WILLIAM FLETCHER. One of the comfortable rural homes of Barry Township Pike County, is that of the subject of this sketch, who is one of the eldest native-born citizens of the township. He has, however, not yet passed middle age, having been born September 17, 1840. During his boyhood, deer and other species of wild game were still plentiful near his home and all the surroundings indicated the newness of the settlements. He attended the pioneer schools, the first to which he went being one and one-quarter miles from his home. As there was no road leading to it he followed a trail made by blazed trees.

The schoolhouse was built of logs and all its furniture was of the most primitive description. The scholars occupied benches made by splitting logs, hewing one side smooth, and inserting wooden pins for legs. A board laid on pins inserted in the walls in either side of the house served as a desk for the larger scholars to write on, and was the only article of the kind in the room. One of the early recollections of our subject is of a journey made by his parents to their old Kentucky home, to which they traveled with a team, taking their cooking utensils along and camping by the way. They were accompanied by their three children and he of whom we write enjoyed the trip as only a careless active child might.

Mr. Fletcher remained with his parents until his marriage, then bought the farm he now owns and occupies and established his own home. He had begun to assist his father in farm work at an early age and was therefore well acquainted with all that goes to make up a model farm. The marriage rites between himself and Miss Mary J. Boulware were celebrated June 17, 1861. Mrs. Fletcher is an estimable woman, devoted to the interest of her husband and children, kindly in her intercourse with her neighbors and rejoicing in the esteem of those about her. She is the mother of seven children - Vernon, Elida, Robert, Olive, Daniel, Charles and Pearl. Mr. Fletcher votes the Republican ticket. He is a reliable citizen, is well read and intelligent and possesses excellent habits.

The paternal grandfather of our subject was one of the early settlers in Montgomery County, Ky., where he located when the Indians were more numerous than the whites. He superintended the improvement and clearing of the farm, the labor being performed by the slaves whom he held. There his son Robert, father of our subject, was born and reared, remaining with his parents until he had reached years of maturity. He then came to Illinois, locating in Barry Township, Pike County, and buying a tract of timber land on section 5. He was very industrious, possessed of good judgment and so prospered in his worldly affairs. He purchased other land from time to time until at the time of his death he owned six hundred acres which is now divided among his heirs. He passed away in 1868, having lived to see the country around him develop from a wilderness into a well-settled region, the home of a wealthy community.

The mother of our subject was born in Spottsylvania County, Va., and bore the maiden name of Mary M. Boxley. Her father, William Boxley, was born in the Old Dominion and became a pioneer in Adams County, Ill. After improving a farm there he came to Pike County, where he improved another tract of land, afterward selling it and making his final location in Barry Township. The mother of our subject breathed her last on the homestead in March, 1886, having survived her husband some years. She had reared six children - William, Charles, Sarah, Henry, Roxy and Lois, all of whom are still living.

The mother of Mrs. Fletcher, Christina (Pullam) Boulware, was born near Mt. Carmel, Wabash County, this State, November 26, 1813. Her father, Thomas Pullam, was born in the Old Dominion and her grandfather, Benjamin Pullam was, so far as is known, a native of the same State. The latter removed to Kentucky in an early day, spending the remainder of his life there. Thomas Pullam was still a boy when the removal took place and he grew to manhood at the new home, whence he went to Indiana. In the Hoosier State he married Nancy Decker who was of German ancestry but born in Indiana.

Mr. Pullam removed to Illinois about 1815, being one of the early settlers of the Territory. In 1829 he journeyed from his former location to Pike County, driving his stock and bringing his household goods and family with a team and wagon. As was the common custom with travelers through a new country the little family camped by the way doing their own cooking. Mr. Pullam located in what is now Barry Township, there being then no villages where Barry or Pittsfield stand, and Atlas being the county seat. He bought a tract of land which included both prairie and timber, cleared and improved it and resided thereon until his death. His wife survived him a few years.

Miss Christina Pullam was in her sixteenth year when her parents came to Pike County, whither she accompanied them. Two years later she became the wife of Daniel Boulware, who was born in the Old Dominion, accompanied his parents to Missouri and thence came to this county about 1828. He located on a tract of land where he built a log cabin, splitting the puncheon for the floor and the boards for the roof, which was held in place by poles. The land belonged to a man in Massachusetts and after some years Mr. Boulware found him out and purchased the farm.

He made it his home some years, improving a large tract and erecting substantial frame buildings of various kinds. After rearing his family he moved into Barry, where he lived retired, until his death, July 31, 1885, at the age of eighty-one years. His good wife had learned to card, spin and weave, and used to make the cloth used in the family. She vividly recalls the time when that was the common custom of the housekeepers, and when various kinds of wild game supplied the tables of the pioneers. Mr. and Mrs. Boulware had nine sons and six daughters, twelve of the children being still alive. They were carefully reared by their estimable parents, whose earnest wish it was that they might become useful and honored members of society.

Note: Malinda is listed in 1910 census as having no children, but they have two nieces living with them. The assumption could be made that they adopted them (formally or informally). The implication of Vanus & Josephine being married would be that one is an in-law. This is consistent with the 1930 census, listing William & Malinda as the Great uncle in-law and Great aunt in-law of Vonus Call.

Also: Ninnus Hull (or Ninnius, as indexed) is the previous household. This would appear to be the nephew of Malinda, son of her brother Denton Hull.

Biography from Ours - Then and Now

Biography of J. C. Decker
(My Grandfather)

"Johannis C. Decker came to McDonough Co., Illinois in 1839 and located on section 29, Lamoine Township. He improved and cultivated his farm and now owns 320 acres of land, all in a state of good culture. 160 acres are situated on Section 21, and the remainder on Section 29. Mr. Decker was born in Ulster County, New York, on the 8th of October 1815 or 1813, and is the son of Cornelius J. and Gertrude (Bruyn) Decker, both natives of New York. Johannis received his education in the common schools of Ulster Co., and there remained until 1831, when he moved to Genesee Co., New York. He was there engaged in farming for about five years, when he came to Chicago, Illinois, and was there employed as one of the teamsters that helped remove the standing army from Fort Dearborn to Fort Howard, at the head of Green Bay. He was there engaged until the spring of 1839, when he went on horseback from Chicago to Augusta, Illinois and there located until 1839, when he came to his present location. Mr. Decker was united in marriage in June, 1839, with Elinor K. Yates, a daughter of Christopher E. and Catherine (Van Horn) Yates, both natives of Montgomery County, New York. They had twelve children -- Christopher, died young, Cornelius, Catherine, Anna M., Cornelia E., John, Augustus G., Albert A., Abraham Van Horn, Georgianna (dead), Edmond E., Christopher E. Mr. Decker has held the office of Justice of the Peace for this township for about five years, during the early settlement of the County. He has also been a member of the Methodist Epicscopal Church for a number of years."

He was killed near Quincy, Illinois in the spring of 1883 by a team running away with him. He was a native of New York State"
