This cemetery, established in 1904 by a Mr. Pomroy, is located about nine miles east of Stringtown on property now owned by Clyde Williams. It is rather difficult to get to, and it would be best to stop at Fugate Lumber Company about a mile west of the Williams home and ask directions. Mrs. Viva Fugate whose father, Mr. Armstrong helped establish the community and for whom it is named, accompanied us to the site and named each grave including those which have no identification and has written records to support her. The cemetery is no longer used and was in need of cleaning, but was well fenced. It was canvassed November 24, 1981, by Gwen Lowry Walker, ad Ruth Ishmael. On that date it contained 13 stones, and at least 19 unidentified graves.
If you have family buried in the Armstrong Cemetery or can take a gate photo or have obits (with newspapers permission or an obit that you can write) or tombstone photos or individual portraits or can write a short bio or have a history of the cemetery and would like to add your information to this website, contact the area coordinator for more information.
