Hi Frances,

It sounds like you have a good line of research. I'm guessing that you tie in to those old Annamessex and Dorchestor County Fallin/Fallon lines in the beginning of the 1700's and possibly late 1600's.

There seems to have been a few different lines of Fallin families in Maryland and Virginia, and I am starting to suspect that my branch probably arrived around 1733-ish through the port of Philadelphia and then down to Monocacy Hundred, then down through Virginia with the Little Family and others on to Danville, Virginia (Pittsylvania County) and of course on to North Carolina and beyond.

We might be all related, of course, at some point, especially if we all are Irish or Scots-Irish (on the Fallin side at least). But for now I am seeing what appears to be about 3 different lines of "Fallin" families in the south, at least 3 lines, if not 5. Redmond and Fallin are both and were both .... common names from Ireland, although spelled differently at times, still ... very common names.

Just in County Galway alone .... Fallon or Fallin seems to be like Smith and Jones. I forgot how many diff Fallin/Fallon families there were ... just in Galway today.

I'd venture to say there are still more Fallin's outside of Ireland (Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand & South America etc.)

After all ... the liberator of Chile was "Bernardo O'Higgins"

So ... I have to be very careful at guessing a whole lot, I'm at a period of time in the research where I have to scrutinize a lot more.

72 years young eh? Cool! Also married for over 50 years!

Wow! Congratulations! That's awesome!

Well ... talk to ya / post to ya ... next time.

Take care,
Lance T. Fallin
