Delaware County, Iowa
Falconer, the third in order of birth in his father's family, is numbered
among the enterprising farmers of Delaware county. He owns one hundred and
eighty-seven acres of valuable farm land located five miles west of Ryan, near
Robinson. He is living on the old homestead, however, and managing the place for
his father, who makes his home with the son. Charles E. Falconer was married to
Miss Adelaide Rainbird, a daughter of James and Margaret Rainbird, both natives
of Ireland. The home of Mr. and Mrs. Falconer has been blessed with two
children, Opal and Wilbur, who are with their parents. The family is one of the
old and highly respected ones of the community and the hospitality of their home
is enjoyed by many friends."
