Payne Family
The back of the picture says that the man is John Payne the brother of Susan Payne,
and his wife. There are two women in the photo and which is which is not presently
known. Also who is the other woman? John and Susan Payne were the children of
William Payne b. 1818 and Martha Thornton Garrett b.1826. The 1850 Smith Co
Census gives Johns age as 10. I would appreciate any information anyone has on
John. I believe his wife was named Hattie, but have not confirmed this.
