Note on Husband: Thomas Dean FLETCHER

Hi Graham

Thanks for the extra info, Mum thinks that her uncle Tom may have gone to an Orphanage as a boarder & I didnt know where to start looking.

No wonder you have so much, I'm a mere beginner.

Would you be able to put me in touch with Dorothys' sisters descendent? She might be able to fill in a gap or 2. If not, can I send a couple of questions via you?

Thomas Henry Fletcher (my Great Grandfather) married Jessie Tubbs in the last quarter of 1891, it was a joint marriage with his sister Alice. Jessie gave birth to my Grandmother, Ethel Beatrice Fletcher in 1893. Then in 1896 she gave birth to Thomas Dean Fletcher. Unfortunately, she died in childbirth aged 25, her husband was 30. He went to live with his brother Robert & his family. Rose Fletcher, Robert's wife, helped to bring up the children as well as her own. When Thomas married Dorothy the witnesses were Rose & her son Horace. My Gran married George Edward Charlton & they had my Mum, Thelma Rosalind. I dont know any more about Tom & Dorothy. I'll give you some stuff on the earlier Fletchers next time I write.

Cheers

Chrissie
