Looking for information on William Payne, born ca 1796 in RI (poss. Smithfield or Glocester). Married Lydia Barnes, born ca 1799 RI (probably Glocester, Providence Co.). Both died in Chenango Co., NY. They lived in Smithville Flats, Chenango Co.(1840 Preston, Chenango Co.; 1850 Smithville Flats) and possibly buried in Smithville Flats Cemetery.
Had several children Hiram, William, Dennis, Thomas Jefferson, Lydia, Horace, Ira.

Would like to find the parents and lineage of both William Payne/Paine and his wife, Lydia Barnes. William Payne/Paine may have had a sister named Dorcas Payne/Paine, b. Glocester, RI,abt 1800?

Wonder if William Payne/Paine is related to other Payne/Paine families who resided in Smithville Flats/Norwich? Ira B. Paine, Arnold Paine, Thomas Paine,or Jonathan Paine (1810 Norwich). Sharon
