FANE - Arkansas Southeast Counties

We know very little about the family of my grandmother, Hannah Jones. Hannah died when my aunt was less than 3 and my father was just over a year old.
According to my aunt, she had a sister named Fannie. My aunt remembered Fannie's son as Willie Payne (or Paine, etc.). She never met her aunt, and this was the only cousin she ever met, but, she recalled that Fannie had "a bunch of chillun." I have had no luck with that name, having searched marriage records, census records, etc.

My grandmother was born in Chicot County, Arkansas (1880/1881), but the earliest census I've found her on is in Mississippi, actually not that far from where she was born. Today, just trying out my new computer and monitor, I looked back at that census. I discovered a Frances FANE living next to my grandmother in the 1900 census, (Coahoma County, Mississippi). On that census, the parents of my grandmother are shown as born in Louisiana, (never mind that it is different on later censuses..) those for Frances are the same. Her husband is Charles Fane. And I recalled that Fannie is sometimes a nickname for Frances.

I subsequently found Frances and her family, with her name as "Fannie" Fane, husband, Charles, Charlie, Chas..... in 1910, 1920 and 1930, in Chicot County, Drew County and Lincoln County Arkansas. I have tallied 13 children, which I think qualifies as "a bunch." ;^)

Now I am looking for any living descendants of this FANE couple....
