I am working on this Genealogy that I know who connects Mattie Mason who married Robert W. Payne. Was she the daughter of John Tipton Mason or

John Tipton's father was John E. born in 1854 and John E. Mason is living with his father, Benjamin F. Mason, born 1827 in Tennessee, in Oregon. Although incorrectly listed at the family search as F.R. Mason in the 1880 census, with wife Helen.

https://familysearch.org

I know this is right cause there is a Yocum living with them and the connection to the Payne family is that Mattie Mason was the daughter of John E. Mason and Dorcus Yoakum.

John E. Mason was a brother to Mary J. Mason, born 1856. I have included the 1860 Claiborne Census showing this family as well and the 1870 which shows Mary Mason age 14 living in the household of Lewis Mason and being a domestic servant. Lewis Mason born 1818 his wife Sevin born 1820 and has a son James McNeil Mason born in 1864. Lewis is possibly a brother to Benjamin F. Mason who is shown moving to Oregon on the 1880 census. Probably leaving Mary J. Mason a daughter behind. The 1880 census has Lewis and wife Lavinia with a son Tylor McNeil (no image available). John E. Mason and D.B. Yoakum were married 10 Mar 1881. The 1900 census has John E. and Dorcus with the following children:
Son Frank Mason M 13 Tennessee
Son Tipton Mason M 9 Tennessee
Son Burn Mason M 7 Tennessee
Servant Casida Neal F 17 Tennessee

Mattie Mason must have been born shortly after their marriage and married R.W. Payne before 1900.
