* Thomas Dermon (c1735-c1811) in the Revolutionary War, 1776-79,
by Tucker Hentz and by Fred Thomas

Thomas and Mary (FLENNIKEN) DeARMOND:
Thomas, born about 1735 in PA, was the son of James DEARMOND (born about 1710), and he and Mary had a son named James, born about 1755, in Mecklenburg, NC. Mary, born about 1735 in PA, was the daughter of James and Jane (GILLESPIE) FLENNIKEN. James, the son, married Elizabeth, and had a daughter, Jane DEARMOND, who married Aaron ROBISON.

Thomas and Peggy (KING) DeArmond Line:
* The lives and descendants of Peggy (KING) and Thomas DeARMOND
Thomas DeArmond (aka DERMON), born about 1735 in Ireland, may have been the son of Alex DIERMOND. The life of Thomas DeArmond spanned his days in North Ireland, County Donegal, before he came to the States and Dauphin County, PA, through his time in the American Revolutionary War, two marriages and the rearing of four sons, until his death in 1811 or 1812 at Northumberland County, PA. (Read more.) Two of his sons, King and Alexander, left Pennsylvania early in the 1800s to settle in the Butler County, Ohio area, while his other two sons Richard and Samuel remained in Northumberland County. A daughter, Elizabeth, married William McELHENIE and stayed in Pennsylvania.

Who else will we find? What can we learn of them now, almost 200 years later, and of other branches of the DeArmond family?

De Armond Web Site, by John Edwin DeArmond II, at My Heritage
John de Armond, who died in Cherokee, OK (date unknown) had at least 4 children: Arthur James, Millie, Sadie, and Mamie de Armond. They do not seem to be listed in the Roscoe d'Armand genealogy book.

Arthur James De Armond (1882-1962) came (from where is still unknown) to the Oklahoma area with his father and they got land in the Cherokee Strip land rush, on September 16, 1893. Arthur James De Armond married Mary Catherine Bullard on 18 August 1918 when he would have been about 35 years old. Arthur James died on 10 April 1962. They had 5 children:

Delmar, Millie, Jessie, Harry and John.
Delmar moved to Fresno, CA. Millie and John lived in Wichita, KS. Jessie stayed in Cherokee, OK. Harry moved to Coldwater, KS. Only Delmar and John had sons. Delmar had two sons, Arthur and Donnie. John had one son, John.

NOTE: William H. DeArmond of Wichita, KS is the only DeArmond on the list (which may be incomplete) of people who claimed land in the Cherokee Strip Land Rush of 1893.
