Re: Payne/Paynes Prince Wm. County, VA

also have George's birthplace as Gallup Place, OH.


Linda...this is wonderful example of regional differences in the pronounciation of towns, cities and locations.

I believe your Gallup Place, OH. is Gallipolis, OH. Gallipolis is located in Gallia County, OH.... southeastern Ohio on the Ohio River. It was a "settling" spot for many newly freed AA's and on a major route of the Underground Railroad in early Ohio history and prior to the Civil War.

If you and Jane don't connect you will still have some excellent documentation on your surnames of interest. Believe me....Hi Jane.
