    Please note that a better title would have been Folloe.

    I have searched through hundreds of dictionaries and none of them have it:

    OneLook is a useful site for things like this- it searches hundreds of online dictionaries with a single search.

    Re: inquiry

    I am sure it is a typo for "follow." That is what Google suggests.

    The letters are next to each other on many keyboards, so it's a logical typo.
