Reuben Finney
1802 - 1890
Son of George
(This appears to be a replacement marker and in good shape. According to information given by his great-granddaughter (Bertha Whitt Wright), Reuben was born 31 Aug 1804 and died 07 Mar 1890. His parents were George Finney and Phoebe Puckett)

Rebecca Johnson Finney
1811 - 1866
First Wife of Reuben Finney
(This appears to be a replacement marker and in good shape. The date of death is incorrect, as Reuben married his second wife in 1858 after Rebecca’s death. Most likely when the information was transferred from the old stone, it was copied incorrectly, or wasn’t legible. According to written sources, the date of Rebecca’s death was 22 Apr 1856. The bible of Samuel Johnson lists her date of birth as 12 Jan 1812. She was the daughter of John Johnson and Elizabeth Fletcher Johnson)

Nancy Finney
1814 - 1908
(This is a Lebanon Funeral Home marker. Nancy Grizzle was Reuben Finney’s second wife. They were married 18 Jan 1858. Nancy was the daughter of William and Rebecca Grizzle)
