Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Lloyd Anson Faulkner M.D. {Gen 4}



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

Lloyd Anson Faulkner M.D. (Harrison, James, Samuel, William) was born in Faribault, Rice Co, Minnesota, September 30th 1862, to parents Harrison Faulkner and Jane Whitford.

The new doctor returned to Minnesota soon after graduating.

For a time Dr Faulkner ran a side business dealing in gems and minerals obtained from Lake Superior. The venture was called "Dr L A Faulkner & Co, Natural Science Establishment".

Dr Faulkner delivered all his own children, of course!

Dr Lloyd Anson Faulkner died December 18th 1933 of prostate cancer. He was 71 years old. He is buried in Acacia Park Cemetery in Mendota Heights, MN.

Anna Elizabeth O'Connell Faulkner continued to lead a long and healthy life for the next 29 years! Anna died April 18th 1962 at the impressive age of 100. She is buried alongside her husband in Acacia Park Cemetery.

Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Julie Ann Hagerman {Gen 4}


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


Julie Ann Hagerman (Eliza Marie, Robert, Samuel, William) was born in Springfield, Greene Co, Missouri, October 20th 1869, to parents Eliza Marie Faulkner and Jacob Hagerman.

Julie Ann married Charles S Barnett (1866-1944) on December 21st 1892 in Labette Co., Kansas.

The couple had four children:

  • Charles Augustus Barnett b. 19 Dec 1894 d. 1959 m. Eva Belle Allison
  • UFN Barnett b. UNK d. UNK
  • Mabel Barnett b. 16 Aug 1898 d. 1991 m. Guylio Miller no issue
  • Bessie Barnett b. 16 Apr 1900 d. 1 Aug 1972 m. Ferman R Griffin

Julie Ann was born in Missouri while her family was en route to Kansas. She may have met her husband through her brother-in-law George Wood, her sister Ursilla's husband, as he was a boarder and farm hand in the household of Charles Barnett's family. 

Julie Ann and Charles traveled West to California, presumably with sister Ursilla and her husband George, as their first child was born in Ventura, California, the same year and city as Ursilla's first child.

Whatever the reason for the journey West, by 1898 the couple was back in Kansas, where their last two daughters were born. To date it is unclear as to the identity or birth/death year of the fourth child, only that Julie Ann declares she is the mother of four children (3 living) on the 1910 US Census.

Husband Charles was a carpenter by trade, employed by various factories. 

The family moved to Madison Co, Illinois around 1910 and there they remained.

Julie Ann Hagerman Barnett died March 2nd 1936 and is buried in St John's Cemetery in Granite City, Madison Co, Illinois. She was 66 years old.

Charles Sampson Barnett died in St Louis, MO on Aug 18th 1944 and is buried alongside his wife in St John's Cemetery. Charles was 77 years old.

Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Ursilla A Hagerman {Gen 4}



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


Ursilla A Hagerman (Eliza Marie, Robert, Samuel, William) was born in Monroe Twp., Kosciusko Co, Indiana, August 13th 1861, to parents Eliza Marie Faulkner and Jacob Hagerman.

Ursilla married George A Wood (1855-1937) on January 29th 1886 in Labette Co, Kansas. This was a second marriage for George, presumably divorced.

The couple had two children:

  • Chester Avah Wood b. 31 Jan 1894 d. 1 Nov 1941 m. Pearl E Castleberry
  • Victor Darwin Wood b. 11 Nov 1899 d. 8 Mar 1962 m. Elsie M Castleberry

George Wood was a farmer in Greene Co, Illinois. He was married first to Sarah King and had two children with her. Prior to his marriage to Ursilla George must have divorced Sarah as both are remarried to other spouses by 1892. George's first two children remained with their mother and step father, residing in McLean Co, Illinois.

George appeared to have left his farm and home in 1885, as he turned up in March of that year on the Kansas census, as a single farmer in Labette Co. The following January George married Ursilla and the couple headed west. Their first child, Chester, was born in Ventura, California in 1894. By 1899, and the birth of their second child, the family had returned to Greene Co, Illinois, and George's farm, where they remained.


Ursilla A Hagerman Wood died January 9th 1929 at the age of 67. She is buried in Richwoods Cemetery in Athensville, Greene Co, Illinois.

George A Wood died 7 years later on August 22nd 1937. George was 82. He is buried in Richwoods Cemetery alongside his wife.

John W Faulkner was a farmer in Kosciusko Co, Indiana his whole life. From "A standard history of Kosciusko County, Indiana" by Lemuel W. Royse: "John W. Faulkner. One of the enterprising and progressive men who are principally engaged in agricultural pursuits in Kosciusko County, John W. Faulkner brought to his calling excellent judgment and good business methods, and his labors have been crowned with success. He owns a good and well managed farm of 160 acres in Monroe Township, 3 1/2 miles south of Pierceton on rural route No. 2. 
  Mr. Faulkner was born in this township September 7, 1850, son of Nelson and Julia A. (King) Faulkner. His father was born in New York State and his mother in Ohio.

George had several professions in his lifetime. He was a railroad conductor during the time his children were young. Later he was a farmer and eventually became a salesman in the real estate industry.

George had trouble staying married. He claimed to have divorced Vinnie, wife #1, in 1911 which brings up the question of paternity with son George Lyle. He married briefly wife #2, who is as yet nameless and supposedly died in 1918 (according to George). George married for a third time Bertha Merritt a woman 20 years his junior. George and Bertha divorced four months later in January of 1921. George married a fourth time widow Anna (Boom) Tazlaar. They stayed married until Anna's death in 1933. George tried again, marrying for the fifth time widow Dena H (Speer) Stem. They remained married until George's death.

Vinnie herself was remarried twice. First in 1924 to David Sturtevant who deserted her shortly after the marriage. Vinnie filed for divorce in May 1926 and married again in June 1926 to Frank E Harkness. They remained married until Vinnie's death.

George W Faulkner died May 15th 1940 and is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery in Marion, Osceola Co, MI with his daughter Florence.

Vinnie Reist Faulkner Sturtevant Harkness died Jan 25 1944 and is buried in the Oakwood Cemetery in Muskegon, Muskegon Co, MI alongside her husband Frank Harkness.

After marriage RN got into the food services/restaurant business, traveling to Los Angeles, CA in the early 1880's to operate a "coffee saloon".

Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Clarence W Faulkner {Gen 4}


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


Clarence W Faulkner (George W, Robert, Samuel, William) was born in Indiana March 25th 1842, to parents George Washington Faulkner and Harriet Pheobe Smith.

Clarence married (1) Lovina Lansing (1848-1867) July 3rd 1866 in Chicago, IL (2) Ella A Stebbins (1850-1884) September 14th 1868 in Oceana Co, MI (3) Alice Sullivan (1845-1928) September 12th 1875 in Chicago, IL AND April 11th 1903 in Indiana.

Clarence and Lovina had one child born in Oceana Co, MI:

  • UFN Faulkner b. Oct 1867 d. UNK

Lovina died in childbirth October 6th 1867. It is not know whether the child survived. Lovina is buried in Pentwater Twp Cemetery in Pentwater, Oceana Co, Mi.

After a brief hiatus in Chicago, IL Clarence returned to Pentwater, MI and married for a second time.

Clarence and Ella had one child born in Jefferson Co, CO:

  • Clarence I Faulkner b. 25 Mar 1873 d. UNK m. Lena P Dickerson

Clarence and Ella got divorced shortly after the birth of their son and Clarence returned to Chicago, IL, where he married for a third time. Ella married Clark A Titus in 1882, having two more children with him. Ella died in childbirth Oct 2 1884 and is buried in the Mountain View Cemetery in Boulder, CO.

Clarence and Alice had one child born Chicago IL:

  • Fred Faulkner b. 19 Jun 1868 d. 22 Sep 1935 never married

Clarence was in the grocery and restaurant business and traveled a lot. I can only speculate, but it is curious that his son Fred was born in 1868 (to his third wife) two months before Clarence married his second wife. Unless Fred is not Clarence's son, this is still a mystery needing to be solved.

Clarence's brother RN Faulkner was attending college in Chicago in 1867 and 1868.

Clarence may not have know about the birth of his son Fred before he married Ella. That marriage was short-lived and Clarence returned to Chicago to marry Fred's mother. The couple remained married, I presume, until Clarence's death March 25th 1926. Alice followed two years later on March 11th 1928. They are buried in the Westville Cemetery in LaPorte Co, IN with their son Fred.

I did find another marriage record for Clarence W Faulkner and Alice Faulkner in 1903 in Indiana ...... I don't know why.
