There has been extensive research contributed to the Claiborne County Day lines by John F. Day III whose
research will be colored green below, taking the DayFamilyDNA Chart results from three percipients of the
Claiborne County Day lines.  He states in his research:
The three lines are known to me as the
Ambrose Day
, Ransom Day and Reuben Day lines.  All almost certainly
proven by the Claiborne County records, the St. James Parish (Goochland Co., Va) registry and the DNA
results from the Day Family DNA Chart.

There is evidence from the Court Minutes of TN-Claiborne that Ransom Day (b. 1760) was a brother to Ambrose

Day (b. 1761-1770) and Reuben Day (b.1761-1770).

 

Incidentally, the John. Day that married Ann Taylor (18 Mar 1784 in the same Douglas Register of Goochland) was a different John Day

from the one that was married to Dorothy Henley, the parents of Ransom Day when he was born in 1762.  John and "Dolly" are still

married in Albemarle in 1785.

Virginia Historical Genealogies by John Bennett Boddie lists this John Day as son of William Day and Ann
Amelia Harris married to a woman with the surname Taylor.
 
 
 
Philip Day and his son John Ransome Day b. 1763; marr. wife Elizabeth of  Laurens Co SC  as a separate page.  Also a
Rootsweb Database on Philip Day as possible father of John Ransom of Claiborne.
PHILIP DAY born 1740 in Va. (NOTE - Philip's will was written about 1793 and he died about 1796)
John F.Day III, Los Altos, Ca says the following regarding his ancestor, Philip Day’s connection to the Ransom Day family of East Tennessee:
I have been particularly attracted to Ransom Day, Virginia Revolutionary War veteran and pioneer who led his family from
Virginia to Claiborne about 1806.  “Ransom” is a recurring name in my Day family of South Carolina and Alabama.  My 
4g-grandfather was Philip Day, recorded in Halifax County, Virginia in the 1782 census.  His son, my 3g-grandfather was
John Ransom Day, born in Virginia, and died in South Carolina.  Hence, my curiosity was perked by a man from Virginia by
the name Ransom Day.

Ensign John Day born 30 June 1742 Bucks Co. PA  It was my belief that Ensign John Day migrated to Jefferson
County, Tennessee and had a son David.  More on Ensign John below:
There is a John DAY line that descends from John Day of Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
(1)John DAY was born 30 June 1742 Bucks Co. PA,(this would be Ensign John Day whose pension is found below)
that married : Mary Susan "Polly" and Esther Drennin
His mother was  Susan Wyley,daughter of James Wyley, This Rootsweb database lists this John Day as the son of Nathaniel Day.  
Also Ensign John Day had a son David Day who was a member of the Big Springs Baptist Church in Springdale.  This File is
a file from McClung Historical Collection on the descendents of Christopher Day down to 
Elizabeth Day McCoy Haynes was born on August 15, 1823
This came from Linda Bollinger in the attached email
A good Rootsweb database for this line can be found here : (1st) John Day and Susan Polly
His wife also is listed as Elizabeth. 
SOURCE FOR ABOVE INFORMATION: SOUTHSIDE VA FAMILIES, Vol I, by Boddie, 1966, p. 343 
(Other than the fact that Ensign John had moved to Jefferson County, TN and had a son  David who was a member at the 
same time Ransom of Claiborne was also a member of the same Church I have found no direct connection between these 
two Day lines.) Here are others researching this line:
Sue Price Ikerd, Rt. 1,
Box 574, Conway, MO 65632.
Sharon Bryant has added information to the Day line that brings up other points regarding the two John Day families and the name Ransom.
 
(1)John Day and Dorothy Henley of St. James Parish (Goochland).   

Although the birth date does not fit the date of birth that Ransom Day gave in his own pension application.John F.Day III, Los

Altos, California explains:
1762 Jan 15 – VA-Louisa – Birth of Ransom Day

It is my belief that Ransom Day, Rev War Vet VA Line Serial No. R2790, whose Pension application says he was born on 15

Jan 1760 is one and the same Ransom Day, whose birth was recorded in the William Douglas Registry for St. James

Parish (Goochland) as born 15 Jan 1762 to the parents John Day and Dorothy Henley, and who was Baptized on 12 April 1762

(p.62 of the Registry).  I think Ransom, the old man who filed the 1844 pension application, was not sure when he was

born and made a good guess on the pension application.  (HTML)  (PDF)

 

Birth date reported in Revolutionary War Pension Application.  There is evidence from the Court Minutes of TN-Claiborne

that Ransom Day (b. 1760) was a brother to Ambrose Day (b. 1761-1770) and Reuben Day (b.1761-1770).

Claiborne Co., Tennessee, USA, married Nancy HURST, daughter of Thomas H. HURST and Sylvia (Siley) BREEDING, who was born
in 1797 in Of, Wythe, Virginia.  John Ransom died on Nov 28, 1842 in Tazewell,Claiborne Co., Tennessee, USA

P. G. Fulkerson gives Thomas Hurst son of Thomas, came to Big Sycamore Creek about 1800.  He married Sylvania Breeding and
lists his children.  This is in the February 20, 1980 column in the TAZEWELL OBSERVER. I found Nancy Day as the daughter
of John Ransom Day and Nancy Hurst in the Mormon Church records.  No other children were listed. Ransom is under the
church ID number Q025-DP. Patsy Sue Ikerd, Great Great Granddaughter of Ransom Day has furnished me much information.  She
is from Conway, MO.  Met her on Roots on the Internet.

           From the 1880 Census I took that Lucinda was keeping a nephew, since her 
           husband Levi Hurst had died.  I am guessing the R. L. Day is the son of her
           brother John rather than Ransom.

(11) Elizabeth DAY, (John DAY, Ransom, John) was born in 1836 in Claiborne Co., Tennessee, USA, and married Samuel J.
BURDINE, son of Samuel BURDINE and Elizabeth D. Betsy SEWELL, who was born in 1827 in Smith Co., Tn.  Samuel J. died
of wounds he received in Dec 1864 in Veterans Hosp.,
Nashville, Tn. (Document Recorded as Elizabeth filed  for Pension) 

The interesting Payne background cannot be fully appreciated without mentioning the Payne's grandmother or great
grandmother in my case, Elizabeth Payne.
Elizabeth was born in the mid 1800's to Ransom and Sarah Day who lived in the
Springdale community in Claiborne CountyElizabeth's mother was the daughter of Thomas Hurst who was the moderator
of the Primitive Baptist church in 1830 in
Springdale.

Just before the beginning of the Civil War, Elizabeth met a peddler from Virginia, John Burdine, and soon thereafter
married him.  They settled in
Springdale.  When the war started, John enlisted with the Union Army and was stationed in
Virginia.

The following is an account of John Tom Payne in the Claiborne County Progress on Thursday, May 27, 1971. 

John had not been away from Elizabeth for any length of time since the marriage and soon after he arrived in Virginia
with the army, he began to miss his wife and longed to be with her.   John changed to his civilian clothes and road on
horseback to
Springdale to visit Elizabeth, and their two young daughter, Martha Jane (who later married Bill Yoakum,
grandfather of Lon Yoakum in Middlesboro) and Mollie (who was married to Hugh Hodge from Tazewell). [This differs
from the census records of 1880 that lists Mollie as a daughter of Anderson G. Payne and Elizabeth Day.  Mollie was born
in 1867 a year after the marriage of A.G. and Elizabeth].

Soon after John arrived in Springdale, neighbors, who were sympathetic with the Confederates stationed there informed
them that a Union soldier was in
Springdale.  The confederates, thinking John was a spy, caught and promptly hung him.
Elizabeth Burdine was very much upset about this and was hurt deeply that her neighbors had informed on her husbands
presence.  She left the
Springdale community and moved to Orange Co., Va., where her parents had originally came from.
There she resided with relatives.

It was in Virginia that the widow, Elizabeth, met Anderson Payne, who had been wounded in both legs.  Some time in 1866,
Elizabeth married Anderson Payne and shortly thereafter they moved to Claiborne County and settled in Springdale.
Anderson Payne opened a livery stable there and rented horses and buggies or "hacks" as they were called then.  He was
also selling merchandise from a lean to attached to the house. Shortly before the turn of the century, the Payne’s
moved to
Lone Mountain where the railroad had just been completed. Anderson went to work for the railroad as a depot
agent and telegraph operator.  His hack business and the selling of merchandise continued to prosper in
Lone Mountain.

Samuel J. Burdine died in a hospital in Nashville. Transcription follows:

Burdine, L. P. Cl-53-1; Elisabeth Payne formerly widow of: Pvt M Co. 8th TN Cav; 63 to 12-64; Springdale PO; died 
hospital at
Nashville, TN.

L.P. is from the information furnished by list of soldiers died and pensions. The name has also been mistaken for John
BURDINE.

Samuel is from 1860 Claiborne Co. Census, family 760 and from additional research to this point. Still a mystery to the
Payne Family
Children:
+    34  Also in the Russell Co. Va. birth records "Some Russell County Records, Births1 Martha Jane BURDINE was
born in 1861. 1853-1866-Southern Historical Press 1996") I find record of another child of Patton Burdine and
Elizabeth in Claiborne County, TN Elen BURDINE b.  07 Jul 1862 
She also married in 1866 in Springdale, Claiborne Co., Tennessee, Anderson G. PAYNE, son of Hiram E. PAYNE and
Mary Polly ANDERSON, who was born in 1848 in Scott Co., Virginia, USA.  Anderson G. died on Oct 30, 1907 in
Lone Mountain, Claiborne Co., Tennessee, USA and was buried in 1907 in Lone Mountain, Claiborne Co.,
Tennessee, USA

This is my Great Grandfather and began the Payne Family businesses in Claiborne County.  He is listed as a Merchant
on the 1880 Tennessee, Claiborne Co. Census and has all of his children living at home with a step daughter,
M.J. Burdine. His sister Sarah E. Payne is also living with him as well as his Mother in Law Nancy Day and a Boarder
John Phillips. 
In the book The French Broad - Holston Country Social Institutions of Knox County I found the following. 
Just when the Knoxville Benevolent Association ceased to function has not been ascertained, but a new organization with
similar purposes, the Associated Charities of Knoxville, was founded February 25, 1888.  A public meeting, called
at the request of ministers representing various denominations, was presided over by the Reverend Samuel Ringgold.
The following were elected to the Board of Directors:  J. A. Rayl, S. T. Powers, A. B. Strong, T. W. Keller, M. McClung,
A. G. Payne, James R. Ogden, Mike O'Conner, John L. Rhea, H. H. Ingersol, A. J. Albers and A. Lobenstein.
