Note: Charles has done a huge amount of research on this.  There are hours and hours of time put into this project. 

 

If you can add any info to this page, please contact Falls County Coordinator or Charles.  I will be more than happy to add it to this list.  Also, please send me the source for your info.  Charles would like to have for his records too. 

 

I always like to give credit where credit is due.  I will put an * at the end of the info that someone other than Charles gave info on.  I will be adding your name and who you contributed info for on to the bottom of his list.  I don’t want to confuse the work of Charles and the work of you, the submitter on this.   –kc
