The Armstrong Cemetery has a lot of family
secrets that could answer many questions for us but it has been allowed
to go to ruin.
This land was given as a cemetery by William Armstrong, father of Sarah
Armstrong Yankie. (It is located adjacent to the properties of
William Armstrong and Jonathan Yankie.)
It is reasonable clear that William Armstrong gave a part of his land
to Sarah and Jothathan when they were married on Feburary 23, 1832.
Armstrong Cemetery is where Sarah Armstrong Yankie
is buried and it is told that one of Mahala Jane
Yankie's youngest boy is also buried there, his name was Fletcher,
he died before his teens.
Armstrong Family Cemetery
The Armstrong Cemetery is located on the Arnold-Mc Cleese Farm north
