Places Named FOLLIS

View United Kingdom in a larger map

Follistown, Navan, County Meath is a town and civil parish which had 137 citizens in 1837 and 3,500 citizens in 1881 near Dublin, Ireland in northern County Meath in the Barony of Skreen indicating either a large number of FOLLIS families living there or a prominent FOLLIS family for which the town/parish was named. Interesting is Staffordstown another parish in the Barony of Skreen, about a half mile from Follistown, whose returns were included with Follistown since George Follis, son of Thomas, moved to Stafford County, Virginia - perhaps a desire to symbolically return to Follis ancestral land? In 1839 Follistown was known by the Catholic Parish name Jonestown.  An 1851 census first showed Folistown Poor Law Union Dunshaughlin also in County Meath in the Dunboyne Parish and Follisllagh on an 1885 atlas of County Galway. Follistown now appears in Google searches with homes for sale and area businesses. Wiki.FamilySearch.org has a Follistown page. Parlimentary Gazeteer of Ireland has information on Skreen.

Fallis Follis Mills

Fallis and Follis mills in 1760's Frederick County, Virginia need to be clarified for possible locations mentioning Richard Fallis and George Follis in this 2005 Virginia Department of Transportation Report. William Duckworth was the neighbor to Thomas Follis so raises the possibility that his name may really have been Thomas Richard Follis?

Places named FALLIS

FALLIS Cemetery in Mount Sterling, Switzerland County, Indiana. The web site only shows 2-4 of what appears to many tombstones. Samuel FALLIS and Rebecca ADAMS are buried there, along with son George Washington FALLIS and wife and their son George M. FALLIS and wife. Samuel was a first cousin to my fourth great-grandfather Isaac FALLIS of Greene County, Ohio. Samuel son of Samuel tombstone is buried in concrete hiding the death and birth information - it's why I don't like cemetery restorations done with the best intentions but lacking proper materials and methods.

FALLIS, Henry County, Kentucky, FALLIS Creek and the former FALLIS post office in FALLIS, Henry County, Kentucky near Brown's Bottom, Gratz and Montery. eBay did have an envelope with an 1898 Fallis KY postmark. Apparently named for descendants of George FALLIS, son of Isaac and Susanna MARTIN FALLIS, a first cousin of my Jacob FALLIS. A post office seal book indicates there should be letters in collections that would contain the Fallis Kentucky seal and it would be nice to have a copy for this web site and my files if anyone has seen or found one. I assume this FALLIS family is buried in the Fallis - Bryant - Knox Cemetery near Pleasureville.
