Censuses indicate Archibald was born between 1770 and 1780,
The following may be this Archer witnessing a deed of his father's. If so he had to be at least age 14 or born by 1778. Could also be his uncle of the same name, particularly given the location on the upper Double Creek and the neighbors named.

14 Nov 1849. Iverson B. Walters was appointed postmaster for Ringgold, Pittsylvania Co VA.
1850 Census. Pittsylvania Co VA
An Iverson J. Walters, age 35, manufacturer, b. VA, was living in the household of Thomas J. Shelton. There were five single men living together - possibly a small rooming house. The age is wrong, but Iverson likely did not give the information.
There is an E. Walters, 70 year old female, b. VA, in Caswell in 1860. Living with her was Thomas Turner, age 33.
Probably this is Elizabeth, stepmother of Iverson. I have no information about her death.
The household just previous was I. B. Walters, age 40, b. NC, a single man. I'm sure this would be Archibald's son and Elizabeth's stepson, Iverson - he did not marry until 1861.
Iverson B. Walters married Emily Griffeth, 26 Dec 1861, Rockingham Co NC.
