Armstrong, Florence Catherine, daughter of William Armstrong, M.D., of Collooney, Co. Sligo, Ireland, born March 18, 1843. Her well-known hymn:— 0 to be over yonder [Longing for Heaven] was written in 1862, and published without her consent in the British Herald, Feb. 1865, p. 24, and dated "Jan., 1865."
