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