Re: Manumission Records Logan Co., OH 1834-1857

Hello Jane,

Here is what the article has for the names you're asking about. I've typed the entries as written in the Clerk of Court records. Caps are mine.

PAYNE:

page 103

" Fauquier Co., Virginia
I Alexander J. Marshall do ceritfy that JAMES PAYNE a dark man large eyes nose rather flat_______large mouth a scar on the wrist of the right hand two small scars on the left hand a large scar on the left leg no other marks perceptible. Aged about 20 years. Five Feet seven & a half inches high who was born free.{Name of Samuel PAYNE is at the top of page.} 29 June 1835

Farquier Co., Virginia
I Alexander J. Marshall...do hereby certify that MOSES PAYNE a black man large eyesflat nose_____a scar on the lower lip two scars on the right third finger of the right hand a large scar on the Knee of the right leg and one immediately about it a large scar on the left part of the forehead no other marks perceptible aged Nineteen years five feet Seven & a half inches who was bor free.....24 September 1833."

The PAYNE papers appear to be 'freedom registration papers" with the dates being 1835 & 1833. They state 'free born' and ages of twenty & nineteen placing their birth years ca 1814 for the nineteen y/o & ca 1815 for the twenty y/o

Entries for JACKSON are found on pages 107 & 129.
