The Faulkner family line has been in America since the 1600's, origin Wales.
The Faulkner clan arrived in America (Maryland) 22 January 1665 on the ship Agreement, setting out from Bristol. Their passage was paid for with 300 pounds of tobacco. This family consisted of John Faulkner (son of William Faulkner "citizen & draper of London" and Elizabeth Filmer, daughter of Sir Edward Filmer & Dame Elizabeth Argall) and Elizabeth (daughter of Reginald Filmer & Jane Travis), and their children John, Thomas & Francis.

Members of the Faulkner line served in the American Revolution. A cousin from this family line is currently researching from this line of the tree. Continuous documentation for this lineage currently exists back until 1625 CE. Most of this line identifies with Freemasonry. There are several "Hiram" Faulkners among them.

Will & Sue (Turner) Grenwald immigrated to America in the mid-1800's from Europe.
Both were Jewish and identified as Jews, identified with Judaism. They were also practising Jews per oral family histories per the children of Elizabeth Grenwald.
The surname is spelled inconsistently in family records: Grenwald, Grenwalt, Greenwald, and/or Grenwaldt. Elizabeth Grenwald had a brother named Noah Grenwald, and at least 2 sisters. References to Will disappear around 1850. The family name Grenwald and its various spellings have been researched by family members without success.
