History of Archertown?

Morrisville, PA

#1 Jul 8, 2008
Hello, I am a decendant of the Archer's from Archertown and Plumsted. We have traced it back 7 generations so far, plus it was known in the family before even starting geneology searches. I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction for finding out the history of the area and name. My Great-great-great Grandfather was a basket-weaver in Archertown, and it was passed down in the family that there is Native American blood, but I would like to know where the name came from, if there was an area there that was known for Native Americans, and if there's somewhere I can visit in town to get more information. Maybe even someone I can talk to at a historical society. I live near Absecon, NJ, and don't mind taking a day or overnite trip. It's worth it to me, and I'd like to see where my ancestor's lived. Thanks for any info! You can also email me at [email protected]

I'm still on the hunt...Hoping to understand the history behind the name and place. My Great-Grandpop Archer used to work in the forests, such as what is now Wharton State forest area and beyond, as a logger in the early 1900's for Bozarth lumber. If anyone has heard of that company, or the company in Egg Harbor City that made bone handles for knives I'd like to know about that too. I figured I'd put that down here too because you never know who you'll run into on the internet that might just have that plethora of information about old Central-South Jersey!
