 Additional Info:
* In the British Isles Vital Records Index (Second Edition) from the LDS, there is an entry for the marriage of a
Thomas Finn to Elizabeth McHugh on 11 Feb 1793.  This Thomas could be Michael's father for the following reasons:
It is believed that Michael was born around 1790 and the marriage of Thomas is in proximity to this date
The marriage record for Thomas lists his father as Michael.  If my Michael was the first born male to Thomas, he
would most likely have been named after his grandfather (Michael).

My Michael named his fist male child Thomas which if he followed the normal tradition of naming the first male
after the child's grandfather would indicate that Michaels father was Thomas Finn.  Of course all this "normal 
naming" convention is nice but it's not documented proof!

** This Thomas and Elizabeth listed above are also recorded as being the parents of a Honor Finn born 6 Jan 1794
which could make her a sibling of Michael.
There is also some recent findings of a Patrick Fin & a Margaret Fin that are looking like possible sibling links 
to this Michael.  There is also a possible Catherine Fin (record almost unreadable) sponsor to Margaret Fin born
