Fletcher’s Minstrels was a popular ensemble that played many regional venues in the late 19th and early 20th century, according to the Trenton Historical Society. While the documentary record on this group is thin, there are photographs of two of the members:  banjo player Annie Waldron and William Fletcher, who is referred to as a banjo prodigy in the photo captions. These pictures are from the Goshen County Farms  “Faces from the Past” page
