Lineage: The Fourth Generation
Note: With this generation we will leave the format of the Folsom Family Association site (with many thanks to Harry Folsom for the work he has done in putting this all together), since our line is not mentioned in their further line of descent, as it would make it all too confusing. We will keep the generation numbers, so the generations from John1 Folsom will remain intact. Our lines will now commence, beginning again with the individual number of each person beginning again at one.
