James Fletcher received a grant in March, 1779 for 400 acres on the south side of the Yadkin River near the Moravians lower line opposite an island below the mouth of Cub Creek. By 1787 he owned 2054 acres which included 1034 acres of "western land" and was the only Fletcher that appears on the tax list. James married Susannah (probably his second wife) about 1743. It is believed that James Fletcher was born about 1725 in Fauqueir County, Virginia.

Captain James Fletcher was one of five delegates elected to the Consititutional Convention in 1778 along with Col. Richard Allen, Col. William Lenoir, Captain John Brown and Captain John Herndon.

January 1792 - James Fletcher prays reimbursement for money advanced ($920) in January 1779 and March 1780 to Charles Gordon, Colonel of the Wilkes Regiment of Militia, for the purpose of securing supplies for drafts from the regiment to the aid of South Carolina.
