I can tell you just about anything you might want to know about this family. Original settler was Jacob Fletcher of Taneytown, MD; arrived Bedford Co., PA in 1793 w/ wife and 10 children. I am descended from middle son John (1774-1860, 3rd gr-grandfather). They intermarried with many early Monroe/Providence/Southampton Twp families, including Weimer, Means, Barkman, Snyder, Diehl, O'Neal, etc. I can answer your query at

Hi, I saw your postings and wondered if you had any information on my ggrandparents. I don't have much information. Elisabeth Magner was born in 1868 and died in 1915. I don't know where, but believe in the Philadelphia area. I don't have anything about Davis Fletcher whom she married and had several children including my grandmother whose name was Elisabeth Veronica Fletcher b02/08/1894 and d11/14/66 married to Robert Patterson Morris in 1913. I don't have much on him either other than he was a philadelphia fire chief. They lived in philadelphia on Elfreths alley near Betsy Ross's home site. My mother was one of the 11 children that they had. If you have any information or ideas of where I could search please contact me. Thanks for your time and help. Sincerely, Margie

My John Fletcher and relatives left Bedford Cty, PA in 1791 for Hamilton Cty, Ohio (now Cincinnati). I don't know where he came from, Bedford Cty may have been just a departure place. I have been told he may have been a Fletzer/Flotzer. He married Phoebe Bickel b. in Sussex, NJ. the Bickels also went to Ohio w/Fletchers and several other families. Could my line connect with any of yours? Please email me

Classification: Query
My ggg-uncle, Patrick Sullian married a Margaret Magner in Philadelphia in 1887. Patrick's sister, Polly Bolger, was my ggggrandmother and lived on Elfreth's Alley. I believe the Magners lived on or near Elfreth's, which is likely how Patrick and Margaret met. Margaret and Elisabeth were probably sisters.
