was born Abt. 1718 in Queen

The 8 October 1754 roll of Colonel William Eaton's Regiment of North
Carolina Militia (Volume 22, North Carolina, USA State Records) lists Emanuel
Falkner and William Falkner in Captain John Glover's Company; Emanuel
Falkner, William Falkner and Samuel Falkner in Captain Sugan Jones' Company,
and Francis Falkner and Emanuel Falkner in Captain Andrew Hampton's Company.

James Falkner reports that Emanuel Faulkner fought in the American
Revolution. He was a Minute Man in the Cape Fear area.

25 Sep 1777: Court House Record - "John Gilliam to Joseph Mangum, 80
Acres on SS Courthouse Prong of Sandy Creek adj Joseph Mangum at County

--roll taken 8 Oct 1754--
NOTE: This muster roll [found in Vol. 22 of the North Carolina, USA State Records] is generally
considered to be the first true accounting of all able-bodied men in Granville County. Those men
in this regiment are believed to range in ages from young (teens) to much older (perhaps even
some grandfathers!). Relationships were not noted, but no doubt both fathers and sons are among
them. You will note the great number of "juniors" on the muster roll. Care should be taken not to
"assume" relationships, as most likely there are cousins, fathers, sons, brothers, and possibly
grandsons listed.
