E. J. FAULKNER is a native of Trigg County, Ky., where he was born in 1834, but has resided in Christian County about thirty years. His father’s name was Ephraim Faulkner and his grandfather’s name was John. Mr. Faulkner had seven brothers and sisters. His mother’s name was Elizabeth, daughter of Mattie and Caldwell P. Poole, who was a soldier of the Revolution. Mr. Faulkner’s parents came at an early day to that part of Christian County which is now Trigg County, and improved a farm there. Mr. Faulkner was educated in the common schools and worked at home on the farm till twenty-one years of age. Then he managed business for others till he acquired sufficient capital to start farming on his own account, buying a farm in 1862. Afterward he sold that farm and bought the one on which he at present resides. On December 9, 1862 he was married to Miss S. C. Mason, the eighth child out of nine of John B. and Belina Mason. Her parents were natives of Virginia, who immigrated here in1830; William Mason, her grandfather, was a Revolutionary soldier. These children have been born to this union: Faulkner, Ida, Robert and Walter. Mrs. Faulkner died in 1863. In 1869 Mr. Faulkner married Miss Ann F. Mason, the sister of his first wife. He and his son Robert are members of the Church Hill Grange. Mrs. Faulkner is a Baptist.
