I am researching for a man who has had a stroke and cannot do it on his own. His ancestor lived in Archbald Twp., Lackawanna Co.,PA. I found his ancestor, Christopher Miller, in 1880 there. But, Christopher would be a child in the 1870 census and I would need to find him in Luzerne County in 1870. I can't seem to find a Archbald Twp. in Luzerne Co in 1870. Does anyone know what township name I need to be looking for in Luzerne in 1870 which later, in 1878, became Archbald now in newly formed Lackawanna County? Any help you can give me on this I would appreciate. Thanks.
