I have been trying to follow my family name back as far as I can, but I have gotten stuck on my Great-Great Grandfather Archie Smith. I can't find any information on him except what I've been told by family members.
Archie was born about 1884 in New York. He was married to a Myrtie who was also born around the same time in New York.
Together they had three children: Anna, Shirley, and my Great-Grandfather Walter Turner Smith.
I assume Archie is a nickname and Myrtie as well. I would like to find out who his parents were, along with Myrtie's last name. It has also been said within the family that Archie was possibly adopted. Though, that maybe most likely false.
I would appreciate any info anyone might have.
