You are welcome Lynda 1, Josiah and Anne were also my G.G. Grandparents and Georges brother Edmund Fletcher was my Great Grandfather, I have done a fair amount of research on Edmunds side of the Fletcher family but can probably assist you to fill in some of the blanks in Georges history if required

Edmund and Margaret named two of their sons after your G.G.Grandfather George Fletcher, one died in infancy, b.1874 and d. 1875 and is buried with Edmund Fletcher at Jerilderie cemetery, the other son also name George, b.1876 d. 1916 was killed in 1916 when he fell off his horse and is buried with his mother Margaret Fletcher in Urana cemetery NSW

George Fletcher your grandfather owned a small holding in Jerilderie about the same time Edmund Fletcher was licensee of the Bunyup Hotel 4.kms West of Jerilderie...not sure why George left Jerilderie but we have visited George and Emily Fletchers two sons grave sites in outback WA.
1: Josiah George Fletcher is buried in Norseman WA
2: James Edmund Fletcher is buried in Kalgoorlie WA, I think both boys may have been prospectors.

Which one of the Fletcher girls was your G. Grandmother or was John William your G. Grandfather ?

I cant find out what happened to Anne- Bird- Fletcher- Hall but some research showed she died in 1871-2..and I don't know if she remarried after George Hall died as Anne seems to have disappeared not long after Edmund left for NSW and George Hall died...

I am currently researching the English and Irish side of our Fletcher family history but have travelled down a few dead end tracks but think I am on the right trail now... I look forward to hearing back from you ......edf

Edf.About George Fletcher's holding in Jerilderie.Could you tell me the year please .

Linda, I think your G.G. Grandfather George Fletcher was a Free Land Selector at Yanko... in the mid 1880's.this is listed in "A History of Jerilderie" and I believe many of these free selectors walked off the land and moved on

There was also another family of Fletchers (not related) who lived at a siding near Jerilderie and their son John, who is listed on the honour role in Jerilderie was sadly killed three weeks after arriving in France...

Edmund Fletcher:

On Tuesday afternoon last quite a shock
was created here when news was brought in
from Wooilpark, Wilson, that Mr. Edmund
Fletcher, an old identity of the district, had
died suddenly at his camp on the Yanko
Creek that morning at about half-past ten.
The messenger who had brought in the in-
telligence to the Coroner and the police also
brought in a wire from Mr. Win. Comans, of
Woodpark, to send to his family at Urana,
informing them of the sad event. Shortly
after the news was received here Constable
Doran went out to the camp and remained
with tho body till the arrival of the Coroner
and the Doctor. After taking some of the
evidence out at the camp, the inquiry was
adjourned till next day, and the body was
brought into Jerilderie. The funeral took
place on Thursday. As the deceased resided
many years in Jerilderie before removing to
Urana, he and his family were well known
here. He was highly respectcd by all who
knew him, and deep sympathy is expressed
with the bereaved relatives. He leaves a
large family — three sons and five daughters.
He was in his 63rd year at the time of his
