|Birth: ||Apr. 13, 1814, USA|
|Death: ||Oct. 26, 1898|
Maiden name not positively known to this contributor at this time; using family group sheet information compiled by a Millie Shaner in April 1981 and submitted to the Jefferson county genealogy society family group sheet collection, Fairfield, Iowa (in the Fairfield Public Library).
That said, a biography posted for a son, Benjamin F Archibald as a flower message on his memorial uses "Duncan" as his mother's maiden name. So family researchers might consider that to explore if desired.
Evidently a second wife of Benjamin Archibald; marriage date not known or location known at this time to this contributor.
Any further family information would be greatly appreciated, as well as any headstone photos (if possible) for Benjamin and Elizabeth.
Caution: It is possible that Isaac Archibald was actually the biological son of Benjamin Archibald and his first wife Nancy Hall Archibald, who reportedly but not proven to have died in 1837, when Isaac would have been about a year old. The death record for Isaac reportedly lists Benjamin and Nancy as his parents; Elizabeth may have married Benjamin and thus raised Isaac as her own, which would account for her mention in Isaac's obituary as his mother.
Oh what a tangled web we weave...
