The Family of Joseph Armington in America tells the story of a family who lived through, and was instrumental in the French and Indian War, The Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Civil War, two World Wars, Korea and the Vietnam Era. In 1713, Joseph Armington came to Boston from the Isle of Guernsey with his wife and son, Joseph. Members of the Armington family still live in Massachusetts, but many have moved on to CT, RI, ME, NY, PA, OH, IN, LA, MT, CA, Fl, and even as far away as Kathmandu, Nepal!

Thomas returned from Canada blind, regained his sight with the help of a Philadelphia doctor, and eventually married his beloved Hannah.
