Seeking the origins and information on the Wayne Family, particularly JOHN WAYNE, who settled with wife MARY WAYNE on Little Whipping Creek in Campbell County in April 1789. The WAYNE's remained in the county 16 years, selling the 200 acre property in 1805, then moved on to Bourbon County Kentucky. Children Benjamin (to Nancy Tankersley in 1801) and Betsy (to Matthias Scott in 1804) were married in the county during the period and John is listed as bondsman in a number of other marriages.
