  • ID: I1457
  • Name: James Finley
  • Sex: M
  • Christening: Abt 1720 Chester Co(?),PA
  • Death: Bef 10 AUG 1802 in Wythe Co,VA
  • Note:
    !Stout thinks his wife was Agnes and they were in Augusta County, VA in 1747. Messer claims James was born 1721 in Chester County, PA and moved to Augusta County, VA in 1737.

    !Monette thinks James (1720-1780?) married Agnes and moved to VA in 1742. Monette also quotes France, "Of James Finley who moved to Virginia, 1740, died 1780, wife Agnes, I first thought he was a son of James and Elizabeth (Patterson) Finley, but since find that James, son of James, died in Cumberland County, Penn."

    !James, Sr. and James, Jr. first found on Crockett's list of tithables in area from Wm Sayers to Head of Holstein in 1771 (Kegley, New River Thithes, p. 9). On 3 August 1772 he entered 191 acres on Read Creek (VSL, reel 33, Book C:212). DAR application of Margaret Weston Suiter (#46287) of Wytheville (aged 90+ in 1992), says this James married Agnes Reid and is the one who wrote will dated 23 July 1799; proved 10 August 1802 in Wythe County (WB 1:220). His will refers to only son, James Finley [most likely Capt. James Finley] and to "well beloved grandson, William Finley, sole executor rest of estate." The will of Capt. James Finley, written 15 October 1800; proved 15 April 1801 in Wythe County (WB 1:176), does refer to son, William Finley.
