I am posting this for Mr Archer per his request:
Please publish the full name and address and email address with my offer to
help researchers on Lincicome/Linthicome and ARCHER. My interest in the
Lincicomes (and variants) related to ARCHER is far broader than my
immediate Archer line.
(I need a bit of technical help)

Ancestry, Inc's new regime for consolidating all of its online resources'
login/passwords to a single pair in a centralized database does not work
implement the password/user ID consolidation.
Gateing posts from other Ancestry, Inc's resources is good in theory but
inhibits direct one-on-one exchanges because the email addresses are no
longer embedded in the text of the messages allegedly to avoid spammers
harvesting the addresses and to make ID/passwords uniform for all Ancestry
If anyone here would like to use the board's URL above and post this message
for me I'd appreciate it. Lizabeth can email me off list and we can cc: the
gist of the exchanges here.
George W. Archer
This is spectulative based on circumstantial information based on locations
and time frames of residence and on the possibility that the rarity of the
surname makes this kind of speculation a bit more productive in doing field
research. I've been doing Lincicome and Archer research for over 30 years
throughout North America.
I believe the possible parent for Eli and Basil may have been a Joseph
Lincicome who migrated before 1772 from Flavanna Co., VA to Frederick Co.,
MD and then ca. 1773 migrated to Washington (now Greene) Co., PA with my
ancestors Patrick Archer (c. 1717-1798). I can't account for all of
Joseph's children but one was a Nathan Archer whose mother was Jane
(Pellow?), who was widowed after the death of her husband, and she md. 2
James Archer c. 1747-c. 1832 (no children, despite oral history that she
was the mother of James' 8 known children).
Per a Washington Co., PA deed (Deeds Vol 1, pp 427-429, Nathan inherited his
father's estate in Greene Co., PA and on 1 Jun 1789, sold it to James
Archer before they all moved to Ohio Co (now Tyler Co., WV) VA ca. the
Nathan md. 1. Lydia Enochs and 2. Mary Siviers; Nathan d. 26 Feb
1845 in Monroe (now Noble Co., OH) and is buried in the Methodist Church
Cem, in Carlisle, Noble Co., OH.
Information on Joseph Lincicome is very sparce, probably killed in an
Indian raid in Greene Co., PA in the 1780's. I'll be doing more research on
the surname in Frederick Co., VA in June 2012.
Wherever Lincicome's appear in their migrations from the 1770's into the
20th Cent. in many states (WV, KS) in the U.S. there are almost always
Archers living in the same county, hence my interest in tracking
Lincicomes. Intermarriage with Archers occurred but sparingly over the same
time period. This line of Lincicomes is extremely long-lived, living well
into their 90's.
The spelling variations of the surname have complicated doing research.
In fact, the variants spawned two other mail lists with the variant
spellings that were consistently spelled in two parts of Colonial America.
I believe these two mail lists are now defunct: firstname.lastname@example.org
- John Sentell, listowner (2007)email@example.com
-Emma Cronin (?), list administrator (2005)
The surname is Welch and the glottal stop sound when prnouncing the "nc" or
"nth" in the name has spawned phonetic variants when written.
The word origin of the surname deals with running water near a waterfall,
rapids or a convergence of watercourses, and since the Welch are very
musical, the surname may be a verbal word picture that emmulates the sound
of running water itself in Welch. Welch speakers encouraged to comment.
The Mother Lode of the surnme is in Anne Arundel Co., MD in the mid 1600's
where Thomas Linscomb was the first arrival. The family owned a line of
ships sailing between Liverpool, England and Baltimore Md, were quite
wealthy and amassed a great deal of real estate in the county. My attempts
to find a genealogical link between the Joseph Lincicome above and this
line havs not been successful.
For the benefit of those working with records that are not Soundex coded,
here is a list of all known variants (41) of Lincicome/Linthicome (the
usual spellings for the SE Ohio area).
Using Soundex searches should get around most of the variant spellings:
