     Alexander Armstrong Sr. was born before 1740;      There is a 1751 land transaction appears to relate to this Alexander. If he was atleast 21 at that time he was born in or before 1720.
     The estimate that Alexander was born before 1740 is based on the fact that in his brother Robert's 1783 will, Alexander's "eldest" (Mary) and "second" (Sarah) daughters are named and are not referred to as minors (as some others in the will are). Assuming that:
-- The youngest of the two daughters was therefore at least 21 in 1783;
-- Mary, the older daughter, was at least 2 years older than Sarah, meaning that Mary was born in or before 1760;
-- Mary was at least Alexander's second child (there was an older brother James); and
-- Alexander was 20 years old or older when James was born; then
Alexander ARMSTRONG would have been born in or before 1740. - G Vaut 22 Dec 2104.5 He married Elizabeth E. (?) before 1753; Based on birth of daughters Mary and Sarah.6

Alexander Armstrong Sr. was a witness to the This Ancestry tree shows this James as the father of Alexander 77101, but I have no proof of that so have created a "theoretical" Alexander 77102 as a place holder. with James Armstrong.7

Alexander Armstrong Sr. and Alexander Armstrong Jr. I have recently become convinced that the migrant to New York was a son of this Alexander pater familias, also named Alexander fils, who appeared in the 1790 census and then migrated to New York with his brothers James and George. This change was brought about by two facts:
1.     George ARMSTRONG's 1832 application for a Revolutionary War pension is supported by an affidavit by an Alexander Armstrong who affirms that he is the brother of this George.
2.     The households of the Alexander in the 1790 Mifflin Co. census and in the 1800 Seneca Town, Ontario Co., New York census appear me to be too small and too young to match the Alexander who was father of Sarah, James, Mary, George and Robert, as well as of a sixth child, Alexander fils.
3.     There are two Alexander Armstrongs reported in the 1785 County Transcript for Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania: one a landowner and a second "Freeman".

(now Juniata Co.), Pennsylvania, USA, This is a deed dated 22 Aug 1795 (but recorded 26 Apr 1808) by Alexander Armstrong Junior and his wife Mary selling a tract of 258 acres in Fermanagh for 100 pounds to William Thomson. It states that Alexander Armstrong Senior now lives on this land and that it borders lands of Epenetus Hart and Hugh McAllister and was apparently originally surveyed by Alex Senior and then transfered to Alex Junior sometime around 27 April 1767 when Junior had it surveyed. Pauline Henry speculates that this may have been a wedding gift to Alex Junior.

  • Mary Armstrong+ b. b 1753, d. b 1793; I believe that the Mary HART (wife of Epenetus HART) who witnessed the 1783 will of Robert ARMSTRONG, was the Mary, "daughter of my brother Alexander", named in that will. G Vaut67,2,5

  • George Armstrong+ b. bt 1755 - 1759, d. 18 May 1842; Note: Some have shown the father of George Washington Armstrong to be a "James Armstrong" (my #77202), but so far I have seen no evidence. For the moment, I speculate that George Washington Armstrong may be "my brother Alex's son George" mentioned on page 2 of the 1783 will of Robert Armstrong. PLEASE NOTE: This is pure speculation at this time (27 Dec 2014) based on circumstantial evidence of first names (including of siblings and children) and ages. G. Vaut68,5

In the 1870 Census of McHenry Co, Illinois- Richard's wife's name was 'Jane'. In the 1900 Census of Cross County, Arkansas his wife's name was Luzetta. In both census records the women are the same age. In the Registration Record of Births for Richard Fredrich Griffin his mother's name was Luzetta Eddie. I think she was named Luzetta Jane Eddie or Jane Luzetta Eddie. I need to do more research on her.1 Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Gedcom file provided by:

A reference book FHL 974 H2hw p. 176 mentions a David Giffin involved in the Revolutionary War. He ran a powder mill.1
Reference: A noted and conspicuous man among the pioneers of Potter was John Griffin, who was born in Salisbury, Ct., in 1774. He located early at Geneva, arid there married in 1795, Betsey, daughter of Epenetus Hart, and an older sister of Mrs. Richard M. Williams. Subsequenly [sic] they lived a few years in Benton on the farm now owned by Horace Freeman, in Torrey, and in 1805 moved to Augusta. In company with one, Riggs, he opened the first store in the town, and also erected an ashery and distillery on lot 4, of the fourth farm range. He soon bought out Riggs, and conducted the business alone, until he sold out to Richard M. Williams, in 1812, moving thence to Flint Creek in Seneca, where he conducted a large milling, mercantile and farming business several years, during which time he often floated pine logs from Middlesex down Flint Creek, twelve miles to his mill, availing himself of the spring freshets. His wife died at Flint Creek in 1817, leaving two children, Epenetus H. and Henry A. The first is married, lives at Chemung, Ill., and has three children. Henry A. lives at Chicago, and has six children.
In 1820 John Griffin moved to Allegany county, and settled on a pine tract, on Oil Creek, where the village of Cuba has since risen, and where he opened up his fifth abode in the wilderness. He floated his lumber down the Ohio, and toiled many years for conditions which were too for off for the immediate realization of himself and family. Before moving to Allegany he married a second wife, Bethia, sister of Edward Low of ltaly. Their children were James M., William H., Henry C. and a daughter. John Griffin was a man of remarkable physical and intelluctual [sic] endowments. Six and a half feet in stature, was broad, bony and muscular, with rare courage and confidence in his powers. Without education sufficient to read at the date of his marriage, be acquired a fair degree of book knowledge, and served several years as Justice of the Peace, and Associate Judge of Ontario county. In Allegany he was chosen a State Senator in 1832, and served four years. He was a man of mark for his time, and was a generous, liberal hearted man, with far seeing views, with great energy and ambition, but liable to visionary illusions from over confidence in the rapid march of events. He died in 184 6 at the age of seventy-two, and his wife a few years later. His surviving descendants are mostly in Illinois.4

John Griffin was a defendant named in the      This extensive file of records is associated with a legal case brought against Epenetus Hart, his heirs, and three others in 1800 by Charles Williamson, the agent for the sale of lands from the Phelps & Gorham Purchase. The case was originally brought against Epenetus Hart (Sr) for non-payment of a mortgage bond made with Williamson on 22 Dec 1794 for various properties along the shore of Lake Seneca in the area of modern Geneva.
     Apparently Epenetus didn't repay the mortgage and later mortgaged some of the same properties to George Bennet, William Dunn and Timothy Alleyn. Williamson includes these three in the suit in an effort to reclaim the properties or the value of the original loans (with interest).
     What is particularly notable is that these documents document the death of Epenetus Hart (Sr) in or about 1801. The evidence is:
          1. References in three depositions to the "late" or "deceased Epenetus Hart" and two references to his having died intestate. These references are in the depositions of Armstrong Hart, John Griffin and his wife Elizabeth (Hart); the deposition of Mary Hart (minor with her brother Armstrong as her guardian); and Jonathan Hart (minor with an Albany lawyer James Van Ingen as his guardian.
          2. The fact that the case is originally launched ca 19 July 1800 and then relaunched ca 25 March 1802 with a Bill of Revivor stating "the said Epenetus Hart died, intestate, leaving issue and heirs at law ..."
     On 16 Dec 1802 two parcels belonging to Epenetus (Sr) in Geneva are sold to repay this debt. with Epenetus Hart between 19 July 1800 and 7 January 1803 at Geneva (Originally Seneca), Ontario Co., New York, USA.10,11

John Griffin lived in 1818 at Cuba, Allegany Co., New York, USA; Posted by VKBush on Wed, 17 Jun 1998
Surname: GRIFFIN, DOLE, CRANDALL
from Civic History and Illustrated Progress of Cuba, Allegany Co., N.Y., 1822-1910, by John Stearns Minard., p.10
JOHN GRIFFIN was the oldest member of this board [first town meeting of Cuba, NY, 5 March 1822], having seen fifty years. He came here from Seneca, Ontario Co., in 1818. He is described in the county history of 1879, as "a man of more than ordinary ability, generous, enterprising and public spirited, tall fearless and possessed of unusual muscular power." He was the first appointed First Judge in the County in 1823, and was our first postmaster, his appointment bearing date July 1, 1824. He was a member of the State Senate in 1833-34-35-36. He was one of the men who held here in Cuba the first meeting called for the purpose of discussing the practicability and feasibility of the Genesee Valley Canal, which must have been in 1834 or 35, and made the first speech in the Senate in support of the enterprise. He was distinguished for his frequent use of strong, emphatic and extravagant language, and on occasion, it is said, could "swear like a trooper."
For some years he and Judge THOMAS DOLE of Pike and CLARK CRANDALL of Alfred had much to do with things in Allegany, and very little was done in which they were not consulted.
He died in 1846 and was buried in our cemetery. No traces of his descendants can now be learned though he had a number of children.
Our Griffin Creek was named for JOHN GRIFFIN, and it will quite likely carry his name down to remote posterity . "His name is on your waters and ye may not wash it out."12

Elizabeth "Betsy" Hart was listed as a resident in Epenetus Hart and Mary Armstrong's household in the census report in 1790 at Mifflin Co., Pennsylvania, USA; [Note: Next door to Alexander ARMSTRONG and John McLAIN; same paged a Thomas HOWARD. It is on the basis of the number of children in this household (9) that I speculate on the existence of two as yet unidentified children]

Elizabeth "Betsy" Hart was a defendant named in the      This extensive file of records is associated with a legal case brought against Epenetus Hart, his heirs, and three others in 1800 by Charles Williamson, the agent for the sale of lands from the Phelps & Gorham Purchase. The case was originally brought against Epenetus Hart (Sr) for non-payment of a mortgage bond made with Williamson on 22 Dec 1794 for various properties along the shore of Lake Seneca in the area of modern Geneva.
     Apparently Epenetus didn't repay the mortgage and later mortgaged some of the same properties to George Bennet, William Dunn and Timothy Alleyn. Williamson includes these three in the suit in an effort to reclaim the properties or the value of the original loans (with interest).
     What is particularly notable is that these documents document the death of Epenetus Hart (Sr) in or about 1801. The evidence is:
          1. References in three depositions to the "late" or "deceased Epenetus Hart" and two references to his having died intestate. These references are in the depositions of Armstrong Hart, John Griffin and his wife Elizabeth (Hart); the deposition of Mary Hart (minor with her brother Armstrong as her guardian); and Jonathan Hart (minor with an Albany lawyer James Van Ingen as his guardian.
          2. The fact that the case is originally launched ca 19 July 1800 and then relaunched ca 25 March 1802 with a Bill of Revivor stating "the said Epenetus Hart died, intestate, leaving issue and heirs at law ..."
     On 16 Dec 1802 two parcels belonging to Epenetus (Sr) in Geneva are sold to repay this debt. with Epenetus Hart between 19 July 1800 and 7 January 1803 at Geneva (Originally Seneca), Ontario Co., New York, USA.8,9

Amy Hart was a defendant named in the      This extensive file of records is associated with a legal case brought against Epenetus Hart, his heirs, and three others in 1800 by Charles Williamson, the agent for the sale of lands from the Phelps & Gorham Purchase. The case was originally brought against Epenetus Hart (Sr) for non-payment of a mortgage bond made with Williamson on 22 Dec 1794 for various properties along the shore of Lake Seneca in the area of modern Geneva.
     Apparently Epenetus didn't repay the mortgage and later mortgaged some of the same properties to George Bennet, William Dunn and Timothy Alleyn. Williamson includes these three in the suit in an effort to reclaim the properties or the value of the original loans (with interest).
     What is particularly notable is that these documents document the death of Epenetus Hart (Sr) in or about 1801. The evidence is:
          1. References in three depositions to the "late" or "deceased Epenetus Hart" and two references to his having died intestate. These references are in the depositions of Armstrong Hart, John Griffin and his wife Elizabeth (Hart); the deposition of Mary Hart (minor with her brother Armstrong as her guardian); and Jonathan Hart (minor with an Albany lawyer James Van Ingen as his guardian.
          2. The fact that the case is originally launched ca 19 July 1800 and then relaunched ca 25 March 1802 with a Bill of Revivor stating "the said Epenetus Hart died, intestate, leaving issue and heirs at law ..."
     On 16 Dec 1802 two parcels belonging to Epenetus (Sr) in Geneva are sold to repay this debt. with Epenetus Hart between 19 July 1800 and 7 January 1803 at Geneva (Originally Seneca), Ontario Co., New York, USA.11,12

The successor of John Griffin in Middlesex was his brother­in-law, Richard M. Williams. He was born in Huntington, Long Island, March 17, 1776, and was a descendant of a Welsh family, early resident on Long Island. His father was the third in lineal descent, whose name was Nathaniel. His mother, Penelope Young, was from another Welsh family of Long Island, from which also sprung Samuel Young of Saratoga, a celebrated character in the political history of New York. The family of Nathaniel Williams were retained as prisoners within the British line at Flatbush during their occupation of New York and Long Island, in the Revolutionary war. The mother died there in 1780, while Richard M., the only surviving child was receiving :an education in a military cam p, as the pet of the British officers. At five years he could shoot at a mark with great precision and was a remarkable expert in fencing and boxing, and a frequent winner for his backers in these sports. He retained these accomplishments well along in life, and made them available in is pioneer experience. His education as a scholar was conferred by private tutors and was thorough, embracing mathematics, the best scientific lore of his time, and good classical attainments. What is unusal among men in active live, he made hi knowledge available in his daily affairs, and retained it fresh and clear in his mind. His Latin and French works he continue to read while lived and seldom found itneedful to consult an index for a passage, even when his mind had not recurred to it for many years. In his thirst for knowlege he gatherd a large library and surrounded himself with all sorts of publications. He was trained a merchant by his father who moved to Lansingbnry, N. Y., after the close of the Revolutionary war.
In 1793 while yet a minor he came to Geneva, where he was one of the first three to establish a store, and traffic with the Indians and pioneers In 1795 he married Amy, daughter of Epenetus Hart. She was born in Pennsylvania, Jan. 7, 1719. In 1798 they went to Savannah, Ga., where his father accompanied them and died. In five or six years the unhealthy climate compelled them to retum. In 1805 he opened trade as a merchant at Aurora, N. Y., under the firm of R. M. & Z. Williams. His partner Zebulon Williams had a store on the opposite side of the I,ake in Seneca Co., afterwards he resided in Benton, and then in Palmyra. In 1812 he succeeded John Griffin in Middlesex, (now Potter) carrying forward large operations as a farmer, merchant, and manufacturer of potash and whisky. He died there June 4, 1837. He was a strong supporter of Jefferson, and Daniel D. Tompkins was repeatedly supervisor of Middlesex, and was offered the office of First Judge, when Yates county was organized. This he refused but afterwards consented to serve as Associate Judge a short time. He was no seeker of office, but in his business he was active and driving, as well as just and accurate. By his efforts a mail route was established from Canandaigua through Rushville, Potter, Naples, Blood's Corners, Liberty and Prattsburg, keeping it up at his own risk and expense till the offices became remunerative to the government. He had stores at all these places except Blood's Corners and Rushville. Socially he was a warm and steadfast friend, and he endeavored to render his children intelligent and faithful to the moral virtues. Four of their ten children became adults, Eliza, Richard II., Susan P. and Mary H.
Eliza born in Vernon, (now Torrey) in 1805, married Brit­ ton M. Williams of Orange Co. They lived sometime on the Middlesex (now Potter) homestead, and he died leaving two daughters, Emma H. and Margaret E. Emma H. married Martin B. Lewis, and resides at Red Wing, Minnesota. Margaret E. married Rev. Edwin Rice and died at La Crosse, Wis., leaving one son, Edwin W.
Richard H. Williams born at Aurora, N. Y., Aug. 3, 1807, married Phebe, daughter of Jesse Ryder, of Sing Sing, N. Y. October 23, 1834. Their children have been Henry M., Sarah E., Helen L., Margaret D. and Edward E. Sarah E. died at the age of twenty, in 1861. Henry M. a young man of great energy and personal worth, went to Melbourne, Australia, in 1861, where for some years he was actively engaged as a merchant; but loss of health compelled his return, and he is still an invalid. The family have resided in New York since 1863. Mr Williams was trained to business under his father in the extensive operation of his affairs which included farming and a large trade in general merchandise and produce.     He was educated in the schools of the country, and the Academies of Aurora and Canandaigua, and the Scientific Rensselaer School, at Troy, N. Y., under its founder, the famous Prof. Amos Eaton . Residing in Middlesex till 1863, he was always a prominent and influential citizen of the county. He and John Spicer were the first commissioners of the county for loaning the U. S. Deposite Fund and continued in office two terms. They made the entire original investment without the least loss or error. Io 1843 be represented the county in the Assembly, and became conspicuous by his report as chairman of a select committee, advocating the repeal of the restriction on the practice of medicine. The actual repeal took place the next year, after more than thirty years agitation. (See Assembly Doc. No. 69, 1843.)
In l 845 he was elected to the State Senate from the old Seventh District. He served two years, his term being cut 11hort by the adoption of the constitution of J846. As a Senator he was an able, industrious and influential legislator. It was due to him that the law requiring checks for baggage on railroads was passed, he having introduced the bill and urged its passage. He also made a report much in advance of public opinion, but sound in its foresight, favoring the consolidation of the seven railroads, now constituting the new New York Central. (See Senate Doc., 149, Vol. 4, 1847, also a bill requiring these roads ta re-lay their several tracks with the heavy T rail; also a bill allowing the same roads to carry freight throughout the year by paying canal tolls. He was distinguished for his persistent nod successful advocacy of the measure for the reduction of salt duties, the State officers pro­ posing a duty of three cents a bushel within the State, and one cent for that which went out of the State. By his efforts they were defeated and the duty made uniform at one cent. He also advocated the Niagara Suspension Bridge and on his motion its charter was reconsidered and passed, after it had been deliberately voted down as impracticable. Upon its recall it was placed in his charge as a member of the railroad committee. In the support of legal reform he was earnest and persistent, and finally succeeded in obtaining a commission filled with his nominees in the place of those known to be adverse to change, as was a part of the first commission. (See Albany Atlas, April 1847, No. 2009.)
He was twice 1mpervisor of Middlesex, and was associated with George A. Sheppard, commi1111ioner for the re-erection of the county jail in 185i. In 1865-6 he held a position in the U. S. Customs in the city of New York. His life public and private has been one of activity and usefulness, and while marked by independence has never been t.1inted by selfishness nor corruption. He has been efficient and zealous in the col­ lection and arrangement of facts and incidents for this County History. His first vote was cast in 1828 for General Jackson, for whom he was the first to raise the standard in Yates County. He was also among the foremost to organize and 11upport the Free Soil Party of 1848, and never consented to its re· absorption with the reactionary elements from which that party cut loose. Hence he was a thorough Republican long before the party had its birth, and was active, prominent and effective in its organization. A man of generous personal qualities, he has a ready hospitality for new ideas, and is consequently a progressive man, generally in advance of most others, especially in agricultural, political and social improvement. His vigor of mind, integrity of character and devotion to human progress, entitle him to rank among the foremost men 1vho have given celebrity to Yates county.
Susan P. born at Aurora in 1812, married Henry Husted of Pine Plains, Dutchess Co. They settled in Potter on the Enoch Bordwell farm, on lot 5, of the fifth farm range, where they still reside. Their children are Mary E., Emma C. Sarah S. Cornelius and Isabella S. Emma C. is the wife of Frank H. Purdy. Sarah S. married Jeffrey Thomas of Potter, resides in Michigan. Henry Husted about forty years a resident of Potter, has been a prominent man in political affairs, frequently holding office in his town. He is a member of the Methodist Church.
Mary H. born in Middlesex, in 181J, died 8ingle at the homestead, in 1856.
Mrs. Amy Williams survived her husband many years, and died at the residence of her son, Richard H. Williams, in 1862, nearly eighty-four years old. She was a woman of great energy and perseverance, and her kindest sympathies were always extended to all she deemed deserving. As a wife and mother she was most devoted and affectionate.1,6
Richard Montgomery Williams was a defendant named in the      This extensive file of records is associated with a legal case brought against Epenetus Hart, his heirs, and three others in 1800 by Charles Williamson, the agent for the sale of lands from the Phelps & Gorham Purchase. The case was originally brought against Epenetus Hart (Sr) for non-payment of a mortgage bond made with Williamson on 22 Dec 1794 for various properties along the shore of Lake Seneca in the area of modern Geneva.
     Apparently Epenetus didn't repay the mortgage and later mortgaged some of the same properties to George Bennet, William Dunn and Timothy Alleyn. Williamson includes these three in the suit in an effort to reclaim the properties or the value of the original loans (with interest).
     What is particularly notable is that these documents document the death of Epenetus Hart (Sr) in or about 1801. The evidence is:
          1. References in three depositions to the "late" or "deceased Epenetus Hart" and two references to his having died intestate. These references are in the depositions of Armstrong Hart, John Griffin and his wife Elizabeth (Hart); the deposition of Mary Hart (minor with her brother Armstrong as her guardian); and Jonathan Hart (minor with an Albany lawyer James Van Ingen as his guardian.
          2. The fact that the case is originally launched ca 19 July 1800 and then relaunched ca 25 March 1802 with a Bill of Revivor stating "the said Epenetus Hart died, intestate, leaving issue and heirs at law ..."
     On 16 Dec 1802 two parcels belonging to Epenetus (Sr) in Geneva are sold to repay this debt. with Epenetus Hart between 19 July 1800 and 7 January 1803 at Geneva (Originally Seneca), Ontario Co., New York, USA.7,8

Richard H. Williams from Freepage site: Richard H. Williams was educated in the Academies at Aurora and Canandaigua, New York and then at the Scientific Rensselaer School at Troy, N.Y. under its founder, Professor Amos Eaton. Residing in the Town of Middlesex, Yates Co., New York until 1863, he was always a prominent and influential citizen of the county. He and John Spicer were the first commissioners of the county for loaning the U.S. Deposit Fund and continued in office for two terms. They made the entire original investment without the least loss or error. In 1843 he represented the county in the New York Assembly, and in 1845 was elected to the State Senate from the old 7th District. He served two years, his term being cut short by the adoption of the constitution in 1846. He was twice supervisor of the Town of Middlesex, Yates Co., NY. "His life public and private has been one of activity and usefulness, and while independent has never been tainted by selfishness nor corruption."5 Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Gedcom file provided by:
