Hi Barbara!
I have been getting help from the same guy that contacted you. He shared info with me that one of your relatives is a NY State Supreme Ct. Judge. I am not sure if we are related, but think all Fallon's are related back in Ireland at some point! My Great grandmother Ellen Fallon had a son who is NY State Supreme Ct. Judge Arthur Cromarty (Ret). The Suffolk Cty Court House is named after him. Go to:

If we are relayed, seems like Fallon blood does well in law! You can contact me thru my reg email at: royblizzard@peoplepc.com

I know I had a Fallon relative who was a water commissioner. My grandfather said he was involved somehow with the fall of Tammany Hall. Rothstein was behind the fall. As you know, your Billy Fallon represented Rothstein. Also, my Great grandmother's Ellen Fallon's sister married a Strain. They had a daughter named Drucilla Strain. Somehow, she became a Ziegfeld Folly! No one knows why! She is listed as one of the most beautiful show girls in Broadway history...see PBS Website under Ziegfeld. Go to:

http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.pbs.org/wnet/broadway/hello/images/revue_pic2.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.pbs.org/wnet/broadway/hello/revue.html&h=223&w=168&sz=6&hl=en&start=7&um=1&usg=__QxHZN4jgB4i8hGhJMXusqVtuYow=&tbnid=BgAEl8jUWuGRoM:&tbnh=107&tbnw=81&prev=/images%3Fq%3Ddrucilla%2Bstrain%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26channel%3Ds%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26sa%3DN

The link? Maybe a cousin got her in that new Ziegfeld??? Fanny Brice was a Folly...her hubby was Rothstein. Of course, I am looking for links. Anyway, Drucilla was once engaged to Victor Mature, but married Charlie Teagarden. He was a famous jazz musician. His more famous brother was Jack Teagarden (Trombone)...played with Louis Armstrong and Paul Whiteman orchestra. My Fallon's lived in NYC in Harlem before it was bad. They were immaculate in their dressing and style. They used to go into the Ritz to have lunch and so on. Where are your Fallon's buried? Maybe we can see if we are related and if not close...just how far off in the tree.

Nice to meet you! Help is appreciated!

Donna
