William John FALOON
William was born in Ireland.
He married Mary Dillon (born in Ireland in 1875) at Lurgan, Armagh in 1911.
They had two sons & one daughter (who died in infancy).
The family emigrated to NZ in Mar 1921, arriving at Wellington before moving to Levin.
William was a farmer in Arapaepae Rd. He was only here for a short time before he died but made an impression, especially as a member of the Gospel Hall congregation.
His grandson was a noted racing car driver who was killed during the running of the 1972 Grand Prix at Pukekohe.
