My Fallins are from La.(originally from Tallpoosa Co,Al, but I can't seem to connect with Jesse Fallin who is our ancestor). Down here, we say Fallin, like Al,also. I do correct people when then they say Fall(like all)in. I always wondered what Fallin meant. I hoped it wasn't related to the word felon, even tho I did hear that Jesse killed a man over a mule way back when. Got to protect yourself and your family!
