I am looking for the parents of Adam J. Finch. Adam was born ca. 1815 in GA or SC. On June 2, 1828, Adam and Sidney Finch were orphans in Clarke County, Alabama. Ruby Finch Thompson believed that Adam J. Finch was the son of Brothers Finch and Margaret, but I have found no proof of this assumption.
On September 17, 1840, Adam J. Finch and Amanda Parkman were married in Clarke Co., Alabama. Amanda, daughter of Wiley Parkman, was born ca. 1825 in Edgefield County, South Carolina, and she died before 1870 in Louisiana. The children of Adam and Amanda were Emily "Emma", Georgiana, William Parkman, Jennie and Frances.
Adam and Amanda were living in Sumter County, Alabama in 1850. In 1860, they were living in Morehouse Parish, LA. In 1870, Adam lived in Marion, Union Parish, Louisiana. In 1880, Adam was living with his daughter Emily in Morehouse Parish, Louisiana. Emily Finch was the widow of Levi Jefferson Cole.
