The only hold up on the merger of Armstrong-7508 into Armstrong-1834 is the place of death in Lawrence County, Ohio.  Was it in Burlington, the country seat, or in Lawrence Township in Lawrence County, Ohio?  Time and place of birth and time and place of marriage to John W. D. Davidson are the same as is the date of death.

John W. D. Davidson died in Burlington, Lawrence County, Ohio.
