Re: Payne/Paynes Prince Wm. County, VA
In Response To: Payne/Paynes Prince Wm. County, VA ()
The Payne family you have in the register for Belmont County, lists folks who entered the county under the Black Codes of Ohio, probably are those who later settled in Knox County, Ohio, particularly in Mt. Vernon. You could also try Loudoun County and/or Culpeper County, in VA, for their ancestors. At least one of the Loudoun County, Payne family married my great great aunt Elizabeth Cox, and they resettled in Washington, PA, Washington County, where both died and are buried. Others settled in Knox County, Ohio and at least one family now resides in the Columbus, Ohio area. The Belmont Payne families are also related to the Simmons, Newsome, and Lucas families, who migrated to the Belmont and Guernsey Counties, in Ohio.
