Re: Finley families emigration to America

In Reply to: Finley families emigration to America by Daniel Brooks of 624

have written a short biography of Dr Samuel Finley, who was principal of Princeton, for the forthcoming Dictionary of Irish Biography, and I am checking some facts before I submit it to the copyeditor.
He is said to have been one of seven pious brothers, but I have no names, and the parents' names are not listed. He was born in 1715 in co, Armagh, and emigrated in 1734. One of the messages on this forum mentions a group of Armagh Finleys , who look quite like this family, but I think the dates are wrong. Could they be a previous generation, or is there a mistake in the birthdates?
I'd like to know more about Samuel Finley and his connections; looking forward to hearing from someone

Linde L.
