- Mrs. John S. Armstrong, of Sheridan, died yesterday from heart trouble at the age of 86 years. Her father and family came to this country in January, 1830, and in 1834, she was married to Mr. Armstrong, who is now left to mourn, after a happy married life of 62 years. Eleven children were born to them, of who three survive. “Aunt Margaret” was well known throughout the county, and was highly esteemed by all.
