Pages 722 & 723

DAVID S. FLETCHER was born November 30, 1850, in Huntington County, Indiana, and is the son of George and Jane E. (Binkley) Fletcher, the former a native of Virginia, the latter of Ohio. The father died at Lancaster, Indiana, in 1865, he was by trade a potter, and a Republican politically. His widow resides in Huntington County, aged sixty-six, a member of the German Baptist Church. Both parents were of German descent.

David S. had poor school advantages. His father's death necessitating help at home, he worked at farming until he was eighteen, when he served three years to farm implement making and general blacksmithing, after which he commenced for himself at Van Buren, Indiana. He was in partnership with Elisha Ford, the firm being Ford and Fletcher. After several years, Mr. Fletcher sold to Mr. Ford and went into business at Marion, Indiana, and subsequently at Kentland, where he has been for ten years. They are now having a run on the Gopher Plow, and have built more than 250, which have been sent to different points in Indiana and Illinois, the demand having exceeded the supply.

May 6, 1864, Mr. Fletcher married Miss Elizabeth C., daughter of John H. and Catharine Hoober. These parents have two children -- Cloyd H., and Myrtle V. Mrs. Fletcher belongs to the Methodist Episcopal Church. Mr. Fletcher is a member of Damon Lodge, K. of P., No. 72, also of No. 396, I.O.O.F., Kentland.
