Glad ta see yer back...
Well....for us it got complicated a bit because...
When they moved around and got to Arkansas I guess they changed the pronunciation to "Fawlin" but they knew themselves that it was "Fallon" (Like AL)...
I think they just let other people say it like they wanted to just to keep things simple...then during the WW2 era when our family moved up to St Louis we started to say "Fallon" instead of "Fawlin" because St Louians were more accustomed to Irish sounding last names...and in my life (just 36 years) ever since I could say my name...I have always said "Fallon"...even the older folks from Arkansas say "Fallon" we have always known it was "Fallon" but we just don't get all riled up when someone says "Fawlin" the only way we have got our feathers ruffled was when someone said "Failin" we then sternly correct them when they say that.
hehehe thanks for your contribution to the poll Jack.
