Here's a site about the town of Manheim:
http://www.rootsweb.com/~nyherkim/manheim.html

On this page about Salisbury, there is a statement about John Faville:
http://www.rootsweb.com/~nyherkim/salisbury.html
"John Faville and Cornelius Lamberson settled near Burrill's Corners about 1788, "

This next page has this whole entry about John Faville under "Early Settlers" section:
http://www.rootsweb.com/~nyherkim/salisbury/salisfeature.html
"Two or three families ventured to locate in this town during the Revolution, among whom were John Faville and Cornelius Lamberson, both natives of New Jersey. John Faville was born in 1749. In his early manhood he resided near Albany, and was engaged in running batteaux on the Mohawk. He was married during the war to Nancy Lewis, and soon after marriage settled in the southwestern part of Salisbury, on a farm now owned by Harry Burrell. His oldest child, Betsey, was born here in 1780, and his son William was born here December 19th, 1785. In 1795 he removed to the northwestern part of Manheim, where he erected a gristmill previous to 1800. He was the father of eight sons and four daughters, most of whom located in Salisbury and Manheim. Cornelius Lamberson located on the farm now owned and occupied by his grandson, Joshua W. Lamberson, in the southern part of the town. He became a resident of Salisbury soon after Mr. Faville. He reared a family of seven sons and one daughter. His second son, Charles, was born here in 1781."

DIRECTIONS TO FAVILLE FALLS

Faville Falls, Dolgeville

The cascading water over the rocks at Faville Falls is a favorite spot for many local residents to visit. A newly erected bridge for walkers makes the view more accessible and breathtaking. To get there take Spencer Street out of Dolgeville and stay straight on this road for several miles. After you pass over a small bridge there is a parking area to your left. This is Faville Falls.

Dolgeville is in the north-eastern part of the Town of Manheim, on East Canada Creek, near the border of south-western Fulton County. Beautiful countryside and a pretty historic town. I was recently (Sept 14) squired through the village and surrounding area by Bill and Nina McKerrow. Drive around and check out the early architecture.

There is also a street in Dolgeville called Faville Avenue.
