While reading through the biographies and searching for the name Faulkner, I came across the line (Wife of J.W. Faulkner)in the biography of Charles G. Boerner. J.W. Faulkner is one of my gr-gr grandfathers and was married to Q.J. Vanover of North Carolina, so this marriage of his while living in Patriot is news to me.
I'm not sure where to continue where a search of records in Switzerland County is concerned, but I guess there has to be something somewhere recording his marriage.
