Ardena Jarman McRee was my great-great-grandmother on my
father's side of the family. My father, Robert Duke Armstrong was born in Arkansas on Dec. 21, 1912. He had a twin brother who died. My grandmother, Blanche Emma Duke, also, was born in Arkansas on December 10, 1880. She married Eugene Armstrong, who was born in Mississippi, on January 17, 1900 in Arkansas. Blanche Emma Duke was the daughter of Emma McRee, born approximately 1854 in Mississippi, and she was the daughter of Ardena McRee.
Emma McRee married John Fountain Duke on January 19, 1876.
They had three daughters, one of which was my grandmother.
Emma McRee died in Arkansas in 1887. John F. Duke remarried and had two more daughters, and he died on May 27, 1894, before his last daughter was born. Her name was Betty Duke and she was my great-aunt and she lived in Clarendon, Arkansas
