Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Rachel Faulkner {Gen 4}

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

Rachel Faulkner (Harrison H, Robert, Samuel, William) was born in Monroe Twp, Kosciusko Co, Indiana about 1853, to parents Robert Nelson Faulkner and Julia Ann King.

Rachel married John O Kegg in Kosciusko Co on April 28th 1877.

The couple had two children:

  • Myrtle M Kegg b. 27 Apr 1881 d. 25 Oct 1970 m. Charles D Bridge
  • Elmer Chester Kegg b. 17 Feb 1884 d. 28 Jun 1969 never married

John Kegg was a blacksmith by trade, Rachel a housewife. 

Rachel died early in her life, passing away on April 11th 1889, leaving behind a husband and two young children. Rachel is buried in the Hillcrest Cemetery in Pierceton, Kosciusko Co, Indiana. 

John remarried the following July. He wed Isabelle Alexander on July 19th 1890. John and Isabelle would have one child together, a daughter named Bertha Belle Kegg.

John O Kegg died in 1940 and is buried in the Grace Lawn Cemetery in Elkhart, Elkhart Co, Indiana.

Anyone with additional information on this family is encouraged to contact me.
