I have a strong feeling that http://wikitree.com/wiki/Armstrong-1519 and her brother Adam may be their children, too but I don't have any conclusive proof yet.

As for Robert, a Robert Armstrong applied for a land grant in Weldford Parish in 1846. According to the Provincial Archives Index to New Brunswick Land Grants, 1784 - 1997 ( http://archives.gnb.ca/Search/RS686/Default.aspx?culture=en-CA):

Name ARMSTRONG, Robert
Volume 30
Page 193
Grant number 3655
Place Weldford
County Kent
Date 1846-10-06
Accompanying plan Yes
Acres 100
Microfilm F16331

At least this places a Robert in proximity with Adam and Annie. Perhaps order the record to see if this is your Robert?

If you'd like a research partner, please contact me. I've been neglecting them, and need to get more information on the Armstrongs!

Thank you. I found those land grants as well and might just order them. The timeframe does make sense and I have seen on a couple family trees Robert having Adam and Ann as parents. The Robert I am researching was born in 1823 and died in 1892 in Saint George, Ne Brunswick. From census records it shows both him parents were Scottish which fits. He may have also been born in Prince Edward Island which may have been where Adam and Ann first settled. Thanks again for the help.
