Son of Richard Tanner Archer and Mary Chastain Cocke. He was born at "The Lodge" in Amelia County, Virginia. He married Ann Maria Barnes, by whom he had 16 children, 9 of whom lived to maturity. A physician, he moved to the area of Port Gibson, Mississippi, and built a home, "Anchuca" in Claiborne County, to which his widowed mother came to live also. The Virginia Historical Society has a daguerreotype of "Anchuca" a well as his medical chest and contents. He is said to have been ruined financially by the Civil War, but returned to Virginia and bought "Woodland", built by his maternal grandfather, from his Uncle James Powell Cocke."
