I am looking for further information regarding a Belle Driskell and Charles E. Payne. They were married 13 Nov 1881 in Pettis County, Misouri.I'm trying to find out if they had any children and if Belle died in 1893 or before 1898.
My reason for asking is I have a Charles E. Payne married to a Sophia Gertrude Herrmann in 1898 in my family files.This Charles Payne, according to the 1900 census, had 2 sons prior to his marriage to Sophia Herrmann.The sons names were: Arthur A Payne b. May 1888 and Frank R Payne b.1893.Both boys were born in Missouri.Sophia Herrmann came from Germany.
Belle Driksell was on the 1880 census for Pettis county living with nonrelatives.I'd have to find my file for the details.She was born in Missouri according to the census.
Charles was born in Oct 1861 Ohio according to the 1900 St. Louis City ( I think, it maybe county), Missouri Census. His parents may be John Payne and Jane Day of Licking County, Ohio according to the 1880 Licking County, Ohio census.
