Jim,

It's great to hear from you and I'd be glad to trade information about the Armstrongs and Harrisons.

The David Armstrong family came from Pomeroy parish, Co. Tyrone, Ireland. Do you know where in Ireland the Harrison sisters came from?

We found some of our Armstrongs in the Drouin Collection of Quebec Vital & Church Records:

Russelltown (Methodist Church & Presbyterian Church) - 1845

David Wallis son of Edward Armstrong of the state of New York, Farmer, and of Margaret his wife was born the Twenty Seventh day of August in the year of Our Lord one thousand eight hundred and forty four and was baptised this the eleventh day of January one thousand eight hundred and forty six in presence of the subscribing witnesses, by me,

M. McDonald, minister.
Witnesses: Benjn. Douglas, Alexr. Young.
