I am looking for information on a William Archie who lived in TN and was married to Emiline Roarke. They had at least two children, Mattie and Sarah. Mattie is my g-grandmother. Mattie married William Wesley Jarrett in TN. Sarah married George Denton and lived in West TN in Obion Co. If these are your Archies, please contact me. Thank you.

I believe there must be a connection to your Archie's and mine. William Archie was born in TN about 1822, married Emeline Roarke in Sumner Co in 1854 in Gallatin. Could John Archie be William's brother? I have seen the names your mentioned but I could not connect them to William Archie. I have traced the Archie family in Sumner, Trousdale, Wilson and Davidson Co. Do you know if William Archie is buried in Obion Co,?The 1910 cenus shows Emeline being widowed and living with her daughter Sarah Archie Denton in Obion Co. Mattie Archie was either half or full Cherokee? Do you know anything about the Cherokee roots? Thanks for your response. I look forward to hearing from you again.

My name: David Archie. Father: Charles E. Archie, grandfather: James Elzie Archie, great-grandfather James Ellis Archie who was the son of a William Archie and Emeline Roark Archie. Recently found William's name on Same couple (Emeline and William), married in Gallatin, TN. Would like to trace William, if possible. Interesting side note: thought I was part Native American on Archie side of family. I submitted DNA to 23andMe and also to FamilyTreeDNA. I have no Native American (Indian) DNA on my father's side of family but on both 23andMe and FamilyTreeDNA, I am shown as 2.6% African (west Africa) on father's (Archie) side of family tree. Could be and probably any oral history of "Indian/Native American" roots are actually African, family history substituting red/brown for black/mulatto. Any further leads on William?
