In an earlier posting I stated that Joseph Fletcher was probably the father of Elizabeth Fletcher who married William Lockhart. Well, that is incorrect. Elizabeth’s father was John Fletcher. The following information comes from research done by a Fletcher cousin, Patty Black. Marriages of Patrick County, Virginia, 1791-1850, Lela C. Adams Southern Historical Press, Jan 1, 1984 Elizabeth Fletcher married William Lockhart, daughter of John Fletcher. Surety, John Fletcher and witnessed by George Penn. Dated 2-21-1792. “Apparently John Fletcher was married first to a lady, whose name is unknown, then to Mirram Parr and then Lillyann Russell……. ”it looks as if your Elizabeth was from the unknown marriage. My own line, apparently, came from the unknown line. I don't even have a first name.” Elizabeth Fletcher and William Lockhart are my 3rd great grandparents. This makes John Fletcher and his unknown wife my 4th great grandparents.
