from Cleveland [1873:1:740] “John Amstrong of Milo, was a son of James Armstrong, who emigrated at an early period from Somerset Co., New Jersey, where their family were first established in this country by the emigration of Martin Armstrong from Dublin, Ireland. They were Irish of Scotch descent. James Armstrong was a brother of Alexander Armstrong, the father of the family of Armstrongs that settled in East Benton, on the ‘Ridge Road,’’ now in Torrey. James Armstrong purchased the land, now the homestead of his son John Armstrong, on lot 12, in 1793. Coming the next year with his family, he purchased other land and settled in the town of Seneca, on the Gore in the neighborhood of William Ansley. John Armstrong, oldest son of James was the only one of the family who settled within the boundaries of Yates county. he married Sarah, daughter of Rowland Embree, in 1822, and settled on one hundred and thirty acres, the east part of lot 12, which his father had purchased twenty-nine years before, but which was still in its wild estate. They still reside on the same premises. He was born in New Jersey in 1793, and his wife at Stillwater, N.Y., in 1799.…”.8

James Armstrong and James Armstrong
from Kathy Alvis Patterson website at http://www.genealogy.com/users/p/a/t/Kathy-Patterson-OK/FILE/0002page.html seen on 21 Jan 2015:
     From Ontario Messenger 31 March 1852: “Death of a Revolutionary Soldier - James Armstrong, the father of William and Geo. Armstrong, died at his residence in this town on the 25th, at the advanced age of 90 years. Mr. A. served some time in the war of the Revolution. He was among the first settlers of this town, having emigrated to this locality prior to the year 1800. Geneva Gazette.”

     There were obviously two young men named John Armstrong who resided in Geneva NY 1817-1822. Since it is known that Sarah Embree’s husband was a son of James Armstrong (see below), we need to look elsewhere for our John Armstrong’s father. This family in Geneva NY is the only family we have found in western NY from New Jersey. So, the next question was whether James Armstrong had brothers, who might have had a son named John, b 1781-1789.

First, I will review what is known about James Armstrong and his family.
     Seneca, Ontario Co NY, 1800: 41001/00001 [a few houses away from William Ansley, see below]
     Seneca, Ontario Co NY, 1810: 12201/30010
     Seneca, Ontario Co NY, 1820: 000311/02101
     Seneca, Ontario Co NY, 1830: 000120001/00102001
     Seneca, Ontario Co NY, 1840: 0000020001/000001
     Seneca, Ontario Co NY, 1850: James “Amstrong,” 87, w/George 35, Sarah, 30
James had 5 males in his household in 1800 and 1810. Four sons were still at home in 1820. These would have included John (who married Sarah Embree in 1822) and James A; James’s death notice mentioned his sons George and William. The fifth son is unknown at this time and obviously could have been a nephew.

Cemetery and other records indicate the following children for James Armstrong:
     John, b ca 1794 NJ per 1850 census; m Sarah Embree
     William; died Oct 27 1856; ae 59 yrs, m Elizabeth Allen Smith; died June 23 1871; ae 62 yrs
     George; born Sep 25 1799; died Jan 10 1856
     James A; died Mar 17 1871; ae 75 yrs, m Nancy McPherson, wife of James A; died Apr 19 1899; ae 95-8-17; 1870 census says b ca 1794 NJ
     Cornelia, dau of James and Elizabeth; born Aug 23 1807; died Sep 6 1838

James’s father is named in History and directory of Yates County: containing a sketch of its original settlement by the Public Universal Friends ... Cleveland, 1873, page 1_740: “John Amstrong of Milo, was a son of James Armstrong, who emigrated at an early period from Somerset Co., New Jersey, where their family were first established in this country by the emigration of Martin Armstrong from Dublin, Ireland. They were Irish of Scotch descent. James Armstrong was a brother of Alexander Armstrong, the father of the family of Armstrongs that settled in East Benton, on the ‘Ridge Road,’’ now in Torrey. James Armstrong purchased the land, now the homestead of his son John Armstrong, on lot 12, in 1793. Coming the next year with his family, he purchased other land and settled in the town of seneca, on the Gore in the neighborhood of William Ansley. John Armstrong, oldest son of James was the only one of the family who settled within the boundaries of Yates county. he married Sarah, daughter of Rowland Embree, in 1822, and settled on one hundred and thirty acres, the east part of lot 12, which his father had purchased twenty-nine years before, but which was still in its wild estate. They still reside on the same premises. He was born in New Jersey in 1793, and his wife at Stillwater, N.Y., in 1799.…” [Ed. Note: the reference to the family of Alexander Armtrong is difficult. Could it be in error? Since there was another Armstrong family near Benton, did thiswriter just assume they were descended from Alexander?]

There was an Alexander Armstrong in the Seneca or Geneva, Ontario Co NY, census in 1800, 1810 and 1820. Were there two men with the same name in the same village? One Alexander Armstrong is on the same page of the census in 1820 as William Barron. The first man, at least, appears to be James’s brother.
1800 Seneca, Ontario Co NY: Alexander Armstrong, 10001/10201, same page as James Armstrong.

Was this man, the brother of James, the same as Alexander Armstrong, a Revolutionary War veteran from Pennsylvania, with a documented (much younger, possibly second) wife, Grissel Chapman, who died in Washtenaw Co MI. If his stated birthdate is correct, he could not have been a brother of James Armstrong of Geneva NY, since both were born in 1763. Based on county of origin in PA, it is probable this man was a brother of the Benton NY family. At first glance, this was one man, in Seneca Twp in 1800 with a young son, alone in 1810, but remarried in 1820 (Grissel Chapman) and rejoined at that time by two sons 16-26.
     1810 Seneca Twp, Ontario Co NY, 00001/00000 (same as above or not?).
     1820 Seneca Twp, Ontario Co NY, 100201/11010
     1830 Seneca Twp, Ontario Co NY, 111010001/1010001
     1850 Lodi Two, Washtenaw Co MI, 87 b PA, w/Grissel, 60, George, 34 NY, Alexander, 20 NY.

Alexander and Grissel also had a daughter Elizabeth. From Pioneer Ancestors, Salt Lake City Chapter SUP, at Ancestry.com:
“Elizabeth Armstrong Born 2 Apr. 1819 in Seneca Castle, Ontario County, New York Arrived in Salt Lake Valley in 1851. Elizabeth Armstrong was the daughter of Alexander Armstrong and Grissel Chapman. A number of residents in the Ontario County area of New York state went in a body to Michigan and took up land there. Records of the First Presbyterian Church in Saline, Michigan, show a petition to the New York Church by some of the departing church members for permission to start a branch of the church in Michigan. Alexander and Grissel Armstrong are listed as members of the First Presbyterian Church in Saline, Michigan. The Armstrongs settled in Lodi, Washtenaw Co MI, and Alexander Armstrong is shown as one of the first persons to apply for land there.” Elizabeth and her husband Hiram Mace, became Mormons and moved to Utah.9

Note: It is possible that the following quotes relate to the NJ James Armstrong #78510 and not the PA James Armstrong #77708. From “Early Settlers of Ontario County NY,” excerpted from the HISTORY OF ONTARIO COUNTY; compiled by Lewis Cass Aldrich; edited by George S. Conover; [1893], states that:
[1893:94]     "The old pre-emption line as run by Col. Hugh Maxwell in 1788, having been surveyed with very primitive instruments, was known to be erroneous, and a new line was run in November and December, 1792, by Benjamin Ellicott, assisted by James Armstrong, Frederick Saxton and Augustus Porter, and which was surveryed with such accuracy that its correctness has never been questioned."
[1893:254]     “The Town of Geneva was set off from the original town of Seneca Oct. 11, 1872. Among the pioneers of the town is Jerome Loomis, whose settlement in the northwest portion was made in 1788. He was a survivor of the Revolution and a man of influence in the new country. About the same time came … the dates of whose location in the town cannot be accurately determined, were ... [among others…] James Armstrong…” in 1792 at Ontario Co., New York, USA.10,11

James Armstrong lived circa 1800 at Citation, Geneva, Ontario Co., New York, USA; from McInstosh [1876:138]: "The premises now occupied by G. R. Long were originally settled by James Armstrong. Miss Sarah Armstrong, now living in the town, is a daughter."12

James Armstrong appeared in the census of 1810 at Seneca Township, Ontario Co. (now Yates Co.), New York, USA; Note: I think that this younger James, is the son of Martin Armstrong of NJ
