Payne: Polk County Ancestors/Decendants
Posted by: Bonnie Farner Date: March 31, 2000 at 13:34:14
  of 697

Seeking information especially on Benjamin Franklin Payne, Son of John Carroll Payne and Susan Bigby Powhattan Watters (spelling?)

John Carroll Payne was born between 1790-5;]
d. August 1865; He was married to Jane Susan Walls. I was told that the family lived somewhere in Polk County, TN

Their son, Benjamin Franklin Payne was born in 1831; died October 22, 1908 in Coker Creek, TN. His mother, Jane Walls, is supposed to have been 1/2 Cherokee.

Benjamin applied with the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, Washington, DC to claim benefits through his mother. He stated that "his mother, Jane Walls, was a daughter of Henry Walls who married a daughter of Powhattan and came of a Cherokee Squaw by name Susan Bigbee." "Application #19562, March 28, 1907."

I'm willing to swap any information on the ancestors and decendants.
Please email me at rfarner@tellico.net
Thanking all in advance,
Bonnie Farner
Coker Creek, TN
