"6. Jean Baker married John Armstrong. Just when John Armstrong left Prince Edward County (Virginia) we have no way of accurately telling, but he and his wife Jean became the ancestors of a numerous tribe of Armstrongs who settled in Rogersville, Tennessee, in close proximity to their cousins, the Crocketts and the Morrows. There in 1813 John Armstrong died, leaving a will which we found on record, in which he mentions the following legatees: Jean, Thomas, William, Baker, John, and James Armstrong, and also a Samuel Baker, who was the husband of Annie Armstrong, probably and apparently a daughter. This Samuel Baker, who married Annie Armstrong, probably and -even the probability, - that here was the fifth child of Samuel Baker and Elizabeth Thomson, of Mecklenburg, who married his cousin Annie Armstrong. The son William Armstrong died in 1817 following, and named Jane, Thomas, Annie, and Nancy Armstrong, the latter- Nancy- having married a man named Forgey.
