Birth: May 9, 1817
Onondaga County
New York, USA
Death: Feb. 25, 1874
Porter County
Indiana, USA

Born and brought up near Syracuse, New York, Charles G. Finney as a young man was ambitious to become a landholder, and knowing that in the newer states much greater advantages were offered a man with limited means, he came to Indiana, locating in Porter county at an early day. Locating just east of Valparaiso, he cleared and improved a farm, on which he spent his remaining days, actively engaged in agricultural pursuits. He married Elizabeth Bartholomew, who came from Ohio to Porter county when a child, and here resided until her death, at the venerable age of eighty-three years. They were the parents of six children, all of whom grew to years of maturity, as follows: George, Ella, Charles, Lutie, William and Stephen L.
