Birth: Jan. 14, 1828
Tennessee, USA
Death: Nov. 8, 1903
Sonoma County
California, USA

Where Keziah came from is still not certain. Henry Head and Elizabeth Ann Sanford had a daughter Penelope, who had a daughter by "Unknown Cherokee" and she was named Keziah Head for lack of any certain surname. (Penelope moved on to marry William A. Lauderdale in 1932, Sumner, Tennessee.)
Keziah wed John Finley of Indiana on September 5, 1844, in Pine Ridge, Montgomery County, Arkansas. She succumbed to tuberculosis at age 75.

Keziahs children were: Samuel Emanuel Finley; John William Finley (1848 1850); John Jay Finley; Henry Head Finley; Nancy Caroline (Finley) Keithly; Elizabeth Finetta Finley (1858 1887); James Preston Finley; Marenda A Finley; Jefferson Davis Finley; Andrew Jackson Finley; William D. Finley; Martha E. Finley; and Alvin Wesley Finley (Aug 18, 1870 CA - November 26, 1950, San Mateo County).

Like the identity of her mother, multiple data appears for Keziah. She also is claimed to be the daughter of John Head (1798, Georgia - 1846) and Penelope (1812, Sumner, Tennessee - ) or Rachel Anderson (1805, Tennessee - ). She is also shown as expiring in Sebastopol, and August 11, 1903. Her marriage is also claimed May 9, 1844 in Arkansas.
