This is a biographic sketch of Archibald Robertson from History of Beaver County, Pennsylvania and Its Centennial Celebration, by Joseph Henderson Bausman, published 1904, page 230:
Hon. Archibald Robertson was born in County Tyrone, Ireland, March 5, 1805, and came to this country with his parents in 1812. He became interested in the Fallston paper mill in 1828-29. In 1829 he built a steam paper mill in what was then called Brighton, on the site now occupied by the freight station of the Pittsburg, Fort Wayne & Chicago Railway, in Beaver Falls.
This he operated successfully until 1849, when he built a paper mill to utilize the water power at the upper dam, then known as Adamsville, which he operated until 1864.
Politically, Senator Robertson was a Clay Whig and a Republican, representing his district in the Pennsylvania State Senate in 1851-52. He was made Collector of Internal Revenue for the Twenty-fourth District of Pennsylvania in 1866-69. Mr. Robertson died June 19, 1871.
