    Notes 
    • Excerpts from daughter, Ethel (Hand) Armstrong's Story "A Family Named Hand
      By then mother was pregnant again and one June day we had a little brother. There was some complications. Before mother had born all her children without a doctor but this time she wanted one. My father had refused. No doctor was going to handle his wife but later after he learned that there was a woman doctor in El Dorado he consented to having her tend mother. There ?since was some kind of trouble and father refused to let her do what she felt was necessary and she ran out of patience with the whole thing and packed her bag and was leaving but father conceded for once in his life and called her back and she delivered him a son. I am sure that made up for everything for ?all. After five girls he finally got another son. They named him George Jonathan. I don't know where the George came from but the Jonathan was after father's father of course. Looking back it seems to me now that George was a little retarded but I asked Harvey about him many years later and he said, "NO WAY", so maybe it only seemed so to me. It doesn't matter because he never grew up.
