The earliest confirmed record I found of your Redmond Fallin was 6 March 1745 in Brunswick Co VA (the parent county of Hallifax, Lueneburg, and Pittsylvania Co) when he was assigned as a road surveyor.
He's definitely on Sandy Creek by 10 Nov 1747, when he's listed in survey books near Abraham Little.
"Redmond" is such an unusual name that it seems likely he was connected to the two Redmond Fallins (Jr and Sr) of Dorchester and Prince Georges Co MD earlier in the 1700s.
http://genforum.genealogy.com/md/dorchester/messages/255.html shows that the Dorchester Co Redmond Fallin was a Quaker and must have died before 1752, when his wife, Rachel, was listed as the administrator of an estate.
I haven't found any evidence that your Redmond Fallin or my Abraham Little of Pittsylvania Co were Quakers.
However, Samuel Harris, one of the early Baptist Leaders in Virginia, was a neigbor in the 1750s of your Redmond Fallin and my Abraham Little.
It's possible there was a loose community of non-conformists (Baptist, Quakers, etc) who settled on Sandy Creek, but I haven't been able to prove it.
http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/swift/swift0.html details the "Flower Swift militia of western Virginia. made up in part of Quakers, Baptists, and other non-conformists.
An Isaac Little was a member of Swift's militia. I believe he was born in Pittsylvania Co to the Littles who were neighbors of your Redmond Fallin.
An earlier Flower Swift was the constable of the Monocacy Hundred in Maryland, where Redmond Fallin appeared on a tax list in 1733.
All speculation, but such is the spice of genealogy.
Best Regards, Leo
I really miss you Leo (moment of silence here)
Blessings to your family,
