The Indexed work contains a chapter on the author's paternal line that migrated to Morgan and Noble Cos., OH from Massachusetts and Maine. Donald Darwin Fowler, son of Lemuel and Nancy (JORDAN) FOWER. Lemuel was son of Lemuel and Sarah (SWEATT) Fowler. The HUTCHINS family of Morgan Co. is also discussed below. [Please go here for the INDEX] Please download it from there and don't ask me for a copy. The Library of Congress has the book. See above for call number. It is copyrighted so L.C. will not film it for you. The Fowler material in the book is covered by pp. 128-140 and the Hutchins information is pp. 134-135. There are photos of Deobrah Hutchins, wife of Lemuel Fowler (b. 1815) and Lemuel Fowler (b. 1848) and wife, Nancy Jordan and later generations of Fowlers.

If anyone is interested in the following contact me and I can provide the pages involved. The Archer family in the title is NOT related to the the Archers in the SE Ohio area, of which I am a descendant. More information on these Archers is available from me as well, but you must provide details (names,dates,places and in-law relationships with same data) for me to do an adqueate search and to put you in touch with others doing research on the line.

I have run an ARCHER surname clearinghouse for the last 25 years.
