Cotton Fletcher
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 2, 1729
Hampden County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Nov. 28, 1777
Berkshire County
Massachusetts, USA

Son of Ebenezer Fletcher and Hannah Morton.
Husband of Thankful Bartlett, whom he married on Sep 09, 1756 in Salisbury,Litchfield, CT, and with whom he had eleven children: Mollie, Samuel, Cotton, Grace, Silas, Hannah, Eunice, Issi, Lovicy, Amos and Calvin Fletcher.
Revolutionary War Patriot. He served in the Battle of Hubbardton (06 July 1777) with his older sons, and in the Battle of Bennington (on 17 Aug 1777).
On July 8, 1777, as Gen. Burgoyne's army advanced south, Thankful Fletcher (Cotton's wife) fled with their children from Poultney, VT, to Salisbury, CT. After the Battle of Bennington, a month later, it is possible that Cotton Fletcher was going to meet his family when he died in Sheffield. By 1779, widow Thankful and her children had returned to Poultney; and Cotton's estate was probated in Rutland County, Vermont.
