Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Margaret Jane Faulkner {Gen 2}


It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.


(This one is a work in progress. I must confess, I have done very little research on Margaret Jane. Anyone with additional information, please contact me so we can collaborate.)


Margaret Jane Faulkner (Samuel, William) most likely youngest daughter of Samuel Faulkner and his wife Elinor. Her parentage can not be definitively proved at this point, but all evidence points to her being a daughter of this couple. Margaret was born around 1782 in Wallkill, then Ulster Co, New York.

Margaret Jane married Gabriel H Horton on December 9th 1802 at Grahams Church in Crawford, Orange Co, New York.

Margaret Jane Faulkner's children include:

  • Harrison Faulkner Horton b. 1804 d. 1883
  • Female 1 Horton b. 1806
  • Female 2 Horton b. 1809
  • Male 1 Horton b .1812
  • Male 2 Horton b. 1815
  • Female 3 Horton b. 1818
  • Male 3 Horton b. 1822


Margaret Jane Faulkner Horton died June 11th 1855. She is buried in the Bloomingburgh Rural Cemetery on the boundary of Orange and Sullivan counties, New York. Margaret Jane is buried with her husband Gabriel, two possible daughters (not proved yet), and her parents Samuel and Elinor.
