Family Facts

Mary Bell

Mary Bell is the 2nd great-grandmother of Mike Huckabee. Researching Mary Bell was a little tricky as she married Scott Whitney, 2nd great-grandfather of Mike Huckabee, twice. She married him first in 1863 after which she had her son Charles Whitney, great-grandfather of Mike Huckabee. In 1867 she married an Irishman named Michael Rock. She and her son Charles can be found with Michael in the 1870 and 1880 census. Michael Rock is said to have died in 1881. In 1891, she remarried Scott Whitney for a second time.

Brickwall

Francis Armistead

Francis Armistead is the 7th great-grandfather of Mike Huckabee. He is often claimed to be the son of Ralph Armistead, and grandson of William Armistead and Ann Ellis. However, Francis cannot be the son of Ralph Armistead as Francis mentions Francis, son of Ralph, in his will. Francis Armistead, son of Ralph, may be an uncle, but there is no evidence to confirm this. Also no evidence has been found to confirm that Ralph Armistead is the son of William and Ann (Ellis) Armistead.

Francis Armistead is also claimed by some to be the son of John Armistead and Mary Brown, and that John Armistead is the son of Ralph Armistead. This would support the assumption that Francis Armistead, son of Ralph, was an uncle. However there is no evidence to confirm that Francis Armstrong was a son of John and Mary (Brown) Armistead, or that John Armistead was a son of Ralph Armistead.

Although there probably was some relationship between all these Armistead men, what their relationships were is unknown. So at this point, any claimed ancestors of this Francis Armistead would have to be met with skepticism unless new evidence emerges.
