This is an update to the post Fletcher Family Genealogy I, published on April 13, 2013. When I figure out how to link to the first post, I will do so here.
This is information I was able to gather from visiting the Wilson County, Tennessee area during the summer of 2013.
What I’m looking for is more information on Reziah Fletcher and Lavinia Pinkston.
Circumstantial evidence suggests that they married about 1853, probably in Coffee County, Tennessee.
I would like proof.
What I found this last summer was a reference in a book of Tennessee Marriages that a Rezi Fletcher had obtained a marriage license to marry Abigail Meyers in 1861 (February 22, to be exact).
Now this reference is on ancestry.com as well. It’s getting harder and harder to stay ahead of the curve. Before too much longer, it will be easier to research at home than to hit the road!
I knew Reziah and Lavinia had had four children, and Lavinia had died in 1861, when the children were very small. I also knew Reziah had remarried quickly to Abigail, and they had several children, as well.
What I am hoping to find is the hard link between Reziah and Lavinia, and then link Reziah to his father, Elijah Fletcher.
Please message me if you are researching these folks, as well.
