Hi,
There is a John William Faulkner born to Major & Bessie Faulkner in Qld in 1910.
The below is a death notice in Tasmania newspaper the Examiner 24th Sep 1938 for Bessie Faulkner -
FAULKNER-On the 23rd September,
at Burnie, Bessie, dearly beloved
wife of Major Faulkner, of Waratah,
aged 46 years.
There is another death notice in Examiner dated 27 Sept 1938 with more detail
DEATH OF MRS. FAULKNER.-
regret was expressed at Waratah when
it became known that Mrs. Faulkner,
wife of Major Faulkner, of Waratah,
had died at the Darwin Hospital Burnie,
on Friday. Although Mrs. Faulkner was
of a quiet and reitring nature,
and was not prominently associated
with outside affairs, she was held in
high esteem throughout the Waratah
district, where she has resided for
over 25 years. Deceased leaves a hus
band and family of seven - Messrs
John (Hobart), Leslie (Kindred), Eric
(Rosebery), and Misses Mary, Betty,
Lucy, and Joyce (Waratah)

Interestingly there is also a notice of Bessie's death in the Cairns Post on 21st Oct 1938 so she must have had family still in Cairns

hope this helps
