In Reply to: Henry McDonald Flecher, b. Ireland, d. Texas 1909? by Linde Lunney of 1172

Hi Linde,
I'm beginning to sound like a broken record.

The Lamar Co. UsGenWeb has a fabulous cemetery database. Your Henry Flecher is listed, buried near a Sallie Flecher, wife of "U.D.", who died quite young. According to the database, Henry dies in 1902 so he should be in the 1900 US Census.

I found in the Lamar USGenWeb Marriage database this:
Fletcher, Henry Mcd. 1881 Sallie A. Lowrance Lamar TX That explains why they are buried near the Lowrance's in the Shady Grove Cemetery.

Funny, I have some Lowrance's in my family from Lamar Co.

Family Search Record Search (either the old or new one) has the 1900 census online:
I couldn't find him, but maybe you will have better luck.

Do you mean you checked the 1880 US Census or the 1881 British Census? Because I did find him in Lamar Co in 1880. Of course, his name is misspelled.:

He's living with daughter, Jennie, 16, born in Ireland also.

Good luck!
