Thanks for responding.I received a lot of information on Hiram' parents and his siblings from a Sandra Brown in Corbin, Kentucky.According to my files, Hiram was born 7 Jan 1812, in Whitley Co., Ky.Hiram married Lavina Brown b. 1810.Hiram was the 8th son of Francis M.Faulkner b 1760 and Nancy Dunsmore & I think she must have been married before because her tombstone reads Nancy Blake Faulkner.They are both buried in the Hill Cemetery in Blanche, Alabama in Cherokee County.
My gggm, Nancy Faulkner was the next child after Hiram.
I have Martha Faulkner as being born 2 Mar 1835 in Cherokee Co., Alabama.She married Joseph Montgomery Burgess (b. 7 Dec 1825) 11 Dec 1849.
Sandra Brown also sent me copies of two letters written in 1849 by Francis M. Faulkner in Cherokee County, AL to his son, Daniel in Kentucky.I will send you a copy if you are interested.
