Monday, August 5, 1918
Early Settler, and Long Prominent in Shenandoah Society
Mrs J. B. Armstrong died at 7:30 p. m., Thursday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Richard DeRouse, on Thomas Avenue. Mrs. Armstrong's last illness began in January, and it was probably caused from an injury received in a fall down stairs, about two years ago. She returned from Florida about six weeks ago, where she had been accustomed to spend the winters. She has been under the care of a most competent trained nurse, Mrs. E. H. Roberts, for the last six months. Mrs. Armstrong would have been 80 years old in December.
Harriet Louisa Hoag was born at Milford, New York. Her father, James Hoag, was a New York Quaker, and her mother, Louisa Lee, was of English descent. When she was about four years old, the family emigrated to Knoxville, Ill., making the trip by boat on the New York canal and the great lakes to the village of Chicago, going from there by wagon. She had three brothers and seven sisters all of whom have passed away. They were: Edwin Hoag and Lyman Hoag, formerly of Page county, Looman Hoag of Kansas, Mary, who died when young, Mrs. James Newman, formerly of Northboro, and Mrs. Samuel Holyoke, Mrs. Henry Wilcox, Mrs. Julia Swartout and Mrs. Jane Wilcox, all of New York state or Massachusetts.
Mrs Armstrong was a graduate of Knox College at Galesburg, where she met J. B. Armstrong. They were married July 25, 1860 at Quincy, Ill. They went to hear the famous Lincoln-Douglas debate. Mr. and Mrs. Armstrong moved toCorrunna, Mich. and later to Windsor, Ill. They moved from there to Shenandoah in 1876, which has been their home ever since except during the winter months, for the last several years, when they lived in Florida. Seven children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Armstrong: Mrs. Grace West, deceased, J. B. Armstrong Jr., and T. C. Armstrong of Shenandoah and Miss Louise of Tampa Florida. The latter was unable to come to the funeral.
Mrs Armstrong was popular and took an active part in the social affairs and church work in Shenandoah for many years. She was universally liked. Her husband was a prominent seed man here, having founded the J. B. Armstrong & Son Seed Company, the active management of which he turned over to his son a few years ago on account of failing health.
The funeral services were held at the Congregation Church at 2:30 Saturday afternoon, and were conducted by Rev. W. L. Ferris. Mrs Armstrong was a charter member of the Congregational Church. Appropriate music was furnishedby a ladies quartet composed of Misses Harriet and Mabel Ferris, Miss Mary Chandler and Mrs. Henry Read. The internment was in the Rose Hill Cemetery. The pall bearers were C. N. Stevens, I. T. Bull, D. E. Bute, E. C. Hale and J. C. Webster.
