Re: John Paya aka Maxime Paille, b1825
Jane Moore had a sister Ursula(Iphengia Thersile)Moore who married Jean Calixtus Maxime Payet. He was born in 1810.They were married in Mt Clemens, Michigan in Nov 1846.
Maxime Paille was married to Jane Moore, in Feb 1846, probably in Mt Clemens also.He was born about 1825.Since he later went by the name of John M, I would guess his first name was Jean.
I do not know if Jean Maxime Paille is connected to Jean Calixtus Maxime Payet, other than they married sisters.But it does seem plausible.
