I know very little abt Archibald Marlin. But you mentioned William Marlin d 1805 in Rutherford Co. TN. William was the son of James Marlin Rowan County, NC. U have alot on this Marlin Family. Also his brother Thomas b Rowan Co. NC. Moved to Rutherford Co. TN and after Williams death moved to Missouri. Dont know much abt Thomas except a few children and who they married.They were in Pettis Co. Missouri. Hope this helps.
