I believe the Julianna Finger you have listed as the daughter of John Finger, son of Peter, is the Eulalia Ann Finger (she inherits 90 acres of land from her father John Fingers estate in Lincoln Co., NC in 1796), who married Jesse Reel Pendergrass, in 1815, Burke Co., NC. Eulalia Ann Finger Pendergrass was born February 9, 1795. She and her family were living in Burke Co., NC at the time of her marriage to Jesse Reel Pendergrass. (I have not determined if the Lincoln Co families who later show up in Burke Co., migrated or whether they were living in that portion of Lincoln which became annexed to Burke.) Jesse Reel and Eulalia Ann (called Euley)Finger Pendergrass lived in Burke and later McDowell Co., NC before migrating to Arkansas. Since there was a migration of related Burke, Rutherford, McDowell Co., NC families about 1840, who were spreading the Baptist ministry, which ended up in Yell Co., Dardenelle, ARK. This may have been how and why Eulalia and Jesse Reel Pendergrass ended up buried in Dardenell, Yell Co., ARK. Eulalia Ann Finger Pendergrass died February 17, 1885; Jesse Reel Pendergrass died April 16, 1863.
They had four children:
William Pendergrass m. Ann Hill
John Finger Pendergrass(Rev.) m. Lois Elmyra
George Washington Pendergrass (Rev.) m.1) Grace Miranda Carter; 2)Sarah Adeline Carter (her sister)
Catherine Matilda Pendergrass m. Thomas Carter (brother to the above Carter sisters)
I am intersted in learning more about this Finger family.
