1. Joshua1 Finch was born New York March 1781. Joshua died June 13, 1849 in Otselic, Chenango Co, NY, at 68 years of age. This death date is somewhat in question since a Joshua appears in the 1850 census as a shoemaker age 68
He married Amy Bates 1802. Amy was born in Rhode Island May 27, 1782. Amy died May 9, 1874 at 91 years of age. The connection between Joshua and James is just an Educated Guess. The dates match and they are living tn the same town. He is listed in the 1850 census as having an occupation of Shoemaker.
The IGI (FamilySearch.com) has Joshua and Amy as James B Finch's parents.
Joshua Finch and Amy Bates had the following children:
2 i. Maria2 Finch was born in Dutchess Co, NY January 10, 1803. Maria died November 16, 1871 in Otselic, Chenango Co, NY, at 68 years of age.
3 ii. John Allen Finch was born January 1806.
+ 4 iii. James Bates Finch was born December 13, 1811.
5 iv. Joshua Mario Finch was born in Dutchess Co, NY 1821. Joshua M is listed on the 1850 census as not being able to read or write and is classified as Idiotic. I have used the middle name a Mario since the 1870 census lists him as Mario.
6 v. William Finch was born in Dutchess Co, NY 1823.
