  • Notes 
    • Family tradition indicates Martha [maiden name unknown] Faulkner is buried here.

      In the 1850 LCT Census, she is living with Robert O. Faulkner, said to be one of her children.

      We are told Martha and her husband, William came to the U.S. around 1822, landing in Charleston, Charleston Co., SC (where hubby died).

      After the death of the paterfamilias, most of the family (except Jim, a son) moved on to Lincoln County, TN.

      This included Martha's reputed children, William "Billy" Faulkner, Robert O. Faulkner, Sarah J. Faulkner, and Mary Jane Faulkner.

      Sarah Faulkner Bray was somehow related to this clan.

      Martha also appears in the 1860 LCT Census; Sarah is living with her at the time. In that census, the census taker identifies her birthplace as County "Dairy."

      She also appears in a 7 June 1862 Assessment of Lands for LCT; it is not know if this was in the wake of her death, or whether she was alive at the time.
