     I descend from Riley Payne.  This whole line moved from Hawkins
Co TN to Greene Co Tn about 1827.  In 1839 they sold the land in
Greene Co. TN and moved to Rock Springs, Walker County Georgia  where
they stayed until after the Civil War.  Most of them moved to
Arkansas.  My bunch moved to Yell County Arkansas and another moved
to Scott Co Ark.  One lone Payne went to Kansas.
