Obituary of Edward Curtis Faulkner, Hopkinsville, Kentucky.

Rev. Edward Curtis Faulkner, venerable servant of God, has been called to his reward, after some years of failing health.

He was a native of Trigg County, Ky., being born near Wallonia on November 18, 1842. He entered the Confederate service in September, 1861, and was a brave and gallant soldier throughout the war. He was graduated from Bethel College at Russellville in June, 1875, and was ordained as a minister of the gospel January 16, 1876. Throughout his long career he was an able, loyal, and earnest worker in the Master's vineyard, and hundreds were led to Christ by his ministry. He had held pastorates at Jackson and Ripley, Tenn., and at Searcy, El Dorado, Monticello, and Dardanelle, Ark. He retired from the active ministry in 1915 and went to Hopkinsville, Ky. to spend his declining years.

Mr. Faulkner was married to Miss Lulie Carney in February 1877. She was a daughter of the Rev. M. G. Carney, of Montgomery County, Tenn. His wife survives him with two sons, Curtis G. Faulkner, of Clarksville, Tenn., and Edward T. Faulkner, with the Army of Occupation, Auderbach, Germany. There were also two brothers and two sisters surviving.

He was laid to rest in the cemetery at Trenton, Ky.
