Hello Joe - regarding your webpage From: Scott ComputerJoe,
I was doing some searches on the Payne Family surname and your web page was a returned as having some information I was looking for.
Your URL: http://www.joepayne.org/Joe_Payne.html contained a newspaper article about my Great Uncle Grover Payne and a list of names consisting of my Great Grand Father his wife and several of their children.
Here is a cut from that page:
I believe this is actually Robert Eluin Payne b. 1878 � d. 1948 married Bertha Ellen Edmondson but not sure.
Name Age Jape B Payne 52 Bertha Payne 49 Thurman Payne 19 Arch Payne 17 Grover Payne 15 Sarah H Payne 16 Robert Payne 8Jape and Bertha are my great-grandparents. They were the parents of my grandfather, Lawrence Payne. Neither he nor my Aunt Lucy would have appeared in the 1930 census of Claiborne County because he and his family were probably living in Hancock county at the time. I don't know where Aunt Lucy was living at the time.
Jape is really Jonathon Payne. According to my mother he was called Jape or Jop by all who knew him. However, I find it interesting that he and Robert Eluin Payne would have been the same age at the time of the 1930 census and that they both had wives name Bertha.
Right now my Payne family seems to be a branch without a tree to be a part of. I've heard it said that my Payne family comes from a Moses Payne. However, I have no real proof. Do you think there is any connection between your family and mine?
