      Pg.521-522: JOHN FLETCHER is one of the solid, substantial and trustworthy residents of Elwood Twp. He was born in Clinton Co. OH on May 20, 1815. His father, Henry, was a native of England, and a son of John Fletcher, who in turn was a son of Henry Fletcher. The latter was a wealthy officer in the English army and educated his son John -- the grandfather of the subject of this sketch -- for the army, but he joined the Quaker Church,, and was driven by his father to Ireland, where he was given 60 acres of land in that country. His son, Henry Fletcher, father of our subject, was obliged to leave Ireland or join the army, but being a Quaker, he refused to become a soldier and came to America, locating in Philadelphia. This was in 1793. He was on the ocean ... The father of the subject of this sketch, after landing, lived 3 years in Philadelphia, and in 1796 he emigrated to the Sciota Valley, OH, where he worked on a farm for one season, returning to PA and there remaining until 1804, when he went to Warren Co. OH and dug a mill race on Caesar Creek. He bought 200 acres of military land in Clinton Co. OH and then retraced his steps to PA, remaining there until 1806, when he returned to OH and improved his land. The Indians were numerous but peaceable, in the main.
            In 1806, the father of the one of whom we write this sketch, married Mrs. Sarah (Duncan) Taylor. They had four children of whom John is the youngest, and only one living. The others were: Mary, Hannah and Sarah. The sisters all lived to be over 70 years of age. John Fletcher came with his parents to this county in the fall of 1836, settling on the old homestead, where he now lives. He was married in Oct. 1836 to Rachael Ruth. They had 7 children, six of whom are living: Sarah J., Henry, Mary A., John W., Amanda and James. One son, William, died in his 23rd year. Mrs. Fletcher died Oct. 5, 1862 and her husband was again married on Nov. 1st, 1866, to Mrs. Lydia Haworth, widow of Eli Haworth, and dau. of Garrett Dillon, the latter a pioneer of Elwood Twp, and a native of Greene Co. TN. (MAD: more on Dillon family and Haworth children) The grandfather of Mr. Fletcher on his mother's side, Samuel Duncan, was a soldier in the Rev. War and participated in the battle of the Cowpens and others. He had holes shot in his clothes and buttons taken off by bullets, but was not wounded. He was known as the "fighting Quaker," and he sustained his reputation well. He was a teamster, and the Tories captured three of his horses, when he mounted the remaining one, and joined the American forces, afterward recapturing one of his horses. (more on descendants of John Fletcher, subject of the sketch) (MAD: Sarah was the daughter of Amos Duncan who was the son of Samuel Duncan & wife Sarah; Newberry & Edgefield Co. SC.)
