Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | John Faulkner {Gen 3}

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

John Faulkner (William, James, William) was born Aug 1775 to William Bull Faulkner and his first wife (NU). Very little is known about him. The Bull Book records him as Captain John Faulkner, perhaps he served in the War of 1812? 

John married Catherine McCord, daughter of Samuel McCord about 1798.

Children of this couple include:
  • William McCord Faulkner b. 24 Nov 1799 d. UNK
  • Samuel McCord Faulkner b. 31 Jan 1802 d. Jun 1856 ~ never married
In researching the children I discovered the possibility of a daughter:
  • Priscilla Faulkner b. 1806
Although Samuel M Faulkner never married his probate records name heirs-in-law, next of kin and three adult women to be notified of the court proceedings. I will publish a separate study of both Samuel and Priscilla. This has stumped me for a while!

John Faulkner's death and burial are not know at this time.
