Hello Ivan I see that M was working with you in the Ontario group last year.Thought I would try a different approach.The Image for 1911 Census of Canada for this family is very hard to read.So I decided to look at the marriage for Alice to Rollett Andrew Carson.I put his name in the Ontario Cemetery Ancestor Index and came up with a Cemetery Name,Barrie Union Cemetery,Vespra Twp,Simcoe County,Barrie,Ontario.The Cemetery I.D. number is 3651.I did a search for the name Armstrong has many buried there with the same names as on your list.I would think if you could get a transcript for this Cemetery maybe of great help to you,the confusion seems to in the names & dates of the children with the image being so poor in the 1911 Census.Hope this is some help.http://ogs.andornot.com/CemeteryIndex.aspx
