GEORGE FINNELL; son of Reuben Finnell and Sarah Ashford
Mitchell Finnell; b.1796, Culpeper Co, Va; d.1 Aug 1819, Woodstock, VA;
m. to a unknown person.
     Very little is known of this George out side a notice of his death and
his estate papers. Notice of his death was published in the 20 Aug 1819 issue
page 3 of the Richmond Virginia Enquire:
     "DISTRESSING EVENT  Woodstock, VA August 11. ---
     Mr George Finnell, son of the Rev Reuben Finnell, of Culpeper
     county, Va lost is life by one of those unforeseen  occurrences which
     appears so prevalent at the present day; -- the following particulars are
     handed us by Major John Boyd, with whom the deceased lived. Whilst
     he was assisting in raising a hay rack on Friday evening before his
     death, and unloading the hay alternately as it came, he slid the rake
     down the side of the stack, and having finished the necessary work on
     such an occasion, and in trying to descend he fell directly on the handle
     of the rake, which entered his body eighteen inches; there was but one
     person present on this melancholy occession; he states the deceased
     appeared perfectly composed after the rake was extracted from his body
     --- but lanquished under severe pain; he was sensible from the moment
     of his approaching dissointion, but hoped in his redeemer. --- He
     continues in this situation until Sunday the 1st inst,when about 6
     o'clock in the evening he breathed his last in the 23rd year of his age.
     The deceased has left a wife with whom he was but lately united,to
     lament the loss of the partner of her bosom, and a large number of
     relations and friends to weep for his untimely fall."
     His estate was settled in Culpeper County, Virginia (Will Book I page
     169) contains a list of personal property.

     A number of DAR papers in the Society archives in Washington DC
list as a child of Rev Reuben Finnell and Sarah Ashford Mitchell Finnell,as a
Thomas Jonathan Finnell. Many over the years have assumed it was the
Thomas T./J. Finnell who married Sarah Menefee. This has been proven not
to be the correct Thomas Finnell but instead the Thomas Finnell who married
Nancy Compton in Virginia. There  appeared to have been some confusion as
to which Thomas was the son.

     THOMAS T. / J. FINNELL; b. 4 Apr 1805, Culpeper
     Co, VA; d.16 Oct 1854, aged 48yrs; m. 23 Mar 1830 to Sarah
     Menefee in Culpeper Co, VA. The son of John Finnell and Elizabeth
     Burch Thorn. Sarah the daughter of John Thomas Menefee and Frances
     Finnell (See page 13-21 ISSUE # four)

     THOMAS FINNELL; b.1802, VA; d.21 Mar 1868,
     Coshocton, OH; m. pre 1823 to Nancy Compton (daughter of George
     & Sarah Duke Compton); m/2 to Catherine Compton in Front Royal

The Thomas Finnell who died in Coshocton Co, OH is found buried in a
Family cemetery on his Farm, the stone states his age as 66 yrs (thus born
1802) The cemetery on the farm Thomas purchased from the Federal
Government in section 10, Jackson Twp, Coshocton. The purchase of the East
half of the southwest quarter of section ten, in township 5 of Range seven, of
the unappropriated Lands in the Military District, subject to sale at Zaneville,
Ohio containing 80 acres was dated 2 April 1835. There are also several other
land deeds for this section dealing with purchase and sale by Thomas Finnell

     Thomas is listed in the 1840 Federal census of Cohocton Co for
Jackson Township: 2 male under age 5 (Robert & John) 1 male between agees
5-10 (George); 1 male between ages 10-15 (Thomas); 1 male between age of
15-20 (Charles) and one male betwen ages of 30-40 (Thomas Sr) 1 female
under age 5 (Sarah); 1 female between ages 15-20 (Mary) and 1 female
between age 20-30 (Nancy)

Thomas appears in the 1833 Jackson Twp Chattel Property Tax lists with
Sarah Compton, Richard Compton. Thomas Finny with 1 horse and 1 cow.
The 1834 Jackson Twp Chattel Property Tax List found with Z. Compton,
Sarah Compton, Thomas Finney with again 1 horse and 1 cow.

The Rappahannock County Deed Book E  page 317 contains a deed for 100
acres being sold to John Jett and Joseph Reid. The land joins land of Richard
Duke. The land sold by Sarah Compton, Henrietta, wife of Anthony Ricketts,
Zachariah Compton (his wife Lenia); Nancy Compton, wife of Thomas
Finnel; Richard Compton; George Compton, John Compton; Elisha
Compton, and Thomas Compton all in the State of Ohio, County of Coshocton
[ This was to sell the land owned by George Compton deceased husband of
Sarah in Rapahannock County VA] This land was deeded to George Compton
by William Duke and Mary his wife [Culpeper County Deed Book AA page
210 dated 1805]

     Thomas Finnell, Sr with a group of 30 people including the Comptons
and Rocketts families came from Old Virginia, not far from Cumberland
Maryland by wagon to (Caldersburg) Roscoe, Ohio in Sept 1830. They settled
south and southwest of Roscoe in Jackson, Virginia and Washington
     I do believe that it is this Thomas Finnell who purchased in Culpeper
County on 20 May 1822 two items from the Henrietta Compton estate: 1 chest
for 75 cents and 1 old bench for 25 cents. Henrietta Compton was the widow
of Walter Compton and a close relative of Nancy Compton Finnell the wife of
Thomas. This would have been done just prior to or about the time they were
     I also believe that it is this same Thomas Finnell that is noted in the
estate settlement of Reuben Finnell on 9 Oct 1824 listed  "for a cash note of
Thomas Finnell" Reuben Finnell would have been his Father. All the other
Finnells listed on the estate papers are children of Reuben.

     Interesting evidence in light that there is no other evidence to show that
this Thomas was the son of Reuben Finnell and Sarah Ashford Mitchell

X O X O X O X Shot Down from Ambush Ex-Deputy Sheriff Benjamin F. Finnell of Kenton County was found murdered in the road near Morning View, KY at noon Sunday. There were four pistol wounds in his body. The police in Cincinnati, Covington and Newport were notified to look out for Austin Stephens, Finnell's son-in-law, who is suspected of having done the shooting and is missing. For some years Finnell and his son-in-law have been unable to agree. It was alleged that Stephens abused his wife, and she went to her father's house. At that time Finnell and Stephens met and had a fight during which Finnell shot Stephens in the arm. Mrs Stephens moved back to her home. Sunday Boss Finnell, B. F. Finnell's son and James Lowder were passing the Stephen's home, when he came to the window and shouted to them. Mrs Stephen and her children were not at home. The men got into a arguement during which Stephens pulled a revolver on young Finnell, Stephens was disarmed and he went back into the house, swearing that he would get even. He was not seen again. Sunday at noon one of the deputy Sheriff's sons went to an outhouse half a mile from the Finnell house and near the road saw his Father lying prostrate. Investigation disclosed the fact that the old man was dead, but the body was still warm. There were four pistol wounds in the body, two in the head and two in the back, between the shoulders. Footprints were seen leaving the scene of the killing Monday and began an investigation. There is no positive evidence that Stephens is Finnell's slayer. Stephens is about 34 years old and a farmer. He lived nearly all his life in Atwood and comes from a good family. People living in Morning View say that Stephens has repeatedly made declaration that he would kill some of the "Finnell Tribe" for their alleged percecution. Finnell's horse was found saddled in the road near the scene of the shooting and it is believed that the former deputy was mounted when he got his death wounds. There were no signs of a struggle and it is believed the old man was shot down in cold blood from ambush. B. F. Finnell, Jr who had the altercation with Stephens earlier in the day swears he will shoot Stephens on sight and a desperate family feud may be the results. Austin Stephens who is charged with the murder of ex-deputy Benjamin Finnell is still at large and his were abouts is as much a mystery as ever. The country around Morning View has been pretty well searched by a posse of Finnell friends but no trace of missing man had been found. The true story of the killing which probably never been known unless the assasssin discloses how it was done. From all the facts gleaned by Cornor Tarvin and a Post representative who were on the ground shortly after the murder, there is much about the shooting yet to be solved. Every circumstances point to Austin Stephen as the slayer of Finnell yet no one saw him commit the dead. A strange thing in connection with the shooting is where did Stephens get the revlover with which the deed was done. He was disarmed about a half-hour before by Van Buren Finnell, better known as "Boss" with whom he had an encounter near the spot where the elder Finnell's body was found. Why Stephen should carry two revolvers which must have been the case is puzzling Cornor Tarvin. The wounds received by Finnell show that he was shot from behind, and that the bullets were fired upward. The bullet in the left arm indicates that the murderer fired from the left side. The other two wounds were in the right side of the back, one through the left lung and one through the left kidney, either of which was fatal. The spot chosen by the assassian is well fitted for such an act. A stable fronting on the pike hid the shooter from view as Finnell rode past. There was no fence at this point, and it was a easy matter for a person to take a step or two which would bring the person directly behind Finnell. The point where Finnell was killed is not visible from any of the farmhouses in the neighborhood, and the rumbling of a fraight train, which was passing about the time of the killing, prevented those in the neighborhood from hearing the shots. One witness told the Cornor that he heard shots fired about the time Finnell was supposed to have been killed, but he thought they were caused by torpedoes on the railroad track. The country around Morning View is so formed as to make escape from the vicinity very easy. No one has yet been found who has seen Stephens since the shooting. Finnell's friends two days before the shooting warned him that Stephens was in the neighborhood, armed and making treats that he intendsd to get even with Finnell. He arrived from Ohio Thursdy and went at once to his ___ House, which is about two miles from the scene of the murder. Friday Stephens rode into Walton on horse back, where he meet "Squire" Mann, Brute Willis and several friends of Finnell. He told them that he was back to square matters with Finnell. He was advised to return to Ohio, but he laughed at those who sought to advise him. Stephens carries a bullet in his right thigh, which was placed there by Finnell nearly two years ago when the latter was Deputy Sheriff. The shooting was the result of the ________ THE ABOVE: a article in The Kentucky Post newspaper Covington, Boone Co,KY July 1899 for the events The newspaper not named and the end results not disclosed.
