Patsy Finch(Elswick)was the only daughter of Nathiel Finch and Molly/Milly, Nathiel died before 2 Nov 1773, it talks about the will of Nathiel in 1774 and that Molly was his widow. It is interesting that they never talked about her last name or maiden name in the document. She is believed to be 1/2 Cherokee. I am thinking of doing the DNA thing on Ancestry.com to help me figure this out.
Lets see lots to go on, Molly married 2nd John Elswick and they had a few daughters. Molly or Milly is believed to be the 1/2 Cherokee woman you seek. Elswick was then given to the other children of the second husband, don't know if for sure if Martha or Patsy ever used Elswick growing up as a last name. Do you have any photo's of Moses and Lousia Sowards or America Jane Sowards Ward. I have some of Moses and Lousia. She looks some what like an indian lady of her age.
