"Buckmaster, Holmes. Lanier & Thurber Family Tree" posted on RootsWeb WorldConnect http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=laura47&id=I83608 lists Samuel Albert Faulkenberry (born 31 October 1850 Arkansas; died 28 November 1919 Granger, Williamson County, Texas) as a descendant of David Faulkenberry (born circa 1746 South Carolina; died circa 1841 Cannon County, Tennessee).

One descendant of Samuel Albert Faulkenberry has tested positive on the 12-marker Y-DNA with the Fortenberry/Faulkenberry group that match Van Valkenberg, and the above site shows Samuel Albert Faulkenberry's ascendancy to David Faulkenberry.

Before you get excited, a 12-marker tests is not a close test because MANY people and MANY surnames match at that level. Those who want genealogical support need at least the 37-marker test, in my opinion. Also, I don't know if there is a paper trail or a "supposed trail" in this line, as it is not mine.
