Charles Jefferson Fletcher and
Mary Elizabeth (Mollie) Davis
Limestone, Bandera, Uvalde County, Texas






      Charlie and Mollie were married 9-15-1904, Bandera Co TX. He was barely 19 and she not quiet 18. Aunt Mollie had 6 children and lost 3 children as infants. It was tragic when Charlie died suddenly in the spring of 1914 leaving Mollie with 3 young sons. They were married less than 10 years when Charlie was stricken with an acute illness. (Death Cert: cause of death urimic poison) Family said, it could have been appendicitis or 'brites disease'. Charley is buried near his parents in the Jones Cemetery north of Utopia, TX.
      There are 4 Fletcher stones: Charles J. Fletcher 1885\1914; Isaac N. Fletcher 1850\1913; Virginia 1853\1939; Theddosia 1880\1906. (I feel sure Isaac's middle name was Newton. SRC)
