Archibald was born in Kentucky in 1794.He and his family came to Johnson County, Indiana, in October, 1822, from Nicholas County, Kentucky and settled in what was then the wilderness of northern Johnson County. At the first county election in 1823, he was chosen one of the Justices of the Peace. He was the first Justice of the Peace in White River Township.
He served as president of the first Board of Justices of the county.
He married Lydia Rhodes. They were enumerated in the 1850 U.S. Census in White River Township, Johnson, Indiana.
He passed away in Indiana in 1851.
There is a conflict as to the date of death. FindAGrave shows 28 Jun 1857. The newspaper article from 26 Jun 1948 gives May, 1857 as his date of death. The newspaper article is believed to be more accurate than the FindAGrave entry.
