From “Earliest Armstrong Ancestors” by Kathy Alvis Patterson: While trying to identify the Armstrongs in Ontario Co NY in 1810, my research led me to the Monroe Co area on Lake Ontario. Boyle Township in present-day Monroe Co NY was originally formed as the Town of Northfield. April 6, 1796. Name changed to Boyle, April 6, 1808. Penfield taken off in 1810. Perinton taken off in 1812. Name changed to Smallwood, March 25, 1813. Smallwood was split March 25, 1814 into the Towns of Brighton and Pittsford. “The first marriage [ca 1791] was that of N. [probably Joseph] Armstrong and Miss E. Cole.” 1810, Ontario Co NY, Boyle Twp: Jno Armstrong, 22201/11001 1810, Ontario Co NY, Boyle Twp: Jno Armstrong Jr, 10100/00100 1810, Ontario Co NY, Boyle Twp: Wm Armstrong, 10100/00100
