Hello Again Bob,

The son mentioned in on the 1930 census is listed in US Phone and Address Directory at the same address 1993 - 2000. I think he may be the same person listed in these land records for Utah:-



http://www.co.utah.ut.us/Dept/Record/LandRecordsandMaps/PartyName.asp?avname=ARMSTRONG,%20ALBERT%20BIRD%20JR

Perhaps this is the winding up of an estate ???

Mary Gold Armstrong born 26 Aug 1909 - half-sister to Albert Bird Armstrong (1900) married Howard Milligan. Mary died 24 Oct 2004 - Bountiful, Davis, Utah, United States of America. Howard had died in 1 Sept 1963. Think Howard was Howard Ira Milligan born 20 Dec 1905 Salt Lake City.
Mary married at 18 years and Howard 21 years with a daughter on the 1930 census. (Better not name her)

Howard Ira Milligan was buried at Mt Olivet Cemetery 4 Sept 1963. Grave location:- Grave Location: East Park_77_6

Howard Milligan 23 Furniture Salesman.
Mary Milligan 21

Priscilla J Armstrong born 16 Feb 1899 married Ray Artell Milligan born 18 Aug 1901 Ogden, Weber, Utah. They married 24 July 1922 Evanston, Uinta, Wyoming.
Ray Artell Milligan was the brother of Howard Milligan who married Albert Bird Armstrongs half sister.
So Howard and Ray were both sons of John Bull Milligan and Ida Ellen Bigelow.
Ray died 26 May 1951 Salt Lake City. Utah. Buried 29 May 1951 Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake.
Priscilla Jane died 13 March 1982 Buried 17 March 1982 Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake.
A Utah birth also gives a Priscilla J Armstrong born to Arthur B and Pricilla 10 April 1903 in Sounth Bountiful. So did the first one die as an infant and they named a second the same name  ?
This would be Priscilla with Ray in 1930 Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah. It also lists Isabella Armstrong.  She was also included in the 1930 with Albert and Vera !! Wonder if she could have married Frank Milligan - since her sister and brother had also married Milligans - must check that one out.
Ray C Milligan 28
Priscilla Milligan 28
Frank Milligan 22 Brother
Isabelle Armstrong 24 Sister In Law
Plus 2 children - will send by pm incase still living.

Just to add another complication -It would appear that in the 1930 census of Wiliam Bird Armstrong Jnr 1863 and Mary Armstrong. a son Anthon/Anthony appears born 1911. In the obituary for Anthon/Anthony/Tony it says he was the son of Albert Bird and Mary Elizabeth Gold.

http://nl.newsbank.com/nl-search/we/Archives?p_product=NewsLibrary&p_multi=DSNB&d_place=DSNB&p_theme=newslibrary2&p_action=search&p_maxdocs=200&p_topdoc=1&p_text_direct-0=0F364FA4A93B6977&p_field_direct-0=document_id&p_perpage=10&p_sort=YMD_date:D&s_trackval=GooglePM

On investigation it would appear that William Bird Armstrong originally married Mary Kemp, Mary died in April 1919. William Bird Armstrong then married the widow of his brother Albert (who had died in ( 1913 ) So William Bird Armstrong (1863) married Mary Elizabeth Gold 9 Oct 1919. Hence they are together on the 1920 census:-
William B Armstrong 56
Mary E G Armstrong 40
Leonard C Armstrong 18 Son of William and Mary Kemp
Martha H Armstrong 13 Daughter of William and Mary Kemp
Mary G Armstrong 10 Daughter of Albert and Mary Elizabeth Gold
Anthon G Armstrong 8 Son of Albert and Mary Elizabeth Gold
Dawson G Armstrong 6 Presume son of Albert and Mary Elizabeth Gold

So this gives your Albert (1900) - two more brothers.
