Archer Surnamed Persons in Obituaries published by the Parkersburg, WV
 "News and Sentinel" from 2010 to July 2013
 


 The obits are particularly valuable to identify female in-law lines of the Archers in the Ohio River Basin counties of Pleasants, Tyler, Jackson, and
 Wood Cos, WV and Washington, Noble and Monroe Cos., OH.
 
 My annotations are at the end of each obituary and begin as:  "[GWA Comment:"
 
 All ancestral strings that end with James I or Patrick are of one ancestral line: Patrick Archer c. 1719-1793, the Immigrant Irish Catholic ancestor
 and James I being his eldest of five sons:
 
 James, Joseph, Michael, Simon, and Jacob.
 
 Of these five sons, the only Archer descendants of Patrick among the obits herein are those of James I and Michael.
 
 There were several unrelated Archer lines in the Ohio River Basin area, but all of the newspaper obits where an ancestry is known pertain to Patrick's
 line.
 
 Abbreviations:
 
 b. = born
 d. = died
 dau = daughter
 md. = married
 c. = circa (Latin) "about" or approximately

 Ruth Evaline Knowlton Moore, 86, of Middlebourne, W.Va., passed away Nov. 16, 2012, at Sistersville Nursing and Rehab.
 
 She was born Sept. 21, 1926, in Little, W. Va., a daughter of the late Lonnie O. Knowlton and Beatrice Mae Archer Knowlton.
 
 Ruth attended Little United Methodist Church for over 40 years, and was a member of Hope Fellowship Church. She taught at Friendly Elementary School, she was a Home Demonstration Agent in Ritchie County, she was a 4-H Leader and she had a career in the Tyler County School system doing service as Home Economics and Guidance Counseling.

She was a thinker, a well-educated thinker; book smart, but also "life" smart. She taught people so much without even realizing it. She had a sense of community involvement, her hard work and determination and at times, even her stubbornness. She got things done, when she believed in something or

 Richard died in an auto accident in Ocala, FL. His obit says he was a son of Joe and Toni Greathouse of Ocala and Jerry and Jean Archer of Sandyville, which is confusing but seems to be repeated both in Joseph Greathouse's and Gerald L. Archer's obits. Richard's mother was Sharon Jean Bonnett, Gerald's second wife. Sharon b. 16 Apr 1951, Ripley, Jackson Co., WV, d. 19 Dec 1996 dau of Delmar Bonnett and Sylvia Harbin.
