My husband is the 6th chid of Charles Miles Finlen of Streator. His father was an undertaker here in Streator and his grandfather was the owner of the Livery business here. Charles M Finlen had 6 children and all are passed away. I am the widow of William Finlen and we have 5 children. Anything that I may know and that would be of interest to you I am willing to share. Where do you live now? We are still living in Streator.

I believe Miles had a sister Mary who married a Thomas Murphy on Jan. 1, 1828 in Niagara on the Lake, Lincoln, Ontario.
Miles Fenlan/Finlon is listed as a sponsor on Thomas and Mary's daughter's baptism record. Her name was Julia and was born March 3, 1833.
Julia married a George Longman in 1853. They moved to the Henry Ill. area in 1862 and then to Grafton Nebraska in the 1890's.

In one of the census records a Peter Murphy (a son of Thomas and Mary) is listed with Miles.
I think we might have a connection. What do you think?

Miles Finlen/Ann Byrnes Heenan Finlen had a Daughter:
Agnes Finlen/who married Thomas Murphy/son of Peter Murphy/Catherine Maddigan Murphy.
26 October 1881
St Bridget's Church
Buffalo, Ny
I would imagine, any Finlens from the Indiana Haldimand area are related.

a lady has pictures of the Finlen tombstones in St. Mary's cemetery in Streator.
"www.findagrave.com"
Miles Finlen
I just posted Miles Finlen, Sr. and his son, Charles Miles "Charley" Finlen's obituaries to that site.
Do you know what cemetery Ann Byrnes-Heenan-Finlen is buried? There was a notice in the paper about her death and funeral in 1881.
was'nt Miles Finlen Sr., sister, Mary Finlan-Murphy
Her son, Peter died abt 1886 and the widow, Cathernie Maddigan-Murphy and 5 children moved to Streator.
Another child of Mary Finla-Murphy was Julia Longman, correct?

Surnames: Finlens and Murphys
Hi joannie Anne Finlen here what I gather on this site is that the Finlen's and the Murphys were somehow related I knew something of this when Grandma Finlen was alive as she always made sure she knew if they needed anything and she was close to them They lived on Court Street too if this is any help to anyone I am getting into this again hope to hear more
