He moved to Lincoln County, North Carolina from Pennyslvania about 1760.

To Keith E. Norris, April 25th, 2003, on the Finger message board of Genform.com:

The clue to Peter Finger's identity is found on the ship list of the "St. Andrew" in 1749. He arrived with a large number of Mennonites, signing his name next to Mennonites from the same area of Germany where a Mennonite Finger family lived. I have traced Peter's family back a couple of generations to the year 1660. I plan on searching Swiss records in the near future to find more generations back. Most Mennonites who emigrated to Pennsylvania between the years 1717 and 1776 were from Swiss families who were exiled from Switzerland to Germany in the late 1600s. Although Peter was probably born into a Mennonite family, he left that faith sometime after his arrival in Pennsylvania. - Richard W. Davis

Found him on a ship's list with the following description:

"[List 128 C] At the Statehouse at Philadelphia, Saturday, the 9th Septr 1749.
Present: The Honourable, the Governor.
The Foreigners whose Names are underwritten, imported in the Ship Saint Andrew, James Abercrombie, Master, from Rotterdam, but last from Plymouth in England, did this day take the usual Qualifications to the Government. By the List III. Person 400 Palatines."
