Not sure if you're interested in this, but here are the land purchases that your ancestor Carroll Falkner made from the US Government. Note that on these documents, he reported to the government land officer in Monroe that his name was "Falkner" as opposed to "Faulkner", as others in the parish spelled it. Not sure how significant this is. Here are his purchases:
1) 15 April 1857 - he bought 40.09 acres in Section 29, Township 23 North, Range 1 West for $30.07 cash. He also bought another 40.09 acres in the same area for $50.11.
2) 28 July 1859 - bought 80 acres adjoining acres for $40.03 cash.
3) 15 Oct 1860 - bought 120.26 acres in same area for $60.13.
I don't see that he served in the Confederate Army from Louisiana. How do you know that he died in 1868? I don't see him listed on the 1867 List of Voters in Union Parish. Not every male resident registered, but the vast majority did.
It seems odd that he left a farm and yet there was no succession filed for his estate. The 1870 census indicates that Wealthy still owned the farm.
