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

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

Mary Ann Faulkner (Joseph, James, William OR Priscilla, William, William) was born about 1810 in Orange Co, New York to parents (and first cousins) Joseph Faulkner and his wife Priscilla Faulkner.

Mary Ann married Hiram Walsh (born about 1808) on February 7th 1828 at the Presbyterian church in Hamptonburgh, Orange Co, New York.

The couple had at least three children:

  • Harriet Walsh b. 1833 d. 4 Jan 1908 m. John Galloway
  • Melinie Walsh b. 1842 d. 28 Dec 1907 never married
  • Addie Walsh b. April 1843 d. UNK

The children were listed as being born in Middletown, I found that information on the death certificates of Harriet and Melinie. Addie is living with sister Harriet in 1875 and nephew Bartlett Galloway in 1900.  I found a Hiram Walsh/Welch on the 1830 and 1840 census in Orange Co, New York. I found nothing at all for Mary Ann Faulkner Walsh.

Where did they go? When did they die? Where are they buried?

Another mystery family.

~This particular family line is proving to be very challenging, as you will see in the coming weeks. The family of Joseph and Priscilla Faulkner are showing to be elusive and vague. I intend to supply what I know, maybe something will ring a bell with someone.~
