Hendricks had previously told her that Wyandot lands were all claimed, and that she should apply for Shawnee lands, though at present her request had not gotten any attention. Her husband, John M. Armstrong, was the brother of Silas Armstrong, and deceased at the time of this letter, leaving her with 5 children. Both Silas and John were leaders of the Wyandot Nation.

Letter, Lucy B. Armstrong to Wm Brindell
Authors: Armstrong, Lucy B.
Date: March 8, 1858
Lucy Armstrong wrote from Wyandotte, Kansas Territory, to Gen. William Brindle at the Land Office in Lecompton, regarding her request for land entitled to her as the widow of John M. Armstrong. Armstrong listed the number of documents she had sent to the Land Office in order to prove herself an heir of John M. of the Wyandot nation, which would show her entitlement to a "float". She had not seen any action on the matter, and wanted to secure a land claim in the Shawnee lands before they were all spoken by white settlers. Armstrong expressed great distress over this matter, having fought to claim her land entitlement for over a year.
