William Faulkner's grandfather, John Wesley Thompson (J.W.T.) Falkner, was nicknamed the "Young Colonel," out of respect for his father, the "Old Colonel," but the younger Falkner in fact never fought in any war. J.W.T. Falkner, the first Falkner to live in Oxford, founded the First National Bank of Oxford in 1910. The bank is still in operation today.
