Searching for information regarding Joseph Fallon's parents. I do know that he was a prisoner in Joliet Il circa 1920's. He escaped and was later gunned down by Chicago police Feb.24,1930. On his death certificate our last name is misspelled as "Fallen". Cook County Illinois Death certificate #6006071. The officer involved in the shoot out was named John J Ryan and it occurred Feb.24,1930 at 11:30 am at 1598 Clybourn St. Chicago, IL. His life is was an amazing tale. I only wish I had information regarding his family. I don't know if he had siblings, etc. I do know that he had only one child, my grandfather Robert Fallon. Any information on Joseph would be great appreciated.
