Sledge has her parents as Aaron Armstrong and Elizabeth Landers, but this is wrong.
This page has Aaron born 1777
This page has Elizabeth born in 1781
Various Landers and Armstrong sites agree with the above.
Warren Co KY marriage records show that Aaron married Elizabeth in 1800.
I think Aaron may have been her brother, not her father.
Maybe her father was named Aaron, but he is not the Aaron that married Elizabeth Landers.
LDS site says:
born 1778 KY; father John Armstrong born 1752 KY [Note that, as with much LDS info, the birth date and location for John are fabricated from thin air. The birth place for Elizabeth is also fabricated, but the year appears to be approximately correct for a change.]
There was a John Armstrong 1740 ENG who married an Elizabeth Landers 1746 ENG. He doesn't seem to have had a daughter Elizabeth, though.
This RootsWeb entry has a John Armstrong c1740 d 1818 Muhlenberg Co KY who married Mary (unknown) and had a daughter Elizabeth c1776. No Aarons are shown, and Elizabeth is shown married to (unknown) Smith.
That John's will is extant, and names his daughter Elizabeth Smith.

There was a Clement Armstrong in Johnston Co NC (where John Willoughby was born) on the 1790 census.

There were several Armstrong families in Cumberland Co, next to Johnston.
