  1. Lydia. B. Hunter here. Over the last several years during my Armstrong family research, I have come across family names connected to them. My 2nd cousin is Mildred Bynum Grant. My great -uncle Frank Armstrong’s daughter was Christine A. Bynum. My former church member’s mother was Odessa Bynum Atkins.
