About us

Our goal is to find a common ancestor of the Fortenberry, Faulkenberry, Falconberry and Falkenberg families.


#1 George Harrison Falkenburg Sr. 1869 NJ

#2 James Leath Fortenberry abt. 1750 NC, Jacob 1789 Va. or NC, Oliver Rice 1821 Lawrence Co. Ar., Joseph Henry 1846 Lawrence Co. Ar., Oliver L 1882 Texas, Joe Texas, Oliver Joe Texas James Leath Fortenberry who was born roughly 1755. He and his wife, Mrs. Margaret Jones Fortenberry, were the progenitors of almost all, if not all, of the Lawrence County Arkansas Fortenberrys. Several descendants of the Fortenberry family moved to Texas. James and his sons were the first Fortenberry's to migrate so far west. They were among the earliest settlers of Missouri Territory and later Arkansas Territory. They arrived in New Madrid, Missouri Territory in about 1806 and then to Lawrence County Ar. in about 1812.

#3 Henry Fortenberry was born in 1810 in NC. Migrated to TN. before 1840. Son Richard born in Tn in 1843. Henry and family migrated to Lawrence Co. Ar. in 1859. Henry died 1860-1870. Richard moved to Jack Co.,Tx abt 1873. Richard died in Knox Co., Tx in 1919. Son Baxter born in Jack Co. Tx in 1880 and moved to Ca. in 1917 and died in Riverside Co., Ca. in 1959. Son Robert Lee born in Imperial Valley Ca. in 1918 and died in Eastland Co., Tx. in 1991. Son Randall bn in Reedley Ca. in 1940 and still living in Oregon.

#4 Isaac Sr.1745 NC, Isaac Jr 1775 Anson Co. NC., Hugh bn 1811 Lancaster Co., SC.,Jesse Lee bn 1838 MS.,Jesse Benjamin bn. 1866 MS.,Curtis Benjamin bn 1901 MS., Bobby Joe bn. 1931 MS.

#5 Jacob Faulkenberry bn 1760 SC., James Talley born in SC in 1808, died in 1897 in Tyler Co., Texas The earliest known record for Jacob in Mississippi is in Marriage Book 1, page 99, in which it lists the marriage of his daughter, Frances, on February 2, 1822 to Asa Myers in Lawrence County, Mississippi. It is possible that he arrived some time before 1822, but there is no further proof. He does not apeear on the 1820 Mississippi census, indicating that he had not yet arrived. In all likelihood, he is the Jacob Fortenberry on the 1820 Lancaster County, South Carolina census.

#6 Pitman Warner Faulkinbury bn 1810 in Anson Co. NC. believed to be the son of William Faulkinbury. Pitman migrated to Indiana, William Jasper Faulkinbury, son of Pitman, was recorded as William J Fortenberry when he married Susan A J Adams in Lafayette Mississippi in 1857 according to the Mississippi Marriages, 1826-1900. By the Census records, Pitman and his family traveled from South Carolina to Alabama after 1840; the 1850 Census showed they had moved to Lincoln County, Tennessee (his name was spelled Putnam Fortenberry); the 1860 Census has them in Calhoun County, Mississippi (his name was spelled Pitman Fortenburg age 54, there was a William Fortenburg, 55, living on a farm next to Pitman, we believe was his brother) and the 1880 census they were in Boone County in Indiana , where Pitman and Hulda died and are buried in the Sheeks Family Cemetery. Pitman's name was spelled Faulkenbury.
