The son of Adam & Mary (Alver) Fletcher, in 1850 he lived with his family in West Donegal Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He married Catherine "Katie" Hein December 3, 1857, in Elizabethtown, Lancaster County, and fathered Emaline (b. 04/25/58 - married a Johnson), Mary Ann (b. 12/??/59, d. 1860), Abraham (b. 12/22/60), Elizabeth (b. 1865, d. 1870), Henry (b. 1868, d. 1870), John (b. 1870), Catherine (b. 08/12/72 - married a Yingst), and Franklin Hein (b. 07/20/75). By 1860 or thereabout, he was a farm laborer presumably living in Silver Spring Township, Cumberland County, although he is not found in that census.

A Civil War veteran, he was drafted in Carlisle October 16, 1862, mustered into federal service at Chambersburg November 1 as a private with Co. A, 158th Pennsylvania Infantry (aka "Drafted Militia"), and honorably discharged with his company August 12, 1863.

In 1870, he lived in Mechanicsburg, Cumberland County, but moved back to Maytown, Lancaster County, the following year, dying in East Donegal Township from the effects of "diabetes."
