Hi Lillian, Yes I did know that this. But actually, John Thomas William Jefferson Hallmark married Malissa Jane Payne on July 4 1881 in Bell County Tx. I have the marriage certificate. Malissa Jane Payne and Francis Manerva Payne were sisters. They were the children of James Granville Payne and Carrie Manvera Thames. They had 8 surviving children. I do have other information on the family. James Granville Payne was my 2nd Great grandfather. Where do you connect in the Hallmark family?
