I am helping my brother inlaw find his roots, the information I have so far goes as follows:

John J. Payne married Elizabeth Kieth. They had at least one son:
Frank Cummings Payne born in Jackson County, TN. and died in S. California.

Maitie Cureton of Marion County, TN married Tyree M. Myers who was half Cherokee indian born in Grundy County, KY. They had at least three children:
Pearl or Pearlie Myers born May 11, 1900 in Allen County, KY and died in West Covina, California.
Frank or Rank Myers
Female Myers

Frank Cummings Payne married Pearl/Pearlie Myers Feb. 18, 1913 in Allen County, KY. It is interesting that they did not have a marriage certificate, they had a marriage bond that both fathers signed. They had two children:
Winters Durwood "Tex" Payne
Myrtie "Myrtle" Velma Payne

We would be greatful for any help with these people.
