Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Frederick J Faulkner {Gen 4}

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

Frederick Jackson Faulkner (Nelson, John M, Samuel, William) was born in Tioga Co, New York, April 13th 1879, to parents Nelson Faulkner and Martha Shaw.

Frederick married Claire Edith Hanna (1880-1952) December 28th 1909 in Lock Haven, Clinton Co, Pennsylvania.

The couple had at least three children:

  • Louise Viola Faulkner b. 29 Jan 1911 d. 12 Dec 2001 never married
  • Madelyn M Faulkner b. 17 May 1913 d. Jul 1973 m. George C Shaffer no issue
  • Freda Claire Faulkner b.  2 Apr 1920 d. 2001 never married

Frederick was born in Tioga Co, New York and moved with his family to Pennsylvania when he was one year old. 

Fred worked for the Pennsylvania Railroad his entire life. He had an 8th grade education. He was drafted in both WWI and WWII but I am unsure whether he saw combat. 

The couple made their home in Clinton Co, PA, first in Renovo and later in Lock Haven.

Claire Edith Hanna Faulkner, a diabetic, died February 23rd 1952 at the age of 71. She is buried in Flemington Cemetery in Flemington, Clinton Co, PA.

Frederick J Faulkner died March 11th 1956 of Pancreatic Cancer. He was 76 years old. Fred is buried in Flemington Cemetery alongside his wife.
