Notes for Eleanor Hindman:
Elinor Hindman was brought to this country from Ireland when she was a young child (deposition
of Agnes Harvey and Margaret McCutchen, dated 19 June 1795)

Eleanor was the daughter of James Hindman, and was the full and only sister of Rev. John
Hindman. He came to America in 1739 and found his sister married to John Fletcher Sr. He called
at the home of Providence Scot and inquired for the whereabouts of Eleanor Hindman, at the
request of his father. He then learned that she married John Fletcher Sr. (deposition of Edward
Partridge, dated 25 May 1749)

On Jan 1, 1739, (deposition of Providence Scott, dated 25 may 1749; as stated in the Chronicles
of the Scotch Irish Settlement in Virginia, vol. 2 p 432 by Lyman Chalkey...excerpts form court
records of Augusta and Rockbridge Co. in Va. ) he located Eleanor and informed Fletcher, who
met him at the door, "Your wife is my sister." At the time her father was still living in Londonderry
County, Ireland. Rev. John Hindman who was a Presbyterian minister, was sent by the
Philadelphia Synod to Augusta County, Virginia. He received a grant from Beverly in 1745. After
a long time in the courts, the Beverly grant went to his rightful heir, Eleanor and her husband, John
Fletcher Sr. After living in Chester County, Pennsylvania they moved to Augusta County, Virginia.

Two of Eleanor's friends, Edward Partridge, 1690 and Providence Scott, 1689 testified or gave
deposition in 1749 to prove relationship to Rev. John Hindman and Eleanor Hindman Fletcher.
