100 Years Ago In Windham – Armstrong Store
“WINDHAM, September 28. — “To our ‘steady diet’ of peaches and cream there was added on last nights tea table strawberries and cream, —strawberries of the Everbearing variety, fresh from the garden of N.W. Garland.
July, October, and March weather, all in less than two weeks. How the apples, peaches and dead limbs did rattle down from the trees in the great blow of Sunday and Monday. And how the tall pines did sway over the little cabin perched among the rocks, where we spent Sunday night.
The new pupils at Pinkerton Academy from here are Helen Worledge, Marguerite Alley and Viola Jackson. Samuel Ballou who lived with his sister, Mrs. George Seavey, at the Depot, died there Sunday, age 70. He was a native of Derry. Mrs. Caleb Clark is another sister.
Eugene C. True, of Derry, has bought of Eugene W. Armstrong the store property and business at the Depot which the latter has conducted for a few years past. It is the stand formerly for a long period occupied by the late Edwin N. Stickney. Mr. True has been employed for some years in the furniture store of L.H. Pillsbury & Son, in Derry, and is highly spoken of by those who know him.
