Born in Tennessee in 1809, Jennie Brown married Isaac Archer about 1829. They had four children in Tennessee, then moved to Platte County, Missouri about 1838, where their remaining five children were born.
Jennie and Isaac farmed in Platte County into the 1860s. Some of their children moved into the recently opened Kansas Territory in the mid-1850s, probably with slave-state sympathies. Isaac Archer was listed as a slave owner, owning an elderly female slave as a domestic servant.
When the Civil War came, Jennie's husband and at least one of her sons joined the cause of the Confederacy, both joining Company "I" of the First Regiment Missouri Cavalry. Isaac served as a Confederate soldier for one year, and then returned home. There is some evidence that two more sons joined up with a band of Missouri guerrillas.
Jennie and Isaac sold their property in Platte County in 1866 and moved to Cass County, Missouri about that time, and Jennie died there in 1869. Isaac followed two of their sons to Texas, where he died in 1874.
My thanks to Richard Parker for having created this memorial, and to Scott Turner for helping me find the grave and for adding the photograph of Jennie's grave.
