The obits below came from the URL: http://newsandsentinel.com/page/content and then clicking on Obituaries.
 Then use the search engine there for Archer (case insensitive) for updates from after July 24, 2013 when the obits below were collected.

 
 I have annotated the Archer persons named in the obituaries and have between 4 and 7 generations of information on those Archer lines from my
 One Name Study collection of 40 years. I have more data and can be contacted at:
 
 George Archer

 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

 Florence Ann Archer-DiGangi, daughter of the late Lawrence and Freda Archer, passed away Feb. 10, 2012, after a brief illness.
 
 She was born Aug. 12, 1930, in Sistersville, W.Va., where she graduated from Sistersville High School in 1949.
 
 Flo, as she was known, loved children, and worked for the Tyler County Head Start, then later volunteered for the Wood County Schools' "Grandmas" program. For years, she operated Cosmo's Restaurant in Sistersville, which later expanded to St. Marys. She was very supportive of her children and grandchildren, volunteering with the PTA, as a 4-H mom, working the time
 clock in basketball games, and serving as the vice president of the Big Red Band Boosters.
 
 Much of her later life was spent working in retail at various establishments throughout Grand Central Mall, then Gabriel Brothers in Parkersburg. She loved traveling with friends and family, frequently touring attractions in the region such as Amish Country and Dollywood, as well as embarking on a Caribbean cruise with her daughter and granddaughter and often visiting her family in Connecticut and Florida.
 
 In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her brother, Larry Archer; and sister, Donna Williamson.
 
 She is survived by her daughters, Therese Auler and Monica Knight; grandchildren, Joshua Leach, Matthew Simmons, Rachael Bolander, Zachary Knight, Mariaha Knight, and Hannah Knight; as well as eight great-grandchildren.
 
 Flo was adamant that her life not be grieved over, and that she would rather have had flowers while she could enjoy them. Therefore, a private memorial service will be held for the family, and we ask that donations be made to your local Head Start program.
 
 Florence opted for cremation, and has asked that her remains be committed to the ocean which she loved so much.
