Margaret Savannah Faulkner was b.Nov 15, 1860 in Arkansas.
Her mother was widowed after her father died in the Civil War. He had fought for the Union Army & died in Feb, 1865. The family had moved from Tennessee to Marble, Arkansas in 1853 and then from Arkansas to Texas after 1865. Morgan, Margaret's older brother, supported the family by operating a livery stable and hotel near the Collinsville train station. He also farmed and was a Deputy Sheriff of Cooke County for a few yrs. He was a Justice of the Peace later in life. He then married Samantha Elvira Tabor Aug 22, 1872, and they were blessed with nine children. When Margaret Savannah Faulkner came of age, she married Charles Chitendon Carter from Big Stone Gap, VA. They were married in 1885 and were blessed with four children, three girls and a boy. The couple moved to live in the Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory, which is now known as Ardmore, in Carter County, Oklahoma. Their children were James Edward b.1886, Vida Ethel b.1888, Mary Leanna b.1890 and Minnie Gertrude b.1892. Margaret and "Chit", as he was known by, remained in Oklahoma all of their married days, raising their children there. In 1910 it was known as Carter County, Oklahoma and they had a farm hand to help out named Isaac Stewart. Chit was 48 yrs. of age by now. In 1930, Margaret and Chit were living in what was now known as the township of Berwyn in Carter County, just the two of them, aged 67 and 68. Her beloved husband died in 1932 and was buried in Pruitt Cemetery in Ardmore, Carter County, Oklahoma. Margaret listed herself as married in the 1940 US Census, although she had been a widow for over 8 years. She was still in the Berwyn Township in the same house where she and her husband had raised their children and lived all of those years whether it was in Indian Territory or Berwyn Township in Oklahoma. She and her husband had seen the Oklahoma territory become a state on Nov 16, 1907. She passed away at the age of 84 on Mar 17, 1945. She is buried near her husband, Crit Carter at Pruitt Cemetery. I haven't located her children yet. She was my 2nd Cousin.
