According to a feature story in the Jellico, TN Advance Sentinel date d May 6, 1992 and titled: "Archer-Douglas Families Studied", James L. Archer was an early settler in northern Campbell County, moving to the Hoot Owl Hollow area on a Kentucky land grant. Before 1830, Kentucky claimed land south of the current state line (Tennessee) and many landgrants, some as far south as Stinking Creek and 'the narrows' were issued by that state. The article goes on to say that James and Nancy had at least two sons that served with Union Forces in the Civil War. Although James owned five slaves, he was in favor of the Union cause. A large muster site called 'Camp Pine Knot' was established on a knoll of Pine Mountain on his property. When he died in 1862, he was buried in the family cemetery at the site of the soldier's camp. The children of James L. Archer and the offspring of another early settler, Mathew Douglas, became a long association that still liinks the two families. The article continues saying that a local landmark was named to honor James Archer. The highest point on Pine Mountain, above Hoot Owl Hollow, is called 'Archers'.
