This is just an introductory page, to the Payne family line.
To link to the "Payne" family, we'll have to travel through the "Allen" first.
When we look further into the line of my grandmother Carlie Ann Allen, we see that Alex Allen, born 1868, (son of George Allen, and Anna Shan), was Carlie's father. From here, we'll take a look at the sister of Alex. Her name was Lucretia "Creasy Allen, born 1863. Creasy, married Shadrick Payne, born 1855 of Gladstone, Nelson, VA.
See the Allen Family of Shipman, Nelson, VA.
Shadrick, and Creasy had 25 children in total, but only 18 of them survived. These children married into the Hicks, Wheeler, Kidd, Ellis, Johnson, Brown, Revely, Glover, Irving, and Taliaferro family lines.
From here, we can introduce the sister Shadrick Payne. Her name was Ellen Payne, born 1850. She married Dandridge Mead, born 1848, and moved to Massies Mill, Nelson, VA. - We'll examine the Mead family of Massies Mill, in the "Mead (e,s)" family line section.
