Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Frances Ann "Fanny" Faulkner {Gen 3}




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

Frances Ann "Fanny" Faulkner (James, Samuel, William) was born in Wallkill, Orange Co, New York, sometime in 1816/17, to parents Col James Faulkner and his wife Martha McBride.

Fannie married Joseph C Watkins about 1843 in Jackson County, Michigan.

The couple had one son:

  • FNU Watkins b. about 1844/45

Frances Ann Faulkner had come to Grass Lake, Jackson Co, MI with her parents and siblings in 1834. I am uncertain when Joseph Watkins came to Michigan, however he did receive a patent for land in 1837. He may be the J C Watkins found in later censuses in neighboring Ingham County. If this is the same man, he remarried in December of 1845 and died in 1870. I have been unable to find any more information on the son, perhaps he died before the 1850 census, perhaps he was raised by other family members. 

from Find A Grave
Frances 'Fanny' Ann Faulkner Watkins died April 20th 1845 at the tender age of 29. She left behind a grieving family, including husband and young son. Fanny Ann is buried in Grass Lake East Cemetery with most of the rest of the Faulkner family.

The rest of the story remains a mystery. I'd really like to find out what happened to the young son.

Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Mary Jane Faulkner {Gen 3}


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

Mary Jane Faulkner (James, Samuel, William) was born in Wallkill, Orange Co, New York , January 11th 1814, to parents Col James Faulkner and his wife Martha McBride.

Mary Jane married widower Josiah Robinson Sloat, Sr (b. 1805 d. 1862) on April 5th 1842 in Jackson, Michigan.

The couple had at least five children together:

  • Mary Emaline Sloat b. 5 May 1843 d. 5 Sep 1923 m. Abel N Howe
  • Fannie A Sloat b. June 1844 d. 1933 m. Milo T Carpenter
  • Martha Sloat b. 10 Feb 1847 d. 19 Jan 1935 m. Charles L Becker
  • Josiah R Sloat Jr b. 1849 d. 24 May 1918 m. Harriett C Smith
  • DeEtte "Sarah" Sloat b. 1852 d. 13 Nov 1885 never married
Mary Jane was also step mother to Charles A Sloat, Josiah's son by his first marriage.


Mary Jane Faulkner had come to Grass Lake, Jackson Co, MI with her parents and siblings in 1834. Josiah Sloat had come to Sharon Twp, Washtenaw Co, MI in 1831 with his parents and siblings. Both families were originally from Orange Co, New York. The proximity of the family farms was close, Grass Lake road today runs right into Sharon Twp. 

Mary Jane Faulkner was Presbyterian and may have met Josiah in church, or may have met him in town, her father owning the first hotel in the county.

From Find A Grave

Mary Jane Faulkner Sloat died April 21st 1902 at the advanced age of 88 years. She is buried in Sharon Township Cemetery in Washtenaw County, MI. Her husband Josiah Sloat died March 5th 1862, his burial is unknown.

Notes From My Grandmother | Bass Lineage and Genealogy


Somehow, much of my grandmother's hand written and (badly) typed notes and research wound up in my possession. Traveling from Chicago to Los Angeles and back to Chicago again. It sat, in the dark of my mother's closet, until my dad passed and my mom decided to begin her great purge. Knowing I had picked up the torch, the next generation to pursue the Greatest Hobby on Earth, the papers came to live with me. Unsure for many years on just what to do with them, I have decided to bring them out and share them with you - transcribed, of course - no one can read my grandmother's handwriting! But in her own words; mistakes, rambling sentences, and all. I think she will be pleased her work and her writing are once again out in the light.


Bass Family Lineage and Genealogy .....

Grandma didn't know much about the Basses, I still don't. I wrote several posts (here) (here) and (here) about what I know. She was able to put together a spotty genealogy and a few facts, which I now present.

Robert Bass - - born in Boone County, KY, May 9, 1827. His father William L Bass, born in KY and married Margaret Roberts, who was born in KY in 1803. They moved to Bartholomew County, IN. In 1843 came to IA to Van Buren County and to Mahaska County in 1845. W L Bass died in 1885 - - his wife in 1883 - - both more than 80 years old.

Robert Bass was the oldest of the family of six sons and three daughters. He came to IA when he was 17 years. He was married to Mary Ann Roberts. He married Martha J Algood on July 4, 1865 after his first wife died. Martha was born in Montgomery County, IN and was a daughter of John L Algood, one of the earliest settlers of the state of IA, arriving about 1847. Children by the first marriage; Rosa (Mrs W E Stringer), John A Bass - - farmer of Pratt County, KS. By second marriage; Mary B (Mrs W E Moore), Charles, Frank, Nellie (died at 10 mos), R W - - druggist, Monong County, Agnes (Mrs Frank Bacon), Paul T.

Robert Bass was a justice of the peace for several years. Twp trustee, member of school board.

Rowley Family Story con't ....
More on assorted Rowleys ~ bio, obituary


Mrs R C Rowley died in Brooks, Iowa, December 10th 1890 at the age of 72 years, 8 months, 24 days. Mother Rowley had been an invalid for many years, but always bore her sufferings with Christian fortitude and uncomplainingly. The last few days of her life she seemed entirely free from pain, complaining only of being "so tired" and died as if falling asleep. Her last words were "come, Jesus, come". A loving wife and mother, and a faithful Christian, she has gone to her glorious reward.

Rhoda A was born in Terre Haute, Indiana, March 4th 1818; was married to Rev R C Rowley at Green Castle, Indiana September 29, 1840, moving to Illinois in 1848; and to Brooks, Iowa, in 1876, where she died. To these parents were born five children, two sons and three daughters; three only now survive to mourn the loss of mother and truest friend.

Mrs Rowley had been a great sufferer for many years. Often during this time had her life been despaired of by physicians and friends, but heroic courage combined with Christian submission to the will of the Master, served to pilot her through these years of suffering until the final summons came.

Children -

  • Flora Dell Rowley (Twining)
  • Anna Elizabeth Rowley (Wilcox) June 26, 1845 - ? (194-)
  • Marcellus Melville Rowley Feb 12th 1842 - Jan 1810 *  
*Married Drucilla Criss August 22nd 1862 (8 children) In August 1862 he enlisted in 83d Ill. Vol. Inf. as a member of Co. A. The following spring he was sent home on furlough on account of sickness and remained at home until the fore part of June, when he again reported to his company for duty. In Aug he was again taken sick and sent to the hospital and in the fall of 1863 was discharged from from the services on account of disability. He was a faithful member of the Presbyterian church and always took an active part in both Sunday school and Church work.

Mrs J L Twining dies 12/13/32.

Flora Dell Rowley was born in Peoria, Illinois, Nov 12, 1857, the daughter of a pioneer Presbyterian minster, Rev R C Rowley and his wife, Rhoda Ann. She spent all of her girlhood in Illinois, moving to Brooks, Iowa, when she was 18 years of age. She was married to Jesse L Twining on October 25, 1876, Mr and Mrs Twining making their home in Corning, Iowa, for fifty years. To this union were born four children; three daughters, Mrs I A Potwin of Des Moines, Iowa, with whom she has made her home for the past six years, Mrs E E Williams, deceased, and Mrs J E Hydeman of Piqua, Ohio, and one son, M C Twining of Des Moines. She is also survived by her husband, J L Twining, Des Moines, one sister, Mrs A E Wilcox, of Kansas City, nine grandchildren; also five great grandchildren; two nieces and three nephew.

Mrs Twining has often remarked that she had belonged to the Presbyterian church so long that she could not remember when she joined, going with her father as a very small child and sitting in a big chair in the pulpit beside him. Blessed with a wonderful mind she was always very active ans especially interested in young people. Mrs Twining was very active during middle life in church and club work, being blessed with a beautiful voice and musical talent, she took an active part in church music. A happy bright disposition endeared her to all who knew and loved her.

She passed away after three week's illness of pneumonia, at the home of her daughter, Mrs Potwin, in Des Moines, Tuesday, December 13, 1932, at 9:20 pm at the age of 75 years, 1 month, 1 day. Mrs Twining was the youngest child of a family of six. Her life was one long period of service. For years she looked after her invalid mother. Later she cared for Mr Twining's father and mother during the last years of their lives. She also cared for Father Rowley until his death in 1912.
