According to his Civil War Invalid Pension File, he was 5' 2½ ' light complexion, gray eyes and dark hair. He enlisted in Co. B 14th Regiment, New York volunteers on April 3, 1861. He was discharged in October, 1862. After his discharge his occupation was shopkeeper and peddlar.

In 1886 he was living in Utica, Oneida, New York. Came to the U.S. in 1856.

N. Y. MILLS, Nov. 30, 1877. To the Editors of the ROMAN CITIZEN: Several witnesses were summoned before the Grand Jury at its last session from this village, to prove a violation of the license law. They were sworn, and testified that one Martin Finger, of this village, was in the habit of selling beer to be drank on his premises, and that he sold it by measure also that whisky had been bought and drank, on his premises. There was abundance of proof, of a reliable character, and also that he had no town license, and still no notice taken of the offence. It is frequently thrown into the face of temperance prohibitionists that there are plenty of good temperance laws, if they were only enforced. No more of legislation on the subject needed. The foreman of the Grand Jury was one of the license commissioners of this town, and it would seem that, as a vigilant officer, a different result might be expected. Besides, the public sentiment of the place is so hostile to the traffic that no intoxicating drinks have been sold in this village for the last 40 years, except in violation of the law. - Roman Citizen

A lively runaway went up Main street at Friday morning. The owner, Mr. Martin Finger, our fish peddler, was in a house when the horse became frightened and took to a run breaking the wagon completely to pieces and badly injuring the horse. This is quite a misfortune, as Mr. Finger can ill afford the loss. Utica Sunday Tribune August 25, 1878
