October, 1997 Queries

        The automated query system was discontinued suddenly on October 27, 1997 as it was losing queries. It is expected the system will be replaced some time in the future. In the meantime queries are supposed to be sent directly to the county coordinators by e-mail. The number of queries this month is unusually small so some may well have been lost. If yours does not appear here, please resubmit it directly to me wmlabach1@insightbb.com and mention Montgomery County.

I am searching for Addie Payne from Stepstone, Ky, b 1852. Her uncle is said to have been John Howard Payne, she is said to have sat on Abe Lincoln's lap at a young age. She married Samuel Buckles and moved to Axtell, Ks. Addie is said to have lived on a large plantation. I don't have any more information other than their children were Albert, Thomas, Samuel, Robert, and Lucy Addison. We have the unusual name Alta Mae as a grandchild of Addie, and I think Addie may be a nickname, a family name, or maybe a middle name. I do know she visited at the home of John Turley in 1907 in Mt. Sterling, Ky. Any help appreciated.
