The trip was made in a three-horse covered wagon. her parents settled at what is today Mt. Vernon. her father was a methodist preacher, of this parish, Rev. R.T. Williams. At an early age she was married to R. W. Faulk, a prosperous planter of Ouachita. Her husband was the son of John T. Faulk who was the progenitor of all the Faulk family of this section today.
