Armstrong Land Found

In February I wrote about the farm and tile factory of my 3rd-great-grandfather, David Armstrong. His land was located in Jefferson Township, Boone County, Indiana, along the border with Montgomery County. Last Friday I gave a talk at Wabash College, and on the way out of town, I drove over to Jefferson Township. Armed with Google Maps and a satellite photo, I had a pretty good idea where the land was located. After a bit of driving on some gravel roads, I found it.

The land looked like it had been freshly plowed. There was a house on the opposite side, but it looked like fairly new construction so I didn't take a picture. I'm reasonably sure this was the land where David Armstrong's farm was located in the 1870s.
