Hello Mr. Payne,
 My name is Wayne A. Birge and I have several family members Bacon, Birge buried in the PAYNE Cemetery, Barren Co. Kentucky, and I was curious if you knew if that family of PAYNE's were your relation ?  I will attach a few pictures for your viewing. I just saw your name after reading the history of the Cumberland Gap, and I thought there could be a possibility.
Thank You for your time.

Sincerely, Wayne A. Birge
