Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Sarah Ann Faulkner {Gen 4}

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

Sarah Ann Faulkner (Thomas E, Joseph, James, William) was born in Orange Co, New York, about 1829, to parents Thomas E Faulkner and Susan Van Voorhis (Voorhees).

Sarah married (1) Isaac McCord (1819-1866) about 1850 most likely in Orange Co, New York. Sarah married (2) Charles Manson (1828-UNK) November 18th 1875 in Manhattan, New York.

Sarah and Isaac had at least five children:

  • Susan Adelia McCord b. Jan 1852 d. 3 Apr 1852
  • William N McCord b. abt 1853 d. UNK
  • James I McCord b. abt 1855 d. UNK m. Susan F Brinkerhoff
  • John McCord b. abt 1861 d. UNK
  • George McCord b. abt 1864 d. UNK

Not much is known about Sarah Ann Faulkner or Isaac McCord. The records are few and far between, and some are confusing. Isaac McCord was a tavern and hotel owner in Montgomery, Orange Co, New York. Isaac died December 3rd 1866 at the age of 47. He is buried in the Goodwill Presbyterian Church cemetery.

It appears that Sarah remained a widow for some time, however there is one curious entry in the Presbyterian Church records of Hamptonburgh, Orange Co, New York. On January 22nd 1867 a Sarah A McCord married a Henry McCarter. I can find no further information on this and (of course) the image of that record is the only one in the record set that is not viewable! (Record found on Ancestry.com with paid subscription)

In 1870 it appears that Sarah McCord was living in New York City with her sons James and John, and her mother Susan.

On November 18th 1875 Sarah A McCord married Charles Manson in Manhattan, New York. The record indexes on Family Search indicate that this is our Sarah as they list parent's names of both the bride and groom.

Sarah and Charles are (first and) last found on the 1880 US Census living in New York City with sons John and George McCord.

Sarah Faulkner McCord Manson died February 25th 1907. She was listed as a widow. The death index says she is buried at Woodlawn Cemetery in Manhattan, New York.
