You didn't say what you needed on the Fletchers in Johnson Co, TX. Is this the family of Richard and Rebecca you wanted? And, next door is a Thomas Fletcher, looks like he could be a brother.

1880 census Stephens Co, TX:

Richard FLETCHER Self M Male W 36 MS Farmer SC SC

Ella FLETCHER Dau S Female W 12 MS At Home MS MS
Luthu FLETCHER Son S Male W 10 MS MS MS
Oscar FLETCHER Son S Male W 8 MS MS MS
Lula FLETCHER Dau S Female W 6 TX MS MS

They are on the 1870 census in Rankin Co, MS.
