Fourth Generation

23. Jerah Lillibridge4 Finch (Deloss S3, James Bates2, Joshua1) was born in Lebanon, Madison Co, NY September 13, 1878. Jay died July 1, 1944 in Brookfield, Madison Co, NY, at 65 years of age.

He married Vinnie Pearl Croft December 25, 1900. Vinnie was born in Sangerfield, Oneida Co, NY December 25, 1877. Vinnie died April 28, 1919 in Brookfield, Madison Co, NY, at 41 years of age. He is recorded in the 1880 census with the first name spelled Jerah. He is age 1 at the time.

In the 1910 Census for Lebanon, Madison Co, NY there is a Jay L Finch age 31 in his first marriage of 11 years. His employment is a laborer for the Highway and he rents his home. By this I would guess that Jerah went by the name Jay. His wife Vinnie and 3 children Olive, Rita, and Kenneth are recorded here.

The Finch family apparently moved sometime between 1910 and 1917 from Lebanon to Brookfield.
