Barry, I noted your reply to Tracy and find this quite interesting. I am the great grandson of Benjamin Marcus Armstrong and Mary Ann Gertrude Garvin. My full name is Grant Anthony Garvin Armstrong. The name Garvin was given to every eldest boy regardless of who preceded him, which was a tradition I was told. I am the son of Eric Armstrong who was the son of Claude Harold Armstrong. No doubt, Constance Armstrong was my grand father's sister. I only knew that Benjamin and Mary Ann had some 10 children. My dad (prior to his death) did give me some names but to the best of my recollection they were all male names. I would dearly love to contact any family members. There is a branch of the Armstrongs living in Australia (that is my lot) and in the United kingdom with whom I still have contact. My own family has grown as well. It is my one wish to locate as many decendants as I can.
For your information My brother Grahham, who also has the surname of Mary Ann's mother's people as one of his Christian names (antoehr tradition - bestowed on every second eldest male now lives in Tasmania. My sis Mary Ann lives in California, and my cousin Barry Armstrong lives in Sydney NSW, whilst I am the only member of the Armstrongs who migrated to Victoria - still resides here.
If Tracy or any other Armstrong decended from Benjamin and Mary Ann woould like to contact me via email, (my telephone number is 61+3+56253707 mobile 61+3+400 521 880 Fax 61+3+56253009 I would be delighted to hear from them
