Armstrong, Acie Alexander

Acie Alexander Armstrong was born September 4, 1915 in Bluffton, Arkansas. He was the youngest son of John Julian Armstrong and Susan La Nora Barnes Armstrong, who preceded him in death. He had nine brothers and sisters, who also preceded him in death. He went to be with his Heavenly Father, March 15, 2006. Acie became a Christian during his 20's and joined the Baptist faith, which he continued in until his death. He was a charter member and deacon of Trinity Baptist Church. Currently he was a member of Grace Baptist Church. Acie, was also a lifetime member of the Free & Accepted Masons Lodge #123, Bluffton, Arkansas. He married Willene Mobley in Bluffton, Arkansas on February 2, 1936. After 52 years of marriage, Willene preceded him in death on Feb. 22, 1988. He married Winfred Bonnie Menzler January 24, 1990; she preceded him in death on March 19, 2002.

Acie was the son of farmers, and spent his early years migrating between Arkansas, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. After such experience he excelled at the art of farming. He loved to tell his family of his adventures. One adventure he remembered fondly was when he and a nephew, both age 13, decided they had had enough of south Texas and hopped a freight train to Arkansas. They found a boxcar with a layer of clean hay, and when the train began to move, they were soon sound asleep. After a good night's rest they poked their heads out in the morning to see where they were, only to discover that they were about 1/4 mile from where they had started, sitting on a siding. Eventually they did turn up in Arkansas, 1,000 miles away, to the relief of family. A self taught man of many skills, he was an excellent carpenter, mechanic and smithy. He took pride in being a dependable, hard worker, whose word was his bond, and that he was earning man's wages at the age of 12. In 1953 he went to work for the Final County Highway Department as a laborer. He soon earned the nickname of Governor as he insisted that the job be done right and safely. He retired 25 years later as road foreman for District Three based out of Casa Grande.

A devoted father and grandfather, he took great delight in family gatherings and hunting and fishing with his sons. His courage, love, humor and tenacity will be missed by all.

Acie and Willene had five children: Harry Vasco Armstrong (preceded him in death August 1951), Shirley Cook (Hollis) of Tombstone, AZ, Charles Armstrong (Arlene) of Casa Grande, AZ, Bobby Armstrong (Marsha) of Glendale, AZ and Jerry Armstrong of Casa Grande, AZ. He is also survived by five grandchildren: Bryan Armstrong (Dee) of Lovington, IL, Yvette Armstrong of Casa Grande, AZ, Holly Cook Massie (Timothy) of Fort Irwin, CA, Sonia Cook Gasho (David) of Pearce, AZ, and Chad Armstrong of Casa Grande, AZ (US Marines, Iraq); 12 great-grandchildren: Kaleb, Ch|oe & Acie Armstrong; Sara, Jessica, Ross & Noah Massie; Emily, Daniel & James Gasho; step-grandchildren: Jennifer Odom & Myranda Butler.

Armstrong, John M.

John M. Armstrong passed away last Thursday, August 2, 1923 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Thomas Kendall, on Horsehead creek west of Clarksville.

Mr. Armstrong was born August 18, 1834 in Henry County, Tennessee. He was the son of Captain Lynas Armstrong who was a soldier in the Mexican war. [ See note below regarding his who his father was.] When John M. was a small boy the Armstrong family moved to that part of Arkansas which is now Logan County. When a young man he went to Texas and was in that state when he enlisted in the army of the Civil War. He was a member of Company K of the llth Texas Cavalry and was wounded slightly both at Marysville, Tennessee and Elk Horn, Arkansas. After receiving his discharge he came back to Arkansas and soon located at his present home now occupied by his son, Lee, on Horsehead creek. On September 21st, 1865 he was married to Mary Elizabeth Hamilton. They were the parents of three children, Felix Lee, Mary Belle and Lillie. The last named died in infancy.

In 1874 Mr. Armstrong was elected sheriff of Johnson County. This was the year in which the present court house building was completed and during the turmoil of reconstruction and the days of open saloons, when to be the sheriff of a county meant much exposure and often hazardous encounters with both desperadoes and drunks. Mr. Armstrong served two terms, deporting himself well in that capacity. He was a member of the old Spring Hill Cumberland Presbyterian church having joined soon after its re-organization after the civil war. Mr. Armstrong was a public spirit man. He was always honorable in his dealings with men and out spoken and straight forward in expressing his opinion. He never swerved from that which he knew to be right. The upbuilding of the school and all public enterprises received his full support.

Mrs. Armstrong passed away on April 11, 1903. And most of the intervening years between her death and his, he spent at his old home with Mr. and Mrs. Lee Armstrong, however recently he went to the home of his daughter where he was when his spirit took its flight into that land from whence none ever return.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Boudra and Dr. E. Hefner. Mr. Armstrong belonged to the John C. Hill Camp of Civil War Veterans and Hon. E. T. McConnell and James G. Coffee each gave an address eulogizing in brief the splendid record of Mr. Armstrong both as a man and as a soldier. One of the veterans who attended this burial said that even though the day was a week day yet the concourse of persons present was as great if not out-numbering any he had ever seen in a rural cemetery. His grave was a blooming mound of beauty, thus attesting the esteem, in which he was held in the country where he has spent the most of his long life. [ Note: This obit has his fathers name listed incorrectly. His father was Thomas Armstrong. Verified based on 1850 Census and testimony made by John M Armstrong in a Supreme Court hearing regarding a case in Okla. ] (WWW.YellCountyObits.org, Submitted by: Patron, 8/2/1923)
