Catholic Families

Fort Wayne, Indiana

Google maps may be slow to load - wait for colored pins to show

My only known Catholic ancestor families are my SCHNEIDER grandparent families. A sister Helen to my grandfather Milo FOLLIS married John HEINY and became Catholic.

A branch of the Samuel KELKER family in Fort Wayne, Indiana, brother to my great-great-grandmother Amanda KELKER TIMMONS, became Catholic around the turn of the Twentieth Century, although originally they were German Lutheran in Pennsylvania.

The distant Isaac FALLIS and Susannah MARTIN family in Missouri has descendants that became Catholic in Missouri although most FALLIS families passing through Kentucky were Baptist. One descendant related that her mother was adamant their Fallis line was Catholic, although all evidence shows the contrary.

Genealogy research is never complete, important details might be missing, and often contains errors, so let me know if your research contradicts mine. My Indiana and Ohio family research comes from conversations with relatives, scrapbooks, library research, online records, visits to courthouses, final resting places on family farms and cemeteries. Families in other states rely mostly on the research of others. Links to other web sites often change then won't work, so if you find broken links, have additional information on any families, corrections, photos, or anything to add to the history of our families, please leave a Comment in my Guest book, join my Follis Families on Facebook page for updates and new discoveries, or send an Email. The Wayback Machine archives most old web pages so copy and paste the broken URL address to find the missing 404 pages that disappeared.
