First, Thank you for your response. I don't have anything that confirms that he remarried. I'm sure it is a possibility, but no family stories about it. The children you listed are the same that I have found and the parents you have listed are the ones I am looking into. From correspondence with others on ancestry.com it appears there is another Isaac Archer living in the Birmingham area around the same time who was a doctor. There is nothing at this time that suggests they are the same person. I have an Ambrotype of him from around 1880, and a tin type of him from a later date as a much older man, so I know he did not died during the civil war, but I havenot been able to place him (with records) after the mid 1800's. My grandfather said he remembered him, which would suggest he lived to be over 100.I will look into the Texas census record. Thanks again. This side of my family has been difficult to find.
