This John was the brother of my ancestor Joseph Faulconer, Rev. War Soldier, born Nov. 5 1757; married to Frances Nelson.
John was also married to Elizabeth Nutall.
He died August 28, 1826 in Orange Co., VA.
John and Joseph came from a family of ten.
Their parents were John Faulconer and Rejoice "Joice" Craig. I have some info on most of the siblings.

John,Sr. born about 1722 in Spotsylvania or Essex Co., VA-died about 1805 in KY
married about 1746 in Spts. John, Sr.'s parents are believed to be Nicholas Faulconer and Sybilla.

Rejoice Craig, born 1732 in Spts. or Orange Co., VA - died about 1812 in KY.
Parents: Taliaferro "Toliver" Craig, Sr. and Mary "Polly" Hawkins. Both were in the Rev. War at Bryant's Station and are in the D.A.R. records. This is the Craig family from Spts. Co., who migrated to Kentucky as the "Traveling Church". Three of their sons were Baptist ministers, Joseph, Lewis and Elijah who was considered to be the most famous and eloquent of them all. Much is recorded about Elijah, especially in Georgetown, Kentucky (now Scott Co.).

How are you related to the Faulconer line?
