There is an ancestry tree which shows John W Armstrong passed away in 1922 (without source) - this is incorrect because he shows on the next 1925 census Providence Ward 7.

John W Armstrong   37 Mary Armstrong   36
Margaret Armstrong   15 Anna Armstrong   13
Elizabeth Armstrong   13 John Armstrong   10
Clarence E Armstrong   5 Francis J Armstrong   6 months.

Thank you Sandra, you've done so much.

1925-37=1888 which is closer to 1889 than 1891.

I think this family is closer. Some of the name match relatives, although common for the time.
McGrath (Mitchelstown, Cork and Manchester)
Armstrong (Ballinamallard, Fermanagh)
Breen (Omagh, Tyrone)
Gofton (Northumberland)
Miller (upto 1880s Clones, Monaghan, from 1880s Sancton and Market Weighton, Yorkshire)
Donnelly (Collegeland, Armagh/Tyrone)

Respecting #metoo I won't kiss you :-) but thank you massively.

This is them.  Father James Armstrong and mother Anne Jane Woods.  As the year is estimated I'll take it as not true.

The family never heard again from John from the early 1920s.  This is amazing.  I will have to increase my subscription to see if I can find descendants now.

Time to celebrate :-)

On that headstone was Margaret Mary 1908 which predates their marriage.  She appears in FamilySearch with them as parents with a birth year of 1911 but that was the year Anna was born.

Hi Rosie,
  that sounds very like him in terms of similar DOB 01/06 but RootsIreland and EmeraldAncestors definitely both have him as 01/06/1889.  Also he served during WWI in the British army, Black Watch.  I'll see if I can find his service record to confirm year of birth.
  Kilskerry is the area as Tempo, they were from between Trillick and Ballinamallard.

It is quite a coincidence.

thank you
Paul

There is a Naturalization Record   Rhode Island for a John William Armstrong this one born
1 st June 1891 kilskerry Fermanagh does this sound like him ?

Looks like this John William Armstrong married a Mollie Conley 20 June 1909 Rhode Island

Rosie

Glad it was the right one for you and all the information from Sandra wonderful
