    Hi - noticed your question to David Payne. The children of Margaret Adaline Munday and William Riley Payne are the first four you show - thru John R. born 1864 (born, by the way, while William Riley was away fighting in the Civil War). Nancy Evaline Munday's children start with Andrew Jackson born TN in 1866. Apparently William and Nancy were never legally married, as we have found no divorce record for the first wife. However, they lived together as husband and wife from 1865 thru his death in 1892 and had a bunch of children. My gfather George W Payne (one of the twins with Benjamin F) was the youngest child, born 1889.
    Nancy Evaline homesteaded in 1897 in what had been Indian Territory (now Jackson County, Oklahoma) and I grew up on that place. They were quite an interesting family. Sue Payne Dinse Luther, OK
