I'm looking for all the info I can compile of the FLETCHER surname in colonial Virginia. I am a descendant of THOMAS FLETCHER born 1762 probably the Cabin Point area who migrated to Pittsylvania Co.,VA and lived on the state line between Halifax Co.,& Pittsylvania County Virginia dying there in 1838 with a will. We match 67 markers to 67 markers with the descendants of James Fletcher who died in 1733 first mentioned in Surry County records in 1711.
