Family of Emma Medora Armor and William Clark Negley
Posted by: William Muller (ID *****3372) Date: May 12, 2011 at 20:04:02
  of 1337

Emma Medora Armor (1854 - 1927) married William Clark Negley (1850-1909) in 1878 and had 7 children (but only 3 [William, Emma and John] survived to adulthood). Emma is supposed to be the daughter of “Squire Armor” of Zelienople, PA, but I cannot find any reference to the Armor family in Butler Co., PA in the 1860 or 1870 census. Can anyone help me identify the given name of Emma's father and who her mother was.

William Clark Negley was a great grandson of Alexander Negley (1734-1809) of Pittsburgh, PA and a graduate of Annapolis. With his father, John Henry Negley, he published a paper in Butler.

This is part of an effort to identify the descendants of Alexander Negley.

Below is what I have on the family.

Willing to share information.

[p. 804]

"WILLIAM C. NEGLEY, son of John H. and Mary (HARPER) NEGLEY, and grandson of John NEGLEY, the pioneer, was born in the borough of Butler, December 18, 1850. He attended the public schools of the borough, and passed a short term in what is known as "The Old Stone Academy." In 1865 he entered the United States Academy at Annapolis, and there studied for four years, when he was assigned to service and spent a few years at sea. The condition of his health obliged him to abandon the naval service, and returning to Butler he became associated with his father in the publication of the Citizen, fully mentioned in the chapter of the Press. Mr. NEGLEY was married in January, 1878, to Mrs. Emma STAUFFER, daughter of Squire Armor of Zelienople. To them have been born seven children, three of whom are living: William, Emma and John. Mr. NEGLEY has always been a stanch Republican, and in his capacity as editor of the Citizen has rendered invaluable services to his party in this county."
