The Fletcher Family Tree

Updated April 8, 2002

About Our Family Research


This is a project/hobby that I began in the Winter of 2001 and now extends back 10 generations of Fletchers' to the lowlands of Scotland. Much of the material was extracted from a handwritten journal kept by Robert Fletcher (1765-1860). Robert, a shepard, was born and raised in Selkirkshire, Scotland. He married twice and was widowed twice. Together with his first wife, Helen Park, he raised 6 children. His second wife, Janet Black, died young and left Robert with 4 additional children to raise. Newly widowed and 65 years old, Robert immigrated to the USA in 1823. The Fletcher family home was eventually located in Andes, Delaware County, New York. Delaware County was home to many Scots from the lowlands. The journal covers the years 1811-1847. At the time of his death acording to the Delaware County Historical Record, Robert Fletcher, was one of the best read men of his time. His records of current events are very clear and valuable. He died at the homestead, one of the first settled farms in Andes, in 1860, at the age of 95.


Enjoy!!
