George S. Faulkner is my great grandfather. His son, Othel, was my grandfather. They originally came from Joy, Livingston County, KY, where George was a grocer by trade. According to family lore, George left Joy one step ahead of Federal agents, due to George's penchant for making untaxed homemade spirits available to the clientele of the grocery. He then settled in Bay City IL, across the river from Livingston County, KY. The residence where he lived can still be seen directly south of the old C.R. Weeks store in Bay City. I also understand that George's old store in Joy may possibly still be standing. Othel, my grandfather was his son, as was Floyd and Lloyd, who just passed away this month (August 2001). More information on George can be found in the History and Families of Pope County, Volume II. I believe these can be bought from the Pope County Historical Society in Golconda IL. If you have any information of George's family going farther in his past, please let me know. Thank You!!
