I don't know if I amrelated or not, they could be cousins to my grandmother Lydia Ellen Archer Davis.
The birth? of Edward in KY sounds like it, that is if later that part of KY became W VA, seems that KY comes into play with my VA Archers as did with my Lee's.
Jesse W. Archer was b 1796/7 and my John W Archer was born the same. Both reported being married to a Mary, John to Mary Sanders, Jesse m Feb 01 1818 one report Orange County Indiana 2nd report Washington County. John m Jan 31 1818 Orange County Indiana. So the two could be cousin's John was a brick & rock mason, and Mormon. (he made it to High Prist) I am checking it all out, if you find any info let me know OK? I don't have any brothers or sisters on John yet, so I think I will start there if I can. I posted in the Indiana & Archer Forum also, maybe someone knows something in one or both of thoes places. This Gang was infamous, that is why we had never heard of them, Also the report of could have run with Jesse James would be hogwash, if every one run with Jesse James that is said too, he would have had a gang the size of the army and dust would show for three states when they rode.
