Ernest Sievers Fletcher (New York)
« on: Monday 17 April 17 17:27 BST (UK) »
Ernest appears enlisting into the US Army.

He was born 17 April 1879 and married in 1906 in Liverpool to Mary Bearrie (sometimes as Mary Beattie).  They are not in the UK in 1911 and I can't see any children.

On his WW1 Draft Registration card he gives his date of birth as 17 April 1882.  He gives his residence as Orange, New York and his 'relative' as Mary Fletcher, suggesting they went to the US together.

On his WW2 Draft Registration card he gives his date of birth as 17 April 1886.  He gives his residence as Kings, New York and his 'relative' as Florence Fletcher.  He has a sister called Florence but she would have been Florence Makinson at that point so I am wondering if Florence was a second wife.

I'd be grateful for any information about his time in the US

Thanks

Ernest Sievers Fletcher is my Great-Uncle by Marriage he married my Great-Aunt his 2nd Wife Florence Ford on the 10th June 1937 in Manhattan New York.
He was a Soccer Player and he scored the winning goals in the semi-final and final matches of the American Cup tournament of 1909. 
I would be so grateful if any one has any more information regarding Ernest and Florence I have been able to collect some information I have seen a picture of Ernest from his Football days but we have none of Himself and Florence. I am trying also to put together pieces of Ernest and  Florences life and also after Ernest passed away.
If any one knows of any of his Family back in Liverpool England would be appreciated I do intend and hope to find out more myself.
Thank you
Lynette
