Redmond Fallin ... Quaker?
Posted by: Lance Fallin (ID *****2657) Date: September 08, 2010 at 08:31:04

I've been seeing something about the Monocacy Hundred or Monocosie Hundred and the "Flower Swift Militia"

Redmond Fallin was on a 1733 tax list in Prince George's County Maryland ... Monocacy or Monocosie Hundred (a known Quaker area at that time).

The Swift Family was on the list, and also the Little Family

and .... we know that this group of Quakers and other non-conformists picked up and moved to the Danville area and even across the line into North Carolina.

All circumstantial ... but pretty strong when you look at the names/times/places/movements .... a whole lot of strong coincidences are starting to add up to probability.

Now ... I'll keep digging at this ... but I think this Redmond Fallin may have been the son of Redmond and Rachel (Millis) Fallin of Dorchester County, Maryland.

Rachel and Redmond had property it seems across 3 different counties? Research pending.

If ... this is the case ... we then have a proven linkage to the MARYLAND Fallin family (as I had originally suspected).

or .... We could be yet another offshoot that came from Ireland at a later date than the Tidewater and East Shore families ... and entered through Philadelphia and then down to the Monocacy Hundred in Prince George's County, Maryland (kinda close to DC).

It is starting to look like Our Redmond is not directly related to/ descended from the Charles Fallin group from 1600's Tidewater (coastal Virginia).

Definitely looking like a Maryland connection, but seperate from the Dorchester bunch? or Descended from ?

I'll be working on that ... and maybe for a long time too.

Happy Ancestor Hunting!
