John L. Faulk
± 1710-± 1780
Il est marié avec Mary Hinnant estimé vers 1775, il avait 20 ans.
Phillip Faulk SR. was born 1755 - 1760 in North Carolina, probably Edgecombe County, and died abt 1825 in Columbus County, NC. He is probably buried in a cemetery now destroyed on the high ground south of Seven Creeks and west of the Waccamaw River. He possibly is the son of Wright and Jennett Faulk. Based on the birth of his first child, he was married circa 1775 -1780. The most likely person who was his wife was Mary probably Hinnant, of Johnston County, North Carolina.
There is no record about her, but Phillip's wife must have died abt 1830 and be buried with him.
LOCATION OF FORMER SWAMP HOUSE PLANTATION:
By: Charles B. Schweizer who went there abt 1983 with James Faulk who had worked the land. Per his msg of 11 Sep 03.
Starting at the junction of the road at Piraway drive toward Nakina/Bughill a short distance. Twenty years ago a gravel road lead to the area of Seven Creeks and the Waccamaw River. We drove down the road past homes still occupied by Long families and came to a plain at the junction. That is the site of Swamp House plantation.
James said a barn used to stand near the Creek and a spot where nothing would grow was up the hill to the south of the plain. It was rumored that that had been an old cemetery. It is my opinion that that is where Phillip Faulk and family are buried. Since no one would build a house where it flooded I assume the Phillip Faulk House was also up the hill above the flood level and near the spot where nothing would grow.
In abt.1784 Philip and his brother Richard and their uncle William, who was their age, moved from Dobbs (that part is now Johnston Co) to Bladen County were Moses and Lorena (Faulk) Coleman lived. Per Charles B. Schweizer.
The first reference to Phillip Faulk is his witnessing a deed in Bladen County, now Columbus County, of a land transaction in 1784 of Richard Faulk.
1789 Bladen Co Tax Rolls - Pg 200 Philip Faulk - Free Poll - 1.
1790 Bladen Co., NC census
Philip Faulk, 1 m >16 (b. 1774-1790); 2 m <16 (b. before1774); 5 females.
This translates to himself and 1 son b. before 1774. 1 son b. 1774-1790, wife and 4 daughters.
1800 Census Brunswick Co., North Carolina - Page 19
Philip Faulk, 1 m under 10; 1 m 10-16, 1 m 16-26; 1 male 26-45; 1 female under 10; 2 females 10-16, a female 26-45.
This can be translated into
1 m. b. 1790-1800
1 m. b. 1784-1790
1 m. b. 1774 - 1784
1 m. b. 1755- 1774 = Philip
1 f. b. 1790 -1800
2 f. b. 1784-1790
1 f. b. 1755-1774 = Ary m. Benjamin Lambeth Sr.
Per Susan FD Thomas: Enos Lay sold in 1783 and 1788 Swamp House Plantation Tracts to John Smith.
Is this Enos Lay connected with Philip Faulk? In the list of Minor Heirs 5 Lay children are mentioned.
Enos Lay is mentioned in a Rev. War file (Horry Co, SC web site) as having served under Major John Warden in the summer of 1783. He was one of nine men mentioned by Maj. Warden as needing relief for having served that summer and lost their crops on account of this service. His lands were next to that of Philip Faulk.
John Lay and Enos Lay were neighbors of Josiah and Joshua Long in SC.
During the Nov. term 1828, Charles Baldwin, Clerk of the Columbus County Court was appointed guardian of the minor heirs of the late Philip Faulk as follows:
Benjamin Lambeth, Phillip Lambeth, John Lambeth, Elizabeth Lambeth, Mary Lambeth, Jackson Lambeth
Daniel Long, Joseph F. Long, Rheuben Long, Mary Ann Long, Priscilla Long, Richard Long, Gabriel Long,
Euros Lay, Washington Lay, Elias Lay, Dorcas Lay, Elizabeth Lay
William Long, Creesey ? Long, Isaac Long, Elias Long, Gabriel Long
Richard Faulk, Calvin Faulk, Rebecca Faulk,
William Marlow, Jesse Marlow, John Marlow, Abraham Marlow, Priscilla Marlow, Mary Ann Marlow, Martha Marlow.
Keziah Long b. 1816 is not mentioned in this list - she was the natural daughter of Gabriel Long Sr and a black woman.

Faulk, Phillip: b. 1760 d a 2 -- 1825 m 1) Mary Hinnant PS NC
Philip Faulk, nmi, served in the War of 1812, in Major Lillington's Detachment, North Carolina Militia. Rank Induction Private, Rank discharge Private. Roll-Box 70, Roll 60. This might be his son Philip Lemuel Faulk.
In October 1981 CBS (Charles B. Schweizer) visited the area & found it above most flooding. The area is being farmed by the Long family, whose ancestors bought it from the Phillip Faulk estate. James Faulk, who farmed there some years ago, pointed out a spot high on a hill in a field and stated he understood that it had been a cemetery, and said that no crops would grow there.
Philip Faulk, Sr. had at least ten children and his descendants live in the South and West. References include census

SWAMP HOUSE PLANTATION was named this way before Phillip Faulk was around. John Smith Sr. got it from the old Blount tax bills, then John Giles Smith Jr. sold out what his father did not, before he left this area to Phillip Faulk...there is an Ivy Plantation that connects to Swamphouse Plantation..it covers the land we call East Indigo Falts today. The slave dug out canals from the Waccamaw River to flood the area to grow Indigo inthe mid 1700's, like Henry Cannon's Cattal Bay drainage his slaves dug. All these are still visible but not in use. Cannon's are still open-- these indigo fields canals are dammed up with dirt that was removed off and on for flooding - indigo grows in water. Rice was grown but none after 1800.

We think the unknown daughter who married Benjamin Lambert Sr. was b. abt 1775 - this would most likely set Philip Faulk's birth year back to around 1750-1755. The unk. daugher was probably born in Dobbs, now Johnston and Wayne, County, since Philip and his brother did move to Bladen (now Columbus) Co in abt 1784. Her name is most likely Ary.
A possible scenario: He met Mary Hinnant in Johnston (then Dobbs) Co and married her there. Daughter Ary most likely was born in Johnston (then Dobbs) Co.
