William Fallon, a progressive farmer of Boon Lake township, was born in McLeod county, Minnesota, Sept. 11, 1869, son of John and Agnes Fallon. William Fallon attended the district school and took up farming near Brainerd on a farm of 80 acres, twenty of which were broke. There were no buildings on the place and Mr. Fallon made extensive improvements and then sold this land and rented a farm in the neighborhood of Hutchinson. After two years he came to Boon Lake township and purchased 160 acres from Hugh Carrigan. This land was not improved. Mr. Fallon has erected a fine modern house, large barn, silo and other buildings. His barn was destroyed by fire and was replaced by the present fine structure. He has served as school clerk and is a member of the Roman Catholic church. Mr. Fallon was married Oct. 27, 1903, to Mary Carrigan, daughter of Hugh Carrigan and the union has been blessed with four children: Charles, Josephine, Raymond and Stella.
