John Armstrong
The following, regarding John Armstrong, was extracted from the book, History of Washington County, Pennsylvania with Biographical Sketches of Many of Its Pioneers and Prominent Men (Boyd Crumrine, editor):

     In 1781, when Washington County was laid out, John Armstrong lived on Miller's Run, where now the county line crosses the creek.  He also had a mill in operation.  Nothing has been learned of his history; the place, however, has been occupied as a millsite all these years.  The present mill was built by Samuel Morgan, and was for several years owned by A. Greer.  It is now owned by William Crane.
