Hi Neonlady

Was wondering about your interest in the Armstrong family re: Census 1901. The family you have listed were by Great Grandparents. Ellen Armstrong and George Close got married (this is verified in 1911 Census). Unfortunately, Ellen was murdered 1915 by a man (Edward Boyce) trying to shoot another person (details of which are in this booklet which can be read online
