|Dave Goudsward||RE: Esther Armstrong|
Thanks John - I have a friend who is a radio buff who was curious as to Esther's final repose. I supected she was with the Major based ont he monument design, but had no way of confirm from my location.

Would you happen to know where Esther was buried?
|Armstrong Admirer||Correct Site|
The Merrimac location is the correct one. The obit articles do, however, list the other location. Lessing, Armstrong's first biographer ("Man of High Fidelity") cites the Merricac location in his book in 1956. Armstrong and his wife Marion were married in Merricac and Marion grew up there with her family. The location is not far from the Armstrong home in Rye Beach, NH. If his burial site was moved from NY to MA Lessing does not mention it.
IT IS NOT to much to ask for accuracy, but how ever I do have news paper listings as his place of burial from his obits, as WOODLAWN Bronx NY, I was courious if he was taken there after his burial to woodlawn NY I will call both places and ask if he is buried before I list his resting place. That way for sure my information is correct. If you prefer me to send you a copy of these listings I shall. IF I can not find out for sure his resting place I will delete his memorial. accuracy is of most importance to me and to everyone else that is on Find A Grave. It does become very trying where there are conflicting accounts.I have not been to his resting site, but have much respect for him and will make a very every effort to correct this information.

I have located news paper clippings of his burial as WoodLawn Bronx NY, I have corrected this on his memorial. Please advise if his burial has been changed to the state of Mass. Thank you

|AMMNY||Thank you for the information|
I have corrected the information that I had listed.I did see two locations for this name and I am not certain of the county in which it is located. If it is wrong I will change it again. I am sorry that I left you feeling troubled with the wrong information. I happen to be a fan of his and did not see him listed, therefore I took the effort to list his name. I appreciate your e mail as information on all people that have passed is very impotent so that they will not be forgotten and everyone can locate the resting places of these great people.
