All but the last family had lived in Lake County, IL, before going to WI. Families two and three had children born in Ireland. Church records exist in Doonane Parish, Q. C., IRL, for some family members. The last family married in Wisconsin.

The emigrating husbands of the last lines were said to have had the same father, according to an early family source. The first three families are known to be related: some living descendants grew up knowing they were Finley cousins.
