Thomas Fallin was born November 26th, 1771 in Wicomico Parish, Northumberland. He was the son of William Fallin and Sarah Eskridge. Thomas' father died in 1783 and named Thomas in his will. Thomas was to receive an equal portion of the slaves owned by his grandmother after her death and then after the death of his mother. Thomas was also given his father's gun and the second foal born to his mare.

Several marriage records exist for Thomas Fallin. In 1795 he married Betesy Gibbons, in 1798 Polley "Mary" Haynie and Elizabeth Davis in 1806. Another spouse may have been Nancy Opie Davenport.

A 1810 census record in Lancaster County names Thomas Fallin as the head of a household and states that he owns six slaves, but the ages of the family members seem to be too old to be a correct match.

Thomas may have served in Northumberland County's 37th VA Militia during the War of 1812. There is a record of a private Thomas Fallin in Way's Company.

The 1820 census in Richmond County provides a better match. Household members counted were: one male under 10, one male 16-18, one male 16-25, one male over 45, one female 10-15, one female 16-25, one female 26-44 and one female slave over 45. Three people were listed as working in agriculture.

In 1830 the family was still in Richmond County. Household members were: one male 50-59, one female 15-19 and one female 50-59.

Again in 1840 Thomas was listed as the head of a Richmond County household. Counted were: one male 5-9, two males 10-14, one male 30-39, one male 60-69, one female 20-29. One person was marked as working in agriculture and one adult was listed as not being able to read or write. Apparently Thomas's wife had died and one of his children had moved in with him along with their family.

Thomas is thought to have died about 1848. He does not appear to have written a will and his burial location is unknown.
