Biography of Michael I. Armantrout (1868-1947)

Michael Irving Armantrout was born in Miami County, Indiana in November 1868. In 1891 he married Fannie Zora Meyers in Logan, Indian Territory, and thereafter appears to have spent the next few years traveling between what would become Oklahoma, Kansas, and Colorado, before settling in Oklahoma. The Armantrouts' son Paul and daughter Margaret were born in Kingman and Anthony, Kansas in the 1890s.

Armantrout was a professional photographer, setting up studios in western Kansas, northern Oklahoma, and eastern Colorado. His son Paul also worked as a professional photographer for a time before giving it up to sell insurance. Michael I. Aramantrout died in Guthrie, Oklahoma in September 1947.
