1/23/2001 8:15Maria DavidsonMariaMRD@aol.comVA, NC, TNI was just looking at the Payne information you posted at I wanted to thank you because I had been trying to help an aunt of mine research her Payne relatives (she doesn't have a computer), and I thought perhaps she was descended from App Payne. It so happens that your research disproves that theory.

I am hoping that you may have some information on a Maxie Hazel Payne (now deceased) from Wise County, Va. I know that she married Ralph Collins and had one daughter, Charlotte Faye around 1938. Ralph Collins died following a mining accident when their daughter was young. I am particularly interested in any brothers or sisters that Maxie Hazel Payne may have had, or any relatives living in Reidsville, Rockingham County, North Carolina. She remarried sometime during the late 1950's or early 1960's.

If Maxie Hazel Payne is a relative of yours, however distant, I would appreciate any facts you have on her immediate family. At any rate, I am really grateful for the information that I obtained already from your posting.

Thank you,

I have been trying to find out any information I can on his great grandfather, Earl (Earle) McKinney Payne. I have so very little information. I was hoping you might have ran across his name in your research. Earl lived in Greenville, SC when he died. He was born in 1890 and died in 1977. I have heard that he was born in Tennessee or North Carolina. Any help would be appreciated.

2/3/2001 8:26Yuvonne Wolfeycw@ruralnet2.comTennessee, Illinois, OklahomaHenry Ross Payne, Rachel DunnerJoe. My great, great grandfather's name was Henry Ross Payne. He was born on 16 June 1825 in Tennessee. He married Rachel Dunner, who was from Illinois. Rachel was born 20 May 1819. I don't know where or when they were married, nor do I know where in Tennessee Henry was born. Their daughter, Mahala Payne, married Crosby Fry. Crosby and Mahala died in Oklahoma. Other children of Henry and Rachel were: John, Otho, Grenade (female), Jacob, Johane (female), Henry Ross Jr. and Theresa (female). I have no other information on this family.

If you happen to have any information on this family, I would certainly appreciate having it. I've been researching my family for over 20 years and have nearly 10,000 individuals in my files. Thank you.

3/29/2001 12:38Beth Calnon VA, MOPulaski CO MO John Messer (?) Payne b. abt. 1815 Dear Mr. Payne:

I have been searching for my Payne ansestory for several months now and have run into a dead end. I was wondering, if in your reasearch you have found any information on this line of Paynes.

John Messer (?) Payne b. abt. 1815 in VA d. UNKNOWN. I do know he was in the 1850 and 1870 Pulaski CO MO census. He was Married to:

Susan Louisa Dodd or Todd b. 7/1826 in TN d. 1905 buried in Bethel Cem in Pond MO but John is not their. Their children:

George W Payne b. 1849 in MO
Parisar D Payne 7/1850 in MO
Jeremiah Mare Payne b. 5/28/1852 in Rolla MO
Jack Payne (Andrew?) b. 1865 in MO
Issac M. Payne b 1867 in MO
John M Payne b. 1869 in MO
Rachel Payne ?

In the 1850 Census he had a James S. and a Daniel living with him in mo they were ages 15 and 11. The family history records I have dosn't mention these Boys. They were both born in TN but seem to old to be Louisa's children. There is also a Sarah and Jarvis Lennon. I have no idea who they are.

Jeremiah Payne Married Naomi Howser
They had nine children including my Ggrandfather John Monroe Payne. All of their children were also born in MO.

John Monroe Married Della Mort. They had 3 children one of which was my Grandmother Ive May Payne. She marrid Edward Monroe Maxey. They had 2 children one of which was my father Ronald Monroe Maxey.

Anyway, I was wondering if any of these names look famiular to you, and If you could tell me which line of Paynes I may fit into.

Thank you for your time.

6/17/2001 17:10Yuvonne Iowa, MontanaHenry Ross Payne and first wife, RachelHello, Joe. I recently found several photos of some members of the Henry Ross Payne, Sr. family and thought I would give you the names in case you have them in your files. They are:

Wesley Payne, Gilbert Payne and Eliza Griffith Payne (2nd wife of Henry Ross Payne, Sr.).

All these Paynes were in Iowa (circa 1909); however, Wesley Payne's oldest daughter (name unknown) apparently moved to Montana after her marriage, since the photo of her and her two daughters and a son was taken at Niels Olson Studios in Three Forks, Montana. Gilbert Payne lived at Hawarden, Iowa according to the attribution on two photos taken about 10 or 12 years apart.

Would appreciate a reply to let me know if these names match anything in your files. My great grandmother was Mahala Payne, oldest child of Henry Ross Payne and his first wife, Rachel Dunner.

12/6/2001 4:56Douglas VirginiaCulpeper CoElias Payne I've made some revisions to how my ancestor, Elias Payne, fits into the Payne family.

In a previous e-mail I had told you that my ancestor was almost certainly the son of either the Francis or George Payne who resided in Culpeper Co., VA during the 1810 census.

1810 census of Culpeper Co., VA, Microfilm Roll Number 68, pp. 107-107a.

Francis Payne (p. 107a):
Free White Males: three <10, two >=10&<16, one >=16&<26, one >=26&<45;
Free White Females: two <10, one >=10&<16, two >=16&<26, one >=26&<45; Slaves: seven.

George Payne (p. 107):
Free White Males: two >=16&<26, one >=45;
Free White Females: two >=10&<16, one >=16&<26, one >=26&<45, one >=45; Slaves: twenty-seven.

I had assumed that the Francis Payne in Culpeper Co., VA in 1810 was Francis Payne, Jr., son of the Revolutionary War veteran. This was an incorrect assumption. That Francis Payne continued to reside in Fauquier Co., VA until his death per the tax records and the book. The Francis Payne (born 1769 in Fauquier Co., VA) listed in the 1810 census in Culpeper Co., VA is shown on page 302 of the book and is the son of William Payne (died 1780 in Fauquier Co., VA). As I told you earlier, both Francis and George Payne only show up in the 1810 census in Culpeper Co. According to the book, Francis Payne sold his property in Culpeper Co. in 1819. It states that he had 13 children listed in his will in 1835 (Rappahannock Co., which is why I couldn't locate it). According to the 1810 census he had 11 children at that time.

I have been able to confirm that my ancestor, Elias Payne, was almost certainly dead by 1830, his wife (presumably widow) is listed in Culpeper Co., VA in both the 1830 and 1840 census returns as head of household. Nancy Ann Curtis Payne (wife of Elias Payne) was born between 1785 and 1790, per the known chronology of the Curtis family and the census return age brackets. Assuming that her husband, Elias Payne, was born about the same time, then he could still be the son of Francis Payne (born 1769), however, just barely, presuming that he was born closer to 1790.

Note from the 1810 census return that George Payne had two sons in the 16 to 26 age bracket and that he was at least 45, at least four years older than Francis Payne, who would have been 41 in 1810. I couldn't find any George Paynes in the same generation as Francis Payne (generation V) in the book. However, there was a George Payne in generation IV who was born in 1759 in King George Co., VA and died in 1836 in Bath Co.. He would have been about the right age to match the George Payne in Culpeper Co. in 1810, unfortunately, Col. Brook Payne states that this George Payne (p. 382) had no family and "it is surmised that he was not married." However, Col. Payne does place this George Payne in Culpeper Co. circa 1794, when he witnessed the will of John Ferguson, the father-in-law of Francis Payne (born 1769).

Given that both Francis and George Payne disappear from the Culpeper Co. census returns sometime between 1810 and 1820 and that they appear to have been neighbors strongly suggests that they were related. The George Payne who died in 1836 was the uncle of the Francis Payne who died in 1835. I wonder if Col. Brook Payne did not extensively investigate this George Payne. Perhaps all of his children predeceased him.

One other alternative for the George Payne living in Culpeper Co. in 1810 is the George Payne listed in the tax rolls in Fauquier Co., VA in 1800. Since this is where Jemima Payne was living (daughter of Francis Payne, Sr.) and she also married into the Curtis family (and had ties to the Jett family), perhaps this George Payne then moved to Culpeper Co., VA prior to 1810.

Since I don't have easy access to Col. Payne's book, do you know how this George Payne fits into the Payne family and whether there are any other George Paynes listed in the book that were born between 1750 and 1765 (based on the ages of his children and his census age bracket in 1810)?

I'll be back in Virginia in a couple of weeks and I intend to go through all of the Culpeper Co. tax records to confirm the dates of arrival and departure of Francis Payne, George Payne, and Elias Payne.

possible Caiborne, or Hancock Co.'s. Wifes Name (lizzie) or Elizabeth. Known children:
1)Nolta mar.James M. Wallen
2)Cretie mar. Peter Collingsworth
4)Alva Newton mar. Effie Cardie Hatfield
All lived all or part of their lives in Tazewell, Claiborne Co., Tn. Thanks

Asking for any help regarding the location of Cedar Flat Cemetery located in the Claiborne Co. area. Also trying to figure out which Payne line he descends from. My Gr. Grandfather Alva Newton Payne is buried there with other Payne family members. It is believed that his father Joe or Joseph Payne (b. abt. 1865) owned the land where the cemetery sits or owned land very close to it. He is listed in the Claiborne Pioneer Project as being married to "Lizzy"
last name is uncertain possibly Hatfield. Known siblings of Alva Newton Payne are Charles or Charlie, Nolta, Cretie,
and Bertha. All listed on the Project site and all raised in the Claiborne area.

My Grandmother has told me that the cemetery is not far from "Red Hill" and the "Old Red Hill School". I see no reference to these names on any sites. When my Gr. Grandma Payne passed away in 1986 my mother said her service was in Tazewell but they were on the road for about twenty minuites or so before reaching the Cedar Flat(s) Cemetery
It is possible that this cemetery could be in a neighboring county. Other names associated with this Payne line are as follows: Hatfield, Wallen, Collingsworth, and Helton.
Any help would be greatly appreciated... Thanks

Cleopatra Adolphis Clark (C.A. Clark) b. 12-24-1856 d. 4-9-1904
They are both burried at the Pleasant Hill Cemetary in Sevier Co. TN
They had 10 children. As you can see, they both died young. I have not been able
to find out from what. Are you aware of anything in particular that was going around
Sevier Co. in 1903 & 1904? Needless to say, their bunch of children were left to
relatives to raise and much family history was lost.
I have a picture of an old man with W.R. Payne wrote on the picture (picture taken
in Sevier Co.) and a picture of a young man, Doxy Payne wrote on the picture
(picture taken in Fairmount IN).
You probably have the census from 1880 with Payne's in the 10th civil district, right?
We don't know if Malinda was Martha's mom or not or if Thomas could be her brother.
A Dan Payne and his wife (no known children) used to visit a relative of Martha's, the
relative lived in Knox Co.
Anything sound familiar? Would love to connect Martha to her family.
3/18/2004 16:00Jo Payne Piercedonaldlpierce@yahoo.comMissouriOliver Mack Harrison PayneI am Jo Payne Pierce. I have been trying to trace my Paynes for several years and can't get past my grandfather Oliver Mack Harrison Payne. He was one of 8 children, but I have no real clues as to his father or mother's names. He was born in MO, 1889?, in either Jefferson or Greene County. My daddy is an only child and all connections were dead by the time we began our research. Of course my daddy just called the grandfather he knew, Granddad Payne, so that is no help. I noticed that one of your Paynes had been in MO. I have a list of the boy Paynes that were born in the late 1880's-early 1890's, but have no exact dates. Their names were Daniel, Dave, and my grandfather who went by the name of Mack. We aren't sure if that was just a nickname or his real name. He used to say just call me Old Man Payne, to go with his itinitials, OM. Some of the girls were Maxine, Elizabeth, Cora, and a couple of other children that I'm not sure of their names. We have heard that there was a line of preachers in the Payne family, but have no documentation. I have run across a J M Payne that might be a connection. My daddy's name is James, and with his daddy being Mack, that could have been passed along. Just point me in the right direction and I'll try to go there. Thanks so much.
3/30/2004 11:49Daryl Paynejlcdrp@bellsouth.netTennesseeJohnson City - Payne's CreekLaws PayneHello,
I just came across your website in search of my lineage, and your site was the only one i came across with any reference to the Payne's in East Tennesee. I was wondering if you might be able to help me a little. My GGGrandfather was born an raised in Payne creek tn, about 16 miles away from greenville Tn. He was born 1889 and died in 1981. His grandfather was Laws Payne whom George learned to play banjo from. George and his brother apparently put out a blugrass album. I havent been able to find out what year for the album. Sometime in his life he ended up moving towards Johnson City due to the violence in Payne Creek. If you may have any leads or suggestions for whereelse i may look, will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

8/20/2004 13:23Pat Stormsjdburk00@hotmail.comLondon, Laurel County, KentuckyJohn Payne born 1830Hello I am looking for any information on Paynes from Tennessee or Virginia that may have moved to Kentucky. My grandfather always said that the Paynes came from England in the late 1600's and came to our county by way of Viginia and Tennessee. The farthest I have been able to take it back is my great great grandfather John Payne (b.1830) who married Louisa Burnett(b.1829) in 1851 in the community of Brock in Laurel County Kentucky. John had 7 children -5 boys (Thomas Arthur, William Alvis,James and George who all left Laurel County and moved to Mitchell, Oregon and Eli F. my great grandfather who stayed in London) 2 girls (Martha Ann who married Newton Cottongim and Mary Lucinda who married Fredrick Lincks - both of witch stayed in laurel county). The 1830 and 1840 census from Laurel County doesn't list any Paynes so he might have come from Tennessee as a young man.

12/25/2004 18:42Michael Payne, Ph.D.payne@biodesignofny.comNew EnglandSusanna Paine (born June 9, 1792 in Rehoboth, Mass) was a portrait painter. As a hobby, I research and publish articles on early American portrait painters and am currently gathering information for an article about her. I have her parents names: James and Mary (Chafee) also of Rehoboth, but am having lots of problems with the details of her life as this was a comman name. She published her autobiography in 1854 and a novel in 1860. He portraits are in the collection of the Portland Maine Museum of Arts and many private collections. Would appreciate hearing from people who can help me further describe her life. Thank you in advance

4/16/2005 23:16Julia Raizentheraizens@comcast.netSusannah Payne 1792..Richard Payne 1640?Hello. I am a descendant of Susannah (b. 1792) Payne who married Jacob Goodner. According to several federal censuses, she lists her place of birth as North Carolina. I have found one secondary reference that indicates that her father was a Josias Payne b.1765. That same source then goes on to indicate an ancestor by the name of Richard Payne b ~1640 in VA. I would like to confirm that Susannah is indeed the daughter of Josias. FYI, the source is the Society of the Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims. They tell me that they no longer have the original application material.

Any relevant information would be greatly appreciated.

in 1911 his name was Arthur he was orphaned and I know nothing about my family
tree except that his father's name was Arthur. I just thought I would drop you a
line because you have a site about our family name and I am thinking about
contacting the Mormon online geneaologies. It would be interesting to find out
how far back we would have to go to find a common ancestor. Maybe someday we
will know, who knows. Anyway, if you would like to e-mail me that would be nice,
don't know how far it will go though. If you have any information you may think
would be of interest to me let me know. Sincerely James Payne

1/16/2007 8:09Beth Kinnanebethk1@insightbb.comTennesseeKnoxvilleJohn Harrison Payne I am a native of Knoxille, TN currently living in Lexington, KY. My grandfather was James (Jim) Edwin Payne, Sr. I am a 4th generation graduate of Knoxville Central High School (1984). My Payne family, at least by the time my grandfather was born, was from Fountain City. I am trying to find out what Paynes I belong to, and have not gotten further back than my Great Great grandfather.

I believe my Paynes came from Tazewell (in the short run, anyway).

My grandfather's family is as such.

Father: Charles Herbert Payne, Sr. b. 8/19/1896, m. Lucinda (Cindy) Lamora Winfrey (b. 1898, d. 1991) 7/25/16, d. 4/29/54 Knoxville buried Lynnhurst Cemetery

Charles' parents were John Harrison Payne b. 11/12/1864, m. Martha Elizabeth Wilson (b. 1870, d. 1927), d. 1/16/44. Do not know where, born or died or buried. I am assuming somewhere in East Tennessee.

And that is all I have on my Paynes.

Incidentally, Lucinda Winfrey, my great grandmother, was better known around Fountain City as Mamaw Payne. She was notable for being probably the biggest Central High School Bobcats fan on planet earth, and all 7 of her sons excelled in sports, mostly football, there. Her one daughter, Barbara Payne Fischer, was a cheerleader, no doubt. I have her family pretty much done, they were from Rogersville, TN. Her father was the Rev. William Winfrey, whose brothers ran Winfreys Stone Masonry in Fountain City for years.

My grandfather was a star football player at Central, graduated 1941, married my recently departed grandmother, Julia May Wrenne, just after they graduated. For years he worked at M. S. McClellan and Company in downtown Knoxville. His siblings were Charles, Jr., John, William (Bill), Robert (Bob), Gene, David and Barbara. Brothers Bob and Bill worked their entire lives at Mynatt's funeral home in Fountain City.

The reason I believe the Paynes were from Tazewell is because my Great Grandmother's family lived there for awhile, and that may be where she first met her future husband.

The only thing anectdotal I have on Martha Elizabeth Wilson is this - "Mamaw Payne (as she was also known) was the only child of Grandma Thomas and Mr. Wilson." My guess is Mr. Wilson had a short life, obvioulsy not killed in the Civil War due to Martha's birthday in 1870, but that Grandma Thomas was known as such because she remarried, probably had other children, but only one by her first husband.

Anyway, I don't know if you know anything about my bunch or not. Unfortunately, no in that side of the family wrote much down. For the record, if you do know anything, and if any of it mgiht be considered "unpleasant" by some, it won't bother me. First, I am not easily offended, secondly, I didn't know any of them so it doesn't matter beyond my curiosity and the light of history, and lastly, I have found all kinds of entertaining things about my family tree, the good, the bad and the ugly. As it is, I can trace most of my family back to the dawn of time, or at the very least, the late 1500's. Except the Paynes. I have found lots of logical plausibilities (Jesse Payne of Washington County for one) but nothing concrete.

Anything you might know would be greatly appreciated, and I'll see if I can get any of the males named Payne (and they are legion)in my family to jump on this DNA thing you are doing.
