  1. Trigg County, Kentucky, Birth Register 1852-1853, vol. B, p. 4, Wm H McGiven’s Return, H. B. Faulkner, 20 Sept 1852. Male, born in Trigg County, Father: H B Faulkner Sr. Mother: Elizabeth Gray. Parents’ residence: Trigg County.
    Notes: The register contained H.B.’s birth reads 1852 on the front cover; 1853 on first page. No years are listed with the births, just day and month. The death record of Susan Faulkner (H.B’s sister) lists her birth as 26 Dec 1852 but no birth was found in the registers. Richard Faulkner’s birth record (H.B.’s brother) is found in the 1854-1855 register and his headstone reads 2 July 1854. Either H. B.’s or Susan’s birth year is incorrect; it is possible Susan was born in 1851.
