We pick up our Finson family line with Susan Finson, who was born around 1746 in Stoneham Massachusetts. We do know her father's name was Thomas, as was her grandfather. The following was sent to us, but we have not checked it out:

The New England Historic Genealogic Society's quarterly, The Register has been publishing a serialized genealogy of one of her ancestral lines, the Wallis family of Cape Ann, Mass. Susan and her father Thomas Finson and grandfather Thomas Finson are listed and well documented within it.

Susan married Zebulon Rowe in 1775 in Orrington, Penobscot County, Maine. It is through their son, Finson Rowe, that we are related.

Following is what we have on Susan. We welcome any documented changes and additions!
