We seek information on his life during the War. His name does not appear on the community-based resources encountered so far. However, the name "Henry Finn" was included on a general list of soldiers serving in the New York Line. Afterwards, he was accorded a land bounty right in conjunction with the city militia regiment.
Perhaps he was the Henry Finn whose nine-person household was configured on the census for the Washington County town of Salem in 1790. An online resource follows the life of this individual to his death about 1815 in central New York
Aside from three references placing Henry Finn in Albany about 1781, his story awaits answers to many presently unanswered questions. Perhaps he was a relative of the younger New York-born actor Henry J. Finn.
Sources: The life of Henry Finn has not been assigned a CAP biography number. This sketch is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources.
