I have not been able to unambiguously identify John in online records.
He was possibly John Fletcher born 6 May 1821 at Bardsey, Yorkshire, to parents Benjamin, a blacksmith, and Jane, who went on to be a Congregational Minister between 1854 and 1863.
He died on 26 October 1863 at Halifax, Yorkshire.
Can anyone confirms this or otherwise point me in the right direction?
