  • Notes 
    • After the death of his mother, Archibald lived a year or so with a kind old neighbor, Isacc Cogle, a Quaker, who had been very kind to his mother during her illness. Then he lived with a Scotchman, Samuel Clark, until the ratter (?) sold his farm and moved to Indiana. Archibald had his clothing packed to go with Mr. Clark, but his uncle, James Greenlee, would not allow him to go. He then went to live with William Workman and remained with him until he was 14 years old. Then he went to St. Clairesville and became an apprentice to learn the cabinet making trade. He remained there six years, and after finishing his trade, he went to Wheeling, WV and did masonry work for four months. His brother, William, had moved to Washington, Guernsey County, Ohio, and started a hat shop. Archibald went there and united with him in carrying on that trade. Archibald received some money from his father's estate and built a brick dwellling in which his brother lived, he boarding with him. They then bought a dry goods store and continued both that and the hat shop for some time until it was thought best to dissolve the partnership. William took the house and lot and Archibald took the store. He had, however, prior tothis time, started a hat shop in Norwich, Muskinum County, Ohio in connection with his cousin.
