According to his birth certificate,the Tommy Jones (James Fletcher) I refer to was born on the 3rd July 1884 on "Bolivia Station" at Tenterfield. He was my mothers grandfather but she never knew him and he wasn't spoken about within the family. My mother says that her father (James son William, known as Bill) sometimes would take her to carnivals and her father would hang around the boxing tents looking for his father, so he must have had some knowledge of his fathers occupation.We know that around 1920 he had something to do with Jimmy Sharmans boxing troupe in the Riverina area NSW. After that he seems to have vanished.
