Thomas Fletcher, a native of Kentucky, was a veteran of the Civil War. He was a resident of West Point, Iowa, when he enlisted as a Private on 25 Oct 1861 at the age of 23 years. He was appointed Bugler on 27 Nov 1861 when he mustered in Co H 4th Iowa Cavalry. Thomas mustered out 4 Dec 1864 at Memphis, Tennessee when his term of enlistment expired.

At the conclusion of the war he crossed the plains and established himself in Eastern Oregon, where he went into stock and sheep raising.

On 4 Nov 1917 at the age of 76 years, Thomas was hit by an outband Gresham train near the Inman-Poulsen mill and was instantly killed. He was walking south beside the track in the same direction as the train. Just before the train reached him, he stepped in front of it and was knocked down before the train could be stopped. It is presumed that he did not hear the train approaching. He was survived by a wife and three children.
