edited by George W. Archer, (Simon, Stephen, Stephen, Nathan, James I). The editor's father was born in Sandyville, Jackson Co., WV 24 Aug 1884, son of Stephen Archer and Helen Josephine Butcher. For more on all descendants of Patrick Archer, contact George Archer at the above address or at garcher@wdn.com.]

WARNING: The Wood Co., WV records covered in these files were taken from LDS microfilm with some records field checked for accuracy at the Court House in Parkersburg, WV. None of these records should be considered complete. Good research methods require researchers to see the original records. Do not depend on the accuracy or completeness of copies. Wood Co., WV Birth and Death records have a multitude of different volumes and time periods covered. The LDS filming covered some of these volumes, but not all. A thorough inspection of the shelves in the courthouse in Parkersburg and local inquiry about volumes that may not be stored with public access will be necessary to ensure a complete records search.

PROBLEMS:

The Registers of Births were not fully indexed indexed. Indexes that exist are: 1853-1906, 1913-1920, 1940-1968. The intervening years may require page-by-page search. Many early volumes have no bride index, requiring an every-page search.

The film at LDS had a shadow over the age of the father in every case rendering it unreadable from the first Archer entry at 11 Nov 1898. This condition stopped after a while as reflected by the readings below.

"The Jackson County, West Virginia Past and Present," Jackson Co., WV Historical Society, 1990, p. 99 on Jocephus Archer, father of Cephus, written by his daughter, Flossie Lincicome, says that Cephus and wife, Lillie, lived in Spencer, Roane Co., WV, moved to Williamstown, WV, but Cephus died "at the home of his son in Syracuse, NY, but was brought back to Spencer, WV." The son, Wayne R. Archer md. 20 Dec 1939 in Williamstown, WV (Wood Co., Marriages Vol 42, p. 247) to Lillian M. Fenton and listed his parents as C.N. (sic) and Lillie Archer. Wayne was born in Roane Co., WV in 1912 and was residing in Blodget Mills, NY at the time of his marriage, corroborating Flossie Lincicome's narrative.]

[GWA comment: Wayne Edward Archer (Sumpter, Luther, Michael, Joseph, James I, Patrick) and Jeanette Louise Harbin. Either this was a first wife with a similar given name or it is a transcription error. Birth records for all four other children by Wayne list him as an employee of Corning Glass Works. The fact that this mother was born in Jackson Co., and not Wirt Co., WV where Jeanette Harbin, the mother of his four children, suggests this is a first marriage.]
