I want to acknowledge receipt of the information you have been sending.  
I haven't had time to do much with it.  I have been interested in the Payne 
incident on the Donelson expedition.  The only material in Addington is the 
same quote you have from the Donelson journal.  
There is another Payne entry in the index, but it deals with a twentieth 
century individual.
I did try to piece together the gedcom you sent.  I could import it, but only
with several missing links.  Thus the whole is not pieced together.  
I am not sure what you have on the Paynes.  I have John Blakemore junior 
married to Elizabeth, the daughter of Josiah Payne and Elizabeth Fleming.  
I have thought that the Payne who died on the float trip was a brother of 
Elizabeth.  There are some references to Josiah Paynes (father and son) on 
the Payne genforum.  See http://genforum.genealogy.com/payne/messages/1776.html
This material conflicts (of course) with what I have.
Here are some notes:
(1)The John A. Blakemore book says the name of Elizabeth's father was Matthew
 Payne.  It mentions also that on June 18, 1782, Elizabeth Blakemore and Josiah 
Payne were appointed administrators of the estate of John Blakemore, junior 
(who was killed by Indians).  
The whole Payne connection is confused.  I have another note that says Elizabeth's 
parents were Josiah Payne and Elizabeth Bowles.
(2) A DAR application:--Mrs. Mary Pillow Carroll Vance, No. 44737  Born in Memphis, Tenn.
 Wife of R. H. Vance. Descendant of Lieut. Josiah Payne, Jr., and of Sergt. Henry Bradford.
--Daughter of William Henry Carroll (1838-66) and Eliza Jane Burthett (1819-99) his wife.
--Granddaughter of Gov. William H. Carroll (1788-1844) and Cecelia Bradford (b. abt. 1795) his wife.
--Gr-granddaughter of Henry Bradford and Elizabeth (Payne) Blackmore, his wife.
--Gr-gr-granddaughter of Josiah Payne, Jr. and Elizabeth Fleming, his 1st wife, m. 1755.
--Josiah Payne, Jr., served in the Virginia militia. He was born before 1735 in Goochland County, Va. 
After the Revolution removed to North Carolina, now Tennessee, and located where Nashville now stands.
Also Nos. 6414, 7627, 10248, 13030, 27422, 38894.
--Henry Bradford (1758-1815) served as sergeant in Capt. John Blackwell's company 1777. 
He was born in Fauquier County, Va., removed to Tennessee 1784 where he died.
(3) another DAR application:--Mrs. Kate Carroll Seabrook.48186   Born in Memphis, Tenn. 
Wife of William H. Seabrook. Descendant of Lieut. Josiah Payne, Jr.
--Daughter of William Henry Carroll and Eliza Jane Burthett, his wife.
--Granddaughter of Gov. William H. Carroll (1788-1844) and Cecelia Bradford (b. about 1795), 
  his wife.
--Gr-granddaughter of Henry Bradford and Elizabeth (Payne) Blackmore, his wife.
--Gr-gr-granddaughter of Josiah Payne, Jr., and Elizabeth Fleming, his 1st wife, m. 1755.
--Josiah Payne, Jr., served in the Virginia militia. He was born 1735 in Goochland County, Va. 
After the revolution removed to that part of North Carolina, now Tennessee, and located where
Nashville now stands.
Also Nos. 6414, 7627, 10248, 13030, 27422, 38894.
I have also wondered whether Dolly Madison was a member of this same Payne 
family.
The wills are especially interesting.  
Some of this material is in the Jay Berry Price book.  I will scan that section for you when time 
permits.I haven't forgot about our deal on the Washington County Historical Society.
