Hello Buddy, I hope you find this. I just found out that your Thomas Melton was the son of David and Martha Prater Faulkenberry. He is the brother of my great-grandpa, James David Faulkenberry, and John Franklin, my grandpa, is his son. Martha's parents were Martin Luther and Nancy Lucinda Harpoole Faulkenberry. The other children are: Mary Ann Elizabeth, Susan, Holly Burrel, and Martha Jane. That is all I know thanks to someone on FamilyHistory.com.Hope this helps.Barbara Hairrell.
