Another family, once numerous and somewhat prominent, but now reduced in number to but a few, are
the Finkleas; they have been much reduced by emigration. There were two old Finkleas in the early
times in the county - John Finklea and "Corn-making Willis". John Finklea, whose wife was a Crawford,
with his numerous family went to Alabama and died there about 1859. The only children of
"Corn-making Willis" mentioned are Hardy, Alfred, Thomas and Neil.
