Still doing research off and on about Redmond Fallin who settled on the Sandy Creek of the Dan River in 1745 (what is now the Danville area?) of Pittsylvania County, Virginia.
The County had been a part of other earlier and larger Counties like Brunswick and Lunenburg counties, so watch out for that too.
I think the name may have been other than Redmond and that Redmond was a middle name, his name may have been "Charles Redmond Fallin" but we don't know, we only know that he went by Redmond Fallin. This name was sometimes spelled Falling or Fawling or even Fallen or Fallon.
His wife's name was Susana or Sussanah ... but that's all we know about her. This family would later marry into the Gwin or Quinn family and also the "Little" family.
They stayed in Pittsylvania County Virginia until about 1830 then moved west to Tennessee. By 1860 they were in Arkansas.
What we are looking for really is the period of 1645 to 1745 which is something of a mystery. We may be related to a Charles Fallin from Northumberland County or to a Redmond Fallin of Dorchester County Maryland, OR we may have been new arrivals to Virginia or Maryland by about 1735 ... coming from Ireland. Rumor (rumour) has it that the earlier Fallin family of Northumberland County was From Ireland and then went to Barbados and THEN went to Virginia and was there in Virginia between 1640 to 1660 or so.
All I know is that my earliest proven ancestor was "Redmond Fallin/g" and was on the sandy creek of the dan river in virginia by 1745 ... where he came from before then is only speculation right now. I do plan on doing a DNA project with some of the descendants of the Northumberland Virginia Fallin family to see if we are really related, in that way I can rule in or out at least one branch of the family.
Also ... Merry Christmas!
