For years I have been trying to determine the ancestry of JOHN PAYNE, a resident of Washington County, Indiana in the early and mid 1800s.He was born circa 1794 in Virginia (exact date/location/parents unknown), and married MARY MARTIN (born 2-20-1795 Shelby County, Kentucky to Joseph T. and Margaret Sellers Martin) on 1-5-1815 in Shelby County, Kentucky.They were the parents of five daughters:
1. Emily T. Payne (born 10-21-1815 Shelby County KY; married 3-27-1936 Washington County IN to William Sage; died 7-19-1855 Brownstown, Jackson County IN) 2. Marietta Payne (born 1817 Washington County IN; married 1-22-1835 Washington County IN to John Hornaday; died 1875 Jackson County IN) 3. Lucy Ann Payne (born 1819 Washington County IN; married 2-6-1840 Washington County IN to Johann Philip Fable; died 1-6-1900 North Vernon, Jennings County IN) 4. Frances Eliza Payne (born 1824 Washington County IN; married 3-7-1844 Washington County IN to Reason A. Redman; date/place of death unknown) 5. Elizabeth Jane Payne (born 1-26-1829 Washington County IN; never married; died 4-1-1915 Martinsburg, Washington County IN)
I invite others doing research of Washington County individuals with the PAYNE surname to post their information here, so that we might discover how the various individuals might be related.
