Jim Faulkinbury was born in Kermit Texas but has lived in Sacramento for many years. He graduated from CSU Sacramento with degrees in Mathematics and a MBA and also with a certificate in Project Management from UC Davis. He served for 4 ½ years as an Electronics Officer in the USAF where his last assignment was as the Staff Electronics Officer at a remote Space Tracking facility in eastern Turkey monitoring the Soviet space program at Kapustin Yar. In 1971 he began a 32-year career in IT with California State Government retiring in 2002 having served as the CFO and CIO of the State’s data Center, and head of the Statewide Project Management Office. He returned to State service in 2005-2007 to help the Schwarzenegger administration create the Dept. of Information Technology. His interest in genealogy started at age 13. In 1979 he started a side business as a professional genealogist and obtained his first 5-year credential as a Board Certified Genealogist in 1980. He joined the SAR in 2001 and has served in various positions at the Chapter, State, and National level ever since he first joined. He is currently the Genealogist General for the SAR. His talk will be about the life and times of his great-great uncle who served as a U.S. Deputy Marshall for the Western District of Arkansas and the Indian Territory under “Hanging” Judge Parker during the era known as the wild west.

Who We Are
The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) are direct descendants of those patriots that achieved the independence of the American people. The objectives of our organization are intended to perpetuate a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
The Purpose of Our Society
The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic United States 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks to maintain and extend:
  • the institutions of American freedom
  • an appreciation for true patriotism
  • a respect for our national symbols
  • the value of American citizenship
  • the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.
We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

Preserve the memory of those whose service and sacrifice during the American Revolution secured independence for the American people.
  • Unite and promote fellowship among their descendants.
  • Inspire them and the Community with a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
  • Encourage historical research in relation to the American Revolution.
  • Maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, an appreciation for true patriotism, a respect for our national symbols, and the value of American citizenship.
  • Promote the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Constitution.
