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

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

Catherine Jane Faulkner (Joseph, James, William OR Priscilla, William, William) was born about 1826 in Orange Co, New York to parents (and first cousins) Joseph Faulkner and his wife Priscilla Faulkner.

Catherine Jane married John W Wells (born about 1825) about 1846 in Pennsylvania.

The couple had at least four children: (all born Pennsylvania)
  • Ada L Wells b. 23 Sep 1847 d. 13 Jan 1928 never married
  • Edith Wells b. 20 Aug 1853 d. 7 Aug 1936 m. Edward Wheeler no issue
  • Andrew Wells b. abt 1854 d. UNK
  • Bertha M Wells b. May 1864 d. 18 Feb 1949 m. John F Wheeler

John died sometime before 1870 I suspect, he is not listed on the census with Catherine and the children. The last census Catherine appears on is 1880, listed as widowed. 

The death dates and burial locations for Catherine and John are not known.

~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.~
