Melinda, I was interested in your message regarding PAYSON's in Elgin County, Ontario. I have an G. Edward Payson who was in Elgin County in the mid-19th century. He was my gr gr grandfather. We believe he married a McCulley(not too sure of the spelling). Their are Payson's in the St. Thomas Cemetery. What area of Elgin County do you believe you have a connection? Please correspond with me and perhaps we can share information. We have very few records available. I look forward to your reply. Steven.
