One comment on “Fourteen-year-old John Fletcher died this week in June of 1852 and was buried at Bethel Burying Ground

  1. Waiting tables at 14? That was a lot younger then than 14 now. And working on a boat, maybe unable to swim if he falls? A vulnerable child– no doubt just doing what he had to do. For the sake of his family. I want to read these stories but I don’t usually like them.
