Rosella Armstrong (b. 14 Jan 1893) did NOT marry George W. Overfield. She married James William Overfield, b. 10 Sep 1885-1886 in Missouri, d. aft 1930).
James William Overfield is the son of William Overfield & Ellen Thurman-Overton. William and Ellen's marriage record is recorded as Ellen Overton, m. 11 Mar 1880 Webster Co., KY.
Ellen is the daughter of William Joseph Thurman (details unknown at this time) and Elizabeth Redinour (many variations to this spelling.) Elizabeth Redinour Thurman m. (2) Isaac Overton (b. 1839 Tennessee, d. bef 1910). Based on my research, I believe that Elizabeth is the daughter of James & Milley (Atkinson) Redinour. Isaac Overton is enumerated as follows in 1870 and 1880.

Ellen was either adopted by Isaac Overton or used the name Overton on the marriage record to William Overfield. After their marriage, they lived in Missouri where at least two children were born, James William and Ed. William's sister, Eliza Jane and her husband, John Q. Adams, had gone to Missouri; as well, other Overfields of this branch had gone to Missouri.
Ellen (and possibly William, or else he was deceased in Missouri) returned to Union Co., Kentucky and she married (2) Daniel "Popy" Davis 14 Apr 1892, Union Co., KY (James W. Overton, her half-brother, is bond for this marriage). Daniel "Popy" was born Dec 1877 Tennessee and died probably before 1911. He is not listed in the Kentucky Death Index 1911-2000 and Ellen is a widow in the 1920 census. She is living with her son, Ed Overfield, in 1920. James W. Overton (b. 8 Oct 1868 Wayne Co., KY; d. 7 May 1934 Henderson, KY), bond on Ellen's marrige, married Eliza Ann Trent (dau. of Charles H. Trent & Susan Duncan).
