Birth: 1830
Ohio, USA
Death: Feb. 11, 1865
Davidson County
Tennessee, USA

He was born anywhere from 1829 to 1833 to Nathan and Rebecca (Morris) Archer. He was baptized 7 Mar 1833, St. Mary's Catholic Church, Temperanceville, Belmont Co., OH. The 1830 Census shows that Nathan lived at Union, Monroe Co., Ohio. This is the likely birthplace of Henry. This area became Noble Co. in 1851. Residence per Census: Enoch, Noble Co., Ohio in 1860.

He married Emeline Hupp 23 May 1854, Noble Co., Ohio. They were the parents of five children: Eliza Jane Lanam, Margaret E. McLary; Mary Agnes Fleener; Rebecca McCoy; Hannah Sisson.

71st Ohio Volunteer Infantry - Company A history and widow's application show that he was a Private who was drafted Sept. 28, 1864. His service was for one year and he died Feb. 11, 1865 at a Union Army hospital in Nashville, TN of smallpox he contracted while in service.

Emeline is listed on the widow's Application No. 96971 on June 8, 1865, Certificate No. 60198. Another Application No. 165157 on Sept 12, 1869, Certificate No. 121558.

Emeline remarried on Feb. 6, 1868, Washington Co., Ohio to William W. Harshey. They are found on the 1870 Census living at Marietta, Washington Co., Ohio. Emeline apparently died before 1880; her burial place is likely in Brown Co., Indiana. Around 1875 William Harshey and the Archer daughters migrated to Brown Co., Indiana. See William W. Harshey's post #49470818. William was also a Civil War veteran.
