McFalls of North Carolina
Posted by: Lisa Brockmeier Southard Date: October 16, 2001 at 05:39:26
  of 245

I'm descended through the McFalls / Brockmeier line and would like to share information. I'm told that my great grandfather, William McFalls, was a full blooded Cherokee Indian. William was killed in Cincinnati Ohio in 1941 when a steel beam fell on him at work. The rest of the early information I have listed came from a book by Danny McBee called "Descendants of John McFalls Sr., One Man's Search for Family". I'm trying to find this book on file to download but haven't had much luck. The later information came from interviewing my family and records in the Asheville Records Office. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
