Lavinia A. "Vina/Vinie" Faulkner Brown
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 18, 1886
Lincoln County
Tennessee, USA
Death: May 20, 1946
Marshall County
Tennessee, USA

Vinie was the daughter of William "Billy" Faulkner and his second wife, Martha Adaline "Aunt Matt Ab" McGee.

She was married to Earnest Jackson Ashby and, following his death, to Benjamin "Ben" Monroe Brown, identified in some cases as Henry Ben Brown.

Vina's obit states she was buried in Spring Place Cemetery - this name is difficult to pin down these days, as the graveyard is now known as "Short Cemetery."

She was the mother of Auldon Jackson; Ethel M.; Garland Asberry; Rachel; John L.; and Marvin C. Ashby.

Marvin and Ernest are buried in one of the Ashby Graveyards in LCT.

It is of note that Marvin (b. 2 February 1914) was killed in a Flying Circus crash at Lincoln County Fairgrounds and died in Fayetteville on 27 April 1930. Rachel, who died at four in 1919 of diphtheria, is buried there, also.

Garland and Auldon are buried in the Talley Cemetery in Lewisburg, Marshall Co., TN. We have no information on John after the 1910 LCT census or on Ethel after the 1920 LCT census.

Tom, her brother referred to in the obit below, was known as "Kip" Faulkner.
