    Notes 
    • John Armstrong was apparently born in Ireland, but lived at least for some time in Scotland, as that was where he emigrated to America from. He was 18 at the time.

      Within his first year in this country,he began working at Rosengarten and Sons, as a chemist.

      He married Marjorie Ann in 1845, when he was 25. He worked for Rosengarten and Sons as a chemist for forty-five years before he retired.

      They had nine children. Fanny, the youngest, died when she was only a few weeks old. Sarah, their second daughter, died at the age of six. Two of the children, Armer and George were twins. Armer died when he was nineteen.
      John voted for fourteen Presidents during his lifetime. He had a deep interest in Republican politics, and was a delegate from his division in the Twenty-fourth ward for years.

      He was one of the Charter members of General Marin Lodge and Philadelphia Encampment, No. 1, of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.

      Marjorie died in 1865, leaving five children under the age of fifteen.
      Thomas, the youngest, was only three at the time.
