William Weaver Armstrong was first listed in the Oakland City Directory in 1884 as a farmer at 509 East Fourteenth Street; by 1887 he was listed as an artist at 1351 Telegraph Avenue; in 1903 as a partner of B. F. Jenkins at 364 7th Street; in 1906 as a carriage painter.
Whilst there are no records of Weaver having formal training he was schooled by his father who was an artist, during his short life span he became a competent and prolific painter of California scenery as well as scenes of the Pacific Northwest. Exposure to bad weather led to his death of tuberculosis in Oakland on Nov. 26, 1906.
