Am seeking information on Julia A.Armstrong, a widow of Unknown Armstrong of (I think!)Bristol, Bucks County, PA.Julia's birthplace was listed in census records as Pennsylvania, and she a son, Edwin E. Armstrong, by her first husband,an Unknown Armstrong, in Bristol, Pennsylvania. At some point Julia moved from PA to TN, where she married her second husband, John Cossen/Cossar, in 1833, in Hardeman County, TN. After the death of John, she moved to Tallahatchie County, MS, with her young son by Cossen/Cossar to live with her older son Edwin E. Armstrong, by her first marriage. This is how her line goes:
Descendants of Julia Ann (Armstrong)
1 Julia Ann (Armstrong) b. PA 1794 - d. TN 1860
2 Edwin E. Armstrong b. PA 1818 -
*2nd Husband of Julia Ann (Armstrong):
+John Cossen (Cossar)d. TN
2 Charles Gordon Cossar b. TN 1834 - d.MS 1874
I do not know Julia's maiden name or who her first husband was, other than his last name was Armstrong. And add John Cossen/Cossar as a second brick wall that continues to puzzle me. There was a James Clunn Armstrong also from Bristol, PA, in the adjoining county in MS, but I have been unable to connect them to this family.
ANY information or leads would be greatly appreciated.
