Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Charles Word was born before 14 May 1710 in New Kent County, Virginia; died in 1792 in New Kent County, Virginia.

    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 14 May 1710, St. Peter, New Kent, Virginia

    Notes:

    GX5 grandfather of William Faulkner:

    Charles Word (1710-1792) = Sarah (Collins?) (1710-1742)
    Charles Word (1740-1780) = ?
    Thomas Adams Word (1768-1831) = Justiana Dickinson (1776-1865)
    Caroline Word (1798-1862) = Joseph William Faulkner (c1795-c1842)
    Col. William Clark Falkner (1825-1889) = Holland Pearce (c1830-1849)
    John Wesley Thompson Faulkner (1848-1922) = Sarah "Sallie" McAlpin Murry (1850-1906)
    Murry Cuthbert Faulkner (Falkner) (1870-1932) = Maud Butler (1871-1960)
    William Faulkner (Falkner) (1897-1962)

    Note that according to William Faulkner and Southern History by Joel Williamson (1995), Faulkner's Charles Word ancestor was born in Landaff, Glamorganshire, Wales. Two things about this, though.

    First, Williamson's citation for this is an item in the Ripley Public Library, Ripley, Mississippi, called "A Genealogy of the Word Family Written by James Word, December 23, 1882," which was provided to the Ripley library on an unknown date by one Eleanor MacDonald of Farmington, New Mexico. The Ripley library "has collected a vast amount of highly valuable relating to Ripley and Tippah County, the original seat of the Falkners in Mississipi." This does not suggest that Williamson's source represents the latest scholarship.

    Second, most online Word genealogies appear to agree that the original Word immigrant came from Llandaff, but they push that immigrant back a couple more generations to a John Word supposedly born in Llandaff around 1650. A subset of these trees claim that the Words were originally from Scotland and merely sailed from Llandaff.

    It does appear, at any rate, that there was indeed a Charles Word in Virginia, who died about 1792; who was married to a woman named Sarah; whose son Charles died in the Battle of King's Mountain in 1780; who had another son named Cuthbert who died in 1781 as a prisoner of the British on board the ship New Jersey; and who had a son named John who married Fannie Collins. We tentatively take this person to be both Patrick's ancestor and Faulkner's, wherever he was born.

    Charles married Sarah. [Group Sheet]

    Notes:

    Soldier, Continental Army (Virginia), American Revolution. Supposedly fought in the 1780 Battle of King's Mountain and survived, unlike his brother Charles Jr. (b. 1740) who was killed.

    For his birth, this site cites Chamberlayne, C. G., The Vestry Book and Register of St. Peter's Parish, New Kent and James City Countes, Virginia, 1684-1786 (The Library Board, Richmond, 1932).

    This site says his will "was made on May 25, 1821 and apparently probated August 1821." Named in it was "Sarah (married William McHaney)".

    John married Frances "Fanny" Collins on 9 Nov 1799 in Pittsylvania, Virginia. Frances (daughter of William Collins and Mary) died after 1821 in Tennessee. [Group Sheet]

    Hello, [email address redacted]!

    Mary Frances Butler is one of my great-great grandmothers. You created the FindAGrave.com page about her, so I'm hoping you won't mind a question. Do you have any documentation or source that proves that she was a daughter of Christopher C. Butler (1810-1858) and Mary Ann McHaney (b. 1817)?

    I ask because I have a copy of Judge Edward F. Butler's book The Butler Family, and while it lists six children for Christopher C. Butler and Mary McHaney (who he calls "Mary C. McHaney"), including both of the brothers you show on the FindAGrave page, he doesn't list Mary Frances.

    Judge Butler also shows Christopher C. Butler marrying his second wife, Eliza Jane Sexton, on 8 March 1851, which is doesn't reconcile with Mary Frances Butler being born of Mary Ann (or Mary C.) McHaney on 8 August 1851, five months later.

    My own relationship to Mary Frances Butler is:

    Mary Frances Butler = Monroe Marshall Jacobs
    Kate Jacobs = William Richard Workman
    Mildred Workman = James Delbert Hayden
    James Elbert Hayden = Jeannette Mary White
    Patrick Nielsen Hayden

    Many years ago my mother took notes while talking with Neville Workman, sister of my father's mother Mildred Workman, and Neville clearly remembered that Mary Frances Butler was her mother's mother, and said that Mary Frances's father was Christopher C. Butler--who she remembered as "Christopher Columbus Butler." And I certainly know that Judge Edward F. Butler's book has its share of mistakes. But I'm wondering if you have any further evidence that Mary Frances Butler was the daughter of this particular Butler/McHaney couple.

    Naturally, if there's any question I can answer for you about anybody in this particular cluster of relatives, I'll be happy to do so.

    Notes:

    Her father Monroe Marshall Jacobs died when she was about five years old. Then when she was nearly eight, her mother married Uriah Jasper Hammonds.

    When she was sixteen, she herself married William Richard Workman, her stepfather's nephew, twelve years older than her. (William's mother Narcissa was Uriah Hammonds's sister.)

    Sometime in the late 1920s, when she was about forty and her younger daughter Mildred was still in her teens, she bundled up both daughters and left for Michigan (legend says, in the middle of the night), never to see her husband again.

    According to my father, Neville stayed in occasional touch with her father, but Kate and Mildred had nothing further to do with him.

    I'm always wondered if she was pressured into marrying her stepfather's nephew while she was still in her teens, and if the marriage ultimately worked out as well as such an arrangement might have been expected to. The abruptness of her departure does suggest some kind of sudden and unpleasant discovery or event. (Alternately, her mother's death in 1926 might have been what finally set events in motion.)

    --PNH

    One of the witnesses to the record of William Workman posting marriage bond was a "J. T. Hammonds". Possibly William Workman's cousin James Thomas Hammonds (1863-1914), son of Younger Hammonds -- or possibly William's cousin Thomas James Hammonds (b. 1865), son of Kate's stepfather Uriah Jasper Hammonds by his previous wife Mary Elizabeth Bobbitt. At any rate, it does seem like Kate Jacobs spent a lot of her early life overwhelmingly surrounded by Hammondses.

    Kate married William Richard Workman on 12 Nov 1903 in Gibson County, Tennessee. William (son of Jefferson Porter Workman and Narcissa Jeffers Hammonds) was born on 4 Oct 1875 in Fulton County, Kentucky; died on 1 Jul 1945 in Detroit, Wayne, Michigan; was buried in Fairview Cemetery, Fulton, Fulton, Kentucky.
