Finley family is in the line of REDDEN FIELDS who md. SUSANNAH FINLEY in 1818 Robertson Co. TN then moved to Carroll Co. TN. After Susannah Finley Fields died then Redden Fields married Matilda Crockett and lived in Gibson Co. TN.

The FINLEYS are back in the area of Buncombe Co. NC earlier so it could be that your Mary Fields in the line of JAMES FIELDS and wife SARAH / SALLY HINSON FIELDS, the parents of Redden Fields.

James Fields died in Anson Co. NC about 1815 and then Sarah / Sally Hinson Fields moved with her grown children to Carroll Co. TN area. She died there. James Fields b. 1771 NC and d. 1815 Anson Co. NC. He is son of J. Smith Fields b. abt. 1740 Onslow Co. NC and wife Elizabeth Unknown. When Smith Fields died in Anson Co. NC he left a will naming his wife and children. This FIELD family is from England to Barbados to Onslow Co. NC to Anson Co. NC to Carroll Co. TN etc.

I show that SUSANNAH FINLEY b. April 13, 1797 in Buncombe Co. NC, who married REDDEN FIELDS on April 02, 1818 Robertson Co. TN. Susannah Finley is daughter of WILLIAM FINLEY and NANCY TREADWAY but I have no other information on them. Perhaps you can pick up the trail of the FINLEYS in Robertson Co. TN. where Susannah Finley married Redden Fields. Interesting is that Matilda Crockett the 2nd wife of Redden Fields had father DAVY CROCKETT who had a first wife named FINLEY as well. His 1st wife was Mary Polly Finley b. 1788 Hamblen TN. Mary Polly Finley died by 1816 Davy Crockett had married Elizabeth Margaret Patton and lived in Gibson Co. TN and their dau. Matilda Crockett b. 1821 in Lincoln Co. TN. Matilda Crockett married Redden Fields after 1862 in Gibson Co. TN.
