Sunday's Obituary - Easter Vail Armstrong

In early April I wrote about my third-great-grandmother, Easter Vail Armstrong. Below is her obituary, dated 22 January 1923 in the Crawfordsville Journal Review.

Lee Vail referenced in the obituary was Leander Vail, who married Rebecca Ann Coltrain (daughter of Linden P. Coltrain and Mary Ann Darby). Leander served in the 68th and 44th Indiana Infantry during the last year of the Civil War. He died on 31 October 1929 in Clinton County, Indiana.

Easter's brother, John Daniel Vail, died in Indianapolis, Indiana on 16 December 1924.

The obituary notes that Easter had 17 grandchildren. I have only been able to account for 7 of those.
