East Liverpool Tribune
James Armstrong, a veteran of the Civil war, died Wednesday morning, at his home on Fourth street, aged 59. He was a native of Scotland, but has resided in East Liverpool since 1851, and prior to the war of the Rebellion was employed in the old Woodward and Blakely pottery. Armstrong was a member of Col. W. H. Vodrey’s regiment, the 143d O. V. I. He was wounded in the leg during the war. A few years since his leg had to be amputated, leaving but a stump of the thigh, which has always given him about as much pain and inconvenience as the leg before amputation. Death resulted from the old wound and a complication of stomach, bowel and kidney trouble. Deceased leaves a widow but no children.
(Note – Died July 19, 1899)
