Re: John Payne/ /Ben Payne / William B Payne Kershaw, NC/ Lowndes AL/ Wood/ TX
This is not my line, but I am interested in the DNA of all Payne's.See:
The Family Tree Payne DNA chart three names up from the bottom shows a:
162492 Benjamin Payne (b. 1780, Kershaw, SC, d. 1850, AL)
Could this be your Benjamin?
This Benjamin is interesting in that his DYS447 marker has a value of 32--one of only two with this value on the chart.If you look up the chart about fifty names you will find another Payne with a 32 value for this marker:
50804 John Payne, b.c.1732 NC, d. 1780 Kershaw Co., SC
(This discrepancy is due to the way the chart is organized--kit numbers are listed in numeric value of the markers, left to right in ascending order.)
According to a John Payne researcher (who also arranged for the Benjamin Payne test) there is a John Payne family bible that mentions a Benjamin Payne, but not as a direct relation perhaps as a nephew.The family background of John Payne is unknown while many say Benjamin Payne is a son of Archibald, son of Nehemiah Payne, b. 1733 in Dosset, MD per Rev War records.
