Marquette Co., WI. She is listed as the owner and head of household. Living with her is her son, Twilight Abbey (age 9/12) born in North Dakota to Montana and Wisconsin-born parents. Also living there is her father, Samuel B. Armstrong (age 97) born in Canada to English-born parents and having emigrated in 1858 and naturalized in 1860.

In January, 1921, he went with his daughter to visit his son Harrison Armstrong of Superior, WI. They were there until July 5th, at which time they came to Baraboo to visit at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Ellis, at whose home he passed away Sunday morning at half past ten.

Samuel Bolton Armstrong died August 20, 1921, in Baraboo, Sauk Co., WI, at age 99.

Samuel Bolton Amstrong, 1822 - 1921.

I have a little more information about this family. Samuel Bolton Armstrong was born in Edwardsburgh, Ontario, Canada, according to most of his records. He married Mary Favel abt 1844 and some say in Newfoundland, Canada but I can't find any verification. They had two sons, Richard L. and George Washington Armstrong. Then he married Catherine Marie Williams on April 25, 1853 and that marriage was recorded in the Christian Guardian, Toronto, Can. She was the daughter of Henry John Williams. They had a daughter Sarah born abt 1854 and Eleanor born later. Eleanor married Moroni Thomas Faval s/o Edward R. Faval who is the brother of Mary Favel. Then he married Delila M. Jones and they had 4 or 5 children. Then on April 9, 1876 he married Lois Coan Wiser d/o Edmund Coan and Sybil Warren Brown Sybil died in 1864. Ed and Sybil had 8 children. Because of the Mayflower connection, I am very interested in finding the marriage location for Samuel and Mary Favel. Samuel was s/o John Nelson Armstrong and Mary Wood. Mary was d/o John Wood and Rebecca Cain. Rebecca was d/o Isaiah Cain and Leah Adams. Leah was d/o David Adams and Dorcas Paine. Dorcas Paine was d/o Elisha Paine and Rebecca Doan. Elisha Paine was s/o Thomas Paine and Mary Snow. Mary Snow was d/o Nicholas Snow and Constance Hopkins. Constance Hopkins, her siblings and father, Stephen came across on the Mayflower I. Stephen Hopkins also was a member of the earlier attempt in Jamestown VA. I have two weak links in this chain and one is the marriage of Samuel and Mary Favel and the other is the marriage of Leah Adams and Isiaih Cain. Lots of collateral proof but no marriage licenses.

Aug. 15 - As mentioned last week, Reporter readers may get some more interesting tips regarding Mr. George W. Armstrong.

Going away back to the time of the religious strife between Catholics and Protestants in Germany, in the year 1530, a family from thence named William, James and Elizabeth Wood came to New York. William married an English lady, by whom he had a son, John, who became a baker by trade. This John, the baker, also married, and among his sons was one John, who became proprietor. The hotelman reared a family, one of whom was John Wood, who was a U.S. pioneer and later became Captain John Wood in the Continental army in New York.

He married there and had a son and daughter, William and Betsey. She afterwards was Mrs. Ebenezer Moore. In the year 1799?, the Captain was captured by the British at Quebec, put in a dungeon four years and ten days. During his captivity his wife and children came over to Canada, and in 1791 he went in search of them, and finding them settled in Caintown in the township of Younge, county of Leeds, Province of Upper Canada, he never returned to live in the States but became subject to Great Britain, and being of a somewhat jovial turn of mind, often said he would flog a son of his who would refuse to become a British subject.

His children are William, Betsey, Isaiah, David, Mary, Hafey and George. Mary married John N. Armstrong, whose family were Edward, Jerry F., David, Samuel, Ellen, John N., Catherine, George W., Clarissa and James D. Armstrong.

George W. began about 18 years ago to search for evidence in the case of his grandfather, Captain John Wood, regarding Governmental bounty for his services in the. U.S. revolutionary war, and for which he had never received remuneration. He had been very successful in obtaining important evidence, and is hopeful of securing a sum from the funds of Uncle Sam. The military commissioners at Washington, D.C. have acknowledged this much.

We hope success will crown the efforts, G. W. Armstrong.

Jean Sweeney Passes Away

Obituary, Courtesy Sweeney Family

Jean Spencer Sweeney of Alameda died on Nov. 25, 2011. Sweeney was born in 1939 on the Northern Shoshoni Indian Reservation, near Owyhee, Nev. She was the second of five children. Her father, Charles Spencer, was a Bureau of Indian Affairs Reservation Superintendent. She grew up on several Indian reservations including Fort Washakie, Wyo., Fort Yates, N. Dak. and Browning, Mont. She spent many carefree days horseback riding on the reservation. In high school she was known for her energy and outgoing personality. After completing 11th grade, she told her father she was not happy with the education she was getting in the public schools, so went to boarding school at Wasatch Academy in Mount Pleasant, Utah, for her last year of high school. While at University of Idaho in 1959, she met and married Jim Sweeney, a law student, and they honeymooned at the forest service lookout at Lake Coeur d'Alene, Ida. She earned a degree in elementary education in 1961. Jim became a lawyer for the Navy and they lived in Polson, Mont., Queens, NY, Coronado, Calif., Portsmouth, RI, Alameda, Seattle, then finally settled back in Alameda in 1980. She raised two daughters. Sweeney was an elementary school teacher in Portsmouth, substituted in the public schools in Alameda for several years and also worked as a Montessori teacher in Alameda and San Leandro. When the Alameda Naval Air Station was still active she was a Navy Relief Society case worker who assisted Navy families in financial matters. In her later years, she was a member of the Alameda Rotary Club, the Humane Society of Alameda, the Alameda Historical Society, Veterans' Memorial Building Restoration Fund, and the Alameda Point Restoration Advisory Board. She served on the city's Northern Waterfront Fund, helped write portions of the Alameda General Plan, and was on the board of the Alameda Community Fund. She researched, drafted and submitted the application which resulted in the Alameda Veterans' Memorial Building being placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Her tireless work, sound opinions and can-do attitude made her an asset in many civic efforts. She is best known for her work in obtaining the Alameda Belt Line property. Her extensive research revealed that the city could buy back the property from the railroad at its original low price. After seven years in the courts, the Alameda County Superior Court upheld her findings. She also spearheaded an initiative to have the Belt Line property zoning changed to open space. The Alameda City Council issued a proclamation that the open space eventually created from the Alameda Belt Line be named the "Jean Sweeney Open Space Preserve;" Nov 1 was Jean Sweeny Day in the city. Outside of her civic interests, Sweeney had a passion for many activities such as hiking, backpacking, art, symphony, opera, theater, sailing, tennis and genealogy. She took some adventurous trips such as sailing on the Bounty ship for one leg of its reenactment journey across the South Pacific. She also participated in a cattle drive through California and Nevada. Sweeney was a friend to many, quietly helping out others. Whether it was grocery shopping for someone unable to do so or taking a sick person into her home, she was selfless in her compassion for others. Sweeney is survived by her loving husband, Jim; daughters Kathleen Fahley of Renton, Washington, and Christine Ahrens of Los Alamos, New Mexico; grandchildren Michael and Shauna Fahley and Peter, Daniel, Connor and Tyler Ahrens; siblings Betty Keller, Chuck Spencer, Helen Spencer and Tom Spencer; nephews Nick Keller, David Keller and David Spencer and niece Michelle Reichers. Other survivors include sons-in-law Stephen Fahley and James Ahrens and sisters-in-law Linda Spencer and Alice Spencer. A memorial service was held at the Alameda Elks Lodge, 2255 Santa Clara Ave., 2 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 11. The family requested donations could be made in her name to pancreatic cancer research at University of California San Francisco (www.makeagift.ucsf.edu/hospitals) or Heifer International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting world hunger through self-reliance (www.heifer.org). In summary, Sweeney was truly a renaissance woman: teacher, researcher, activist, environmentalist, historian, philanthropist, adventurer, caregiver, mother, wife and friend.

From Rootsweb 2002:

 

you listed 4 towns that I have family from , in Granby my Patrick ,In
Bloomer , my Fessenden , In Fulton my Jones , in Volney my Patrick . I
thought just maybe my Samuel Armstrong is in your family. He married
Delilah Jones in Oswego Co. N. Y. don't have any dates except for her
birth , 8 , 30,1841 .She moved to Baraboo ,Wis and married a Mc Intosh
in 1858 . She had a daughter Mary Armstrong born in Wis. 1863.
Carol
 

strange how so many of the people moved to the same areas. I see that in
my other lines too.
Do you have anything more on this Samuel? He married Delilah Jones. Did
they both move to Wisconsin? Delilah remarried to a McIntosh? And her
daughter born in 1863 was a Armstrong or a McIntosh? I am just a bit
confused.... Sorry
Anna

Anna,
I don't think Samuel Armstrong moved to Wis. Delilah was living by/with
her sister in Wis. Delilah had a daughter named Mary Armstrong who was
born in 1863 in Wis. Wait a minute ! if the daughter has the last name
of Armstrong then he would have had to be in Wis at that time too.
Will look in the courthouse tomorrow for a death cert. for him and
birth cert. for Mary .
Delilah did marry a William Mc Intosh in 1858 , will look for a marriage
cert. for them also.
Any one you want me to look up at the Sauk Co. Wis. court house
records? Its right in town here.
