Armour Family




Shirlie Black writes 

My paternal grandfather was Archibald Armour who evidently came from Townland Gortaloughan, Parish of Ballinamallard. 

He was born on July l2, l86l and his parents were Archibald and Catherine Armour.  He had at least one sister and one brother (names unknown since they were only referred to as "Uncle" and "Auntie" with no given name).  My paternal grandmother was Jane Armstrong, daughter of Johnston and Jane Armstrong,she was born on July 26, l862 and came from Townland Modeenagh, Parish of Enniskillen.  She too had at least one brother whose name was John.  

Both Archibald and Jane emigrated to Canada in l883 and settled in Toronto, Ontario, where they were married in l884 and raised their family there.  Archibald was Church of Ireland while Jane was Methodist.  They had five sons and three daughters, all born in Canada.  There names were Archibald,  Catherine, John, Clara Belle, Thomas, William, Edward and May.  William was my father and I am attempting to locate  anyone who might also be a descendant of this particular line.
