Family Genealogy
Tuesday, February 13, 2007
 

One of the things that I have found interesting is the number of times some of my ancestors have moved during their lifetime. One example is Lester B. Archer who is one of my ggg-grandfathers. He was born in New York, grew up and got married in Medina County, Ohio. In the 1860's he and his wife and family moved to Polk County, Iowa. After several years there they moved to Adair County, Iowa. For the next several decades he moved multiple time back and forth from Adair County to Cass County and from one township to another. In between their were periods of time when the family lived in Kansas and Nebraska. After his death his wife, Lucinda, who was also born in New York and grew up in Lorain County, Ohio even spent time living in Oklahoma with her daughter and family. The picture shows Lester, Lucinda, and two of their sons in the 1885 Nebraska census. I am sure the S.B. Archer is a mistake and it should actually be L.B. Archer. At this time their daughter and her family were also living in Nebraska.
