U.S. States: Texas: Young County
I believe Neil's(Neal) parents were Andrew M.
Payne and Sarah C. I located this family unit on the 1860 Bledsoe County, Tennessee census. It also listed a Joseph, age 60 in the household - possibly a grandfather. Other than Neil, it showed a Joseph, age 4.
I know that Neil died in Graham, Young Co. TX in 1911. This information on the death certificate was signed by a Dr. Joseph Payne of Weatherford. I am attempting to determine if this was the brother of Neil.
Neil married Sarah Alameda Kendrick. Their children were: Lester Lavins, Vera M., Otis Kendrick(my grandfather), and Robert Carne. Otis Kendrick came to Texas, married and raised the family in Waco. The other children remained in Tennessee where they are buried.
