I have always wondered if Robert Falwell was the brother of my ancestor Samuel Falwell. Samuel named one of his sons Robert.
Samuel Falwell was born in Buckingham County, Virginia around the year 1794. He was married in Albemarle county to Mary Ann Esque in 1830. He appears in the 1820 and 1830 Census of Virginia. Some time after that he moved his family to Fayette County, Tennessee. He died there in the year 1845. His wife, Mary, died around 1855. Sam and Mary had ten children together. There names are as follows:
All of the children died before having chldren of their own with the exception of my ancestor Andrew N. Falwell. Andrew moved into Arkansas around 1860 and established the Arkansas branch of Falwells.
