John Waller

John Waller HouseCaptain John Waller is given credit for being the founder of Falmouth. He was born December 27, 1758 in Stafford County, Virginia, a son of John Waller Sr. and served in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. He was made captain during the Battle of Brandywine on the field by General George Washington. Most enlistees did so for 3-month spans, because of time required to plant and harvest their crops. Of note here is the fact that Waller served seven years in the Army. He came to Kentucky with his brother, Edward Waller and George Lewis in 1783 and settled in Pendleton County.
