Lance Fallin (born in calif) son of: Larry Fallin (born in Arkansas)son of: George Minor Fallin Jr. (ark) son of: George Minor Fallin Sr. (ark) son of: Edward Townes Fallin (Born in Maury County Tennessee) (Near Columbia, Tenn on the Duck River)...Civil war veteran....son of:
Littlebury Fallin (Fallen, Falling etc.) born near Danville, Pittsylvania County, Va.)
Son of Redmond Fallin son of Edmond Fallin son of Redmond Fallin
who was the son of Redmond Fallin Sr. and he was granted over 1,000 acres of land in Pittsylvania County in 1745? (I'm doing this all from memory right now)
I think this Redmond was from Maryland and had previously been married....research still pending...wives would have been Rachel and darn...can't think of the other name right now.
I can't prove where "this" earliest Redmond Fallin came from...but I have been trying to work on that in my spare time....whenever I have spare time that is.
I am almost sure that this family is an Irish Family in its earliest origins...however they have since mixed with Scots, Welsh, Germans, English etc. etc.
I also think they are mainly from the area of Ballinasloe, Ireland (Home of Europe's oldest Horse fair)...but...this is just a hunch and nothing more...I can say that we have many stories about the men in our family being very good with horses down to my dad...going back before the "Civil War" (War Betweeen the States)..also it seems that the Fallon (Fallin) family in Ireland comes from that general area in ancient times.
Ah...but I need to work state-side before I leap across the Ocean....right now I am pretty well stuck in Pittsylvania County, Virginia and I'm trying to link with Northumberland County in Virginia and Dorchester County in Maryland....that is what I am stuck on now.....if we can link all this together, and if we can link positively to "Darby Fallin" in Dorchester County, Maryland...then we *DO* have a postive link to Ireland.....then we will have a difficult time once we get to the Ireland Research because lots of pre 1800's records are misplaced, burned, missing, scattered....etc etc...I know enough to know that it is complicated and tedious and darn near impossible...unless we have a foreign ancestor who was born *after* 1850...which in our case...we don't
