Roger, thanks for answering; your info was interesting. The only thing I know about my Jesse is that his middle initial is T., and he was buried in Tallapoosa County.We were always told the story that he was imprisoned for killing a man with a hoe b/c the man wass trying to steal his mule. Jesse was later pardoned, as the story goes, b/c the killing was ruled self-defense, but died one day before his release. Does any of that sound familiar? Yes, we do grow rice farther down south, but also have lots of crawfish farms. Taste much better than rice! I never heard of any Fallins in W. Carroll Parish. We used to live in East Carroll. but were transfered there. It's not a Fallin stonghold. I'll look into it,though. This is so interesting to me! My first time to do this; can you tell?
