Pioneer Greene County, Ohio to Wabash County, Indiana
Jacob FALLIS was born before 1800 probably in Kentucky married Hannah KINGERY December 22, 1818 in Greene County, Ohio. Jacob Fallis' tombstone says he died August 10, 1824 age 17 years, 9 months and 28 days born October 13, 1806 buried in the Fallis Pioneer Cemetery in Greene County, Ohio 3 miles from Bellbrook. Most likely he is my Jacob FALLIS son of Mery VAUGHAN and Isaac FALLIS. This Jacob could also be a son of Jacob FALLIS Jr. brother of Isaac, although I believe Jacob's son Jacob moved to Peru, Miami County, Indiana. Merle Rummel, who researches Union County, Indiana Church of Brethren families says "The Cholera epidemic was 1831-1832... came up from Cincinnati, and according to one account 'every family lost some.'" Father Isaac was a tanner so it is assumed son Jacob could have had a fatal accident helping tan animal hides into leather or some other unfortunate accident. Hannah (KINGERY) FOLLIS married Ginnethon KELLY September 22, 1832 in Greene County, Ohio. An April 26, 2005 Brethren-List email: 1830 was in the early days of a horrible Cholera Epidemic in this whole area - one local comment says: "every family lost some".

Hannah is buried near Catherine EIKENBERRY FALLIS, several of her FOLLIS grandchildren and near her sister Lucy KINGERY WHITENECK in the Mount Vernon Section of the relocated Mississinewa Memorial Cemetery.
