ANDREW JACKSON FAULK (1814-1898)

Andrew Jackson Faulk was born at Milford, Pike County, Pennsylvania, on November 26, 1814. In 1815, his parents moved to Kittanning, in Armstrong County, where Faulk was educated. He later learned the printing trade, studied law, and took an active part in local politics. In 1861, President Abraham Lincoln appointed him post-trader to the Yankton Indian Agency in the Dakota Territory. In 1864, he returned to Pennsylvania and engaged in the oil business until 1866 when President Andrew Johnson appointed him governor of Dakota. He served in that office until 1869, when President Ulysses S. Grant appointed John A. Burbank to succeed him. Faulk continued to live in Yankton until his death, and was active in local politics and in the opening and development of the Black Hills. He served as an advisor to the peace commission under General Sherman which concluded the treaty of Fort Laramie in 1868. He was appointed clerk of the U.S. District Court, Second Judicial District, in November 1873, and served until 1881.
