I'm looking for info on Margaret Yoho who married Simon Archer. Although I'm quite clear on how she fits into the Yoho family, I have little else that is substantive on her and a few big questions!

-Is there a marriage record for this marriage?

-Regarding her son Jacob, some have him as deseased by 1809, yet he appears in some references I have to Peter Yoho's estate
that seem to date to the 1830s. I do not have copies of this material, but if anyone out there does, I'd be appreciative.

-Again, regarding Jacob. I might be a descendant of his and have several
death certificates with his name listed as father, Clay County Indiana. This is where
he is listed as living in the Peter Yoho estate reference. Also, this is where Margaret Yoho Archer's son Simon moved to as well. The Jacob Archer that I have death
certificates naming is the same Jacob Archer who married Abigail Morris in Butler Co OH- the same location and general time frame that Simon Archer remarried (Mary Gossett 1811) after the death of Margaret Yoho in Washington Co OH (abt 1808) and on the way westward towards Clay County Indiana for the Archer clan.

If anyone has any info, I have lots to share
on descendants of Margaret via son Simon, as well as this possible Jacob.

Thanks so much,
