My great-grandfather Dr. Faulkner practiced horse and buggy medicine in Upper Spencer and Mt. Sterling for many years. I'm told he delivered over 5,000 babies in his day. He first married Pattie Clay Faulkner in 1896(daughter of Aubrey Devereau Faulkner and Sarah Bowen, born 10/23/1879, died 1/17/1900). Pattie gave birth to two sons prior to her death at age 21. He then married Lura Deen Hanks in 1901. When Lura died in 1918 during the Spanish flu epidemic, he married Bertha Sample Faulkner in 1920, or we knew her as "Great Grandmommy". They had no children together.

Morton's parents were Jesse Faulkner and Ruth Hanks Faulkner (daughter of Vancouver Hanks). His daughter Zelma was my grandmother.

Children of Morton Faulkner and Lura Hanks are:
1061 i. Lida Belle Faulkner, born in Montgomery C0, KY; died 1918, Montgomery CO, Kentucky, United States of America.
1062 ii. Pattie Mae Faulkner, born 28 Mar 1902; died 20 Sep 1903.
+ 1063 iii. Zelma Faulkner, born 01 Sep 1905 in Powell C0, KY; died 19 Jan 1985 in Lexington, KY.
1064 iv. Dr. Charles Raymond Faulkner, born 29 Jun 1913 in Montgomery, Kentucky. He married Virginia M Greenwade born 1915. Lived in Somerset, KY.
1065 v. Ruth Elizabeth Faulkner, born 13 Dec 1915 in Montgomery, Kentucky.
1066 vi. Shirley W Faulkner, born in KY.
1067 vii. Arthur J Faulkner, born in KY.
