Fallin Family History - from Ireland to Missouri and beyond

Updated May 21, 2013

About Our Family Research


Researching the possibility of a connection
from Redmond Fallon of the Monocosie Hundred in Maryland to Redmond Falling (Fallon, Fallen, Fallin) of Danville, VA

1. Did Redmond Fallon of Maryland immigrate to Chester County, Pa. first before going to Md.? (probably)
Then did the whole Monocosie Hundred (Quaker?) community go to the Danville, Virginia area (Ringgold?) all together? (at least some did)

Pitttsylvania County, Virginia was actually Brunswick, Lunenburg and Halifax counties BEFORE it was Pittsylvania.

2. Is there a connection between the 1670's Charles of
Northumberland to any of the Maryland families?

(No, we have completed a DNA both the Northumberland County Virginia Charles Fallin descendants and the Pittsylvania County Virginia Redmond Fallin descendants, we are not really connected.)

3. We will need lots of maps of early 1700's Virginia and late 1600's as well. How does this tie in to Northumberland county and then to Halifax/Pitts/Bruns/Lun counties?

(Redmond seems to have the migration pattern of Ireland>Philadelphia>Chester Co, PA>Lancaster Co, PA>Prince George's Co, MD>Fairfax Co, VA>Augusta Co, VA and then down to Brunswick Co, VA>Lunenburg Co, VA>Pittsylvania Co, VA>Maury Co. TN>Jackson Co, AR>Woodruff Co, AR>Clay Co. AR>St Louis, MO.>CA, AZ, NM

4. We would like the Eastern Shore Maryland descendants of Redmond Fallin to do a Ydna test to see if we match up (Dorchester County connected especially)

5. We would like to have an Irish person who themselves, their dad or their grandfather was born in Ireland and have a Redmond Fallon or Fallin etc connection do a Ydna test as well to confirm our STRONG Roscommon dna and paper trail guess work.

This is just for starters, I hope much more will come later.

Happy Ancestor Hunting
Lance T. Fallin
