Bio and Links
Bio Photo Charles Finnell (1762-1842) is buried outside the village of Mount Airy in Randolph County, Missouri. Born in Orange County, Virginia, he served as a teenager in Washington's army and was present at the British surrender at Yorktown. Later, as a Baptist preacher, he helped found churches in both Kentucky and Missouri.

I am one of Charles Finnell's many descendants.

Please contact me if you'd like to swap info or to correct biographies I may have gotten wrong.

I will happily transfer ownership of memorials of folks I'm not closely related to. Let me know.

Verna Aden
Thanks about the info re: Verna Ester Young Aden's memorial. I have added her to John Alvin Aden's memorial so that she appears as one of his wives. Her step daughters, Marsha and Beverly, have provided me with info. I had met Verna several times. She visited my mother, Lillian Aden Leenerts, when she resided at the Lewistown nursing home in Mo. I have been working on genealogy for over 6 years and have compiled quite a bit of info on my mother's relatives. Thanks again.
Carol Leenerts Rossel,

Thanks for posting this finding.

Take care

RE: Claude Miley
Hello David,
Unfortunately I never met John Finnell or I wasn't old enough to remember. I would have been about 3 years old when he died. Actually the only relative on my grandmother Ruth (Miley) Poetzman that I remember is her sister my great aunt Tirzah. I'm hoping to be able to locate more information so that I can add/link their info to their parents.
I've only started researching my family's history and find it quite interesting. I will be looking for some old pictures to upload to their (findagrave) memorial.

Thank you,

RE: Claude Miley
Claude Leroy Miley was my great great grandfather.
I found in the 1910 census the info on his children at that time. My grandmother Ruth Ophelia (Miley) Poetzman was born in 1912 and believe she was the youngest child. Info from the 1910 census lists these children:
Paul L Miley (age 10, aprox b: 1900)
Veryl E Miley (age 8, aprox b: 1902)
Tirzah L Miley (age 6, aprox b: 1904)

I'd appreciate if you could add these 4 children's names to Claude's memorial. I will continue searching for more info on Claude's and Luella's children to create their own memorials.

Thank you,
Dawn (Poetzman) Bosserman
