Samuel Fallows (December 13, 1835 – September 5, 1922) was an American clergyman. Fallows was born in England and graduated from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1859. During the American Civil War, he fought in the Union Army, rising to Colonel of the 40th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment, and brevetted Brigadier General. He was a Methodist pastor following the war, though in 1875 he joined the Reformed Episcopal Church, where he became a bishop in 1876. He was a public figure notable for his efforts in public education, prison reform, and the temperance movement.[1][2]

He was buried at Forest Home Cemetery,[3] in Forest Park, Chicago.
