Fincher house, Battle of Mansfield, April 8, 1864

I am looking for the name of the owner of the Fincher house where part of the Battle of Mansfield was fought on April 8, 1864. My ggg-grandfather Fincher came to Desoto Parish around 1850. I am wondering if the house belonged to him, one of his sons or one of his brothers. Other nearby houses were Birdwell and Allen. The house is located on Highway 175 just south of the Mansfield State Historic Site. The park manager believes that the house is still in existence, but hasn't been occupied in a few years.
