I am searching my father's family name Sauvalle. I found that Marie Louise Finlay married my great-grandfather She was Carlos' sister. I was able to find their mother-Isabel de Barres(Fr Trinidad)and father-Edward Finlay y Wilson (from England or Scotland).
Recently I found a probate announcement in the NY Times-1898 for Eliza or Isabel de Barres de Finlay. It listed the following for her will

Marie Louise Sauvalle m. John S Sauvalle NYC
Charles J. Finlay(Carlos) m. Adele Shine Cuba
Henry P. Finlay m. ??? Murphy So Orange NJ
Isabel Finlay de Navarre
Robert H. Finlay
Frederick D. Finlay
Marie J. Finlay
Edouard C. Finlay

I have found info on Henry P Finlay and family. I was in touch with someone from his branch and she supplied me with children and grandchildren names etc.
I have limited info on Carlos' children, George H. and Carlos E. and grandchildren

I know Carlos and Marie Louise were siblings. I haven't been able to prove Henry P. Finlay was a sibling although Marie Louise is buried in his cemetery plot in South Orange NJ with many other Finlays

I haven't come across these other names (except Frederick) but that might be because they stayed in Cuba. Although the family in general traveled a great deal.

Please let me know if you find any thing else

Susan Sauvalle Trainor
