I am trying to find information about the family of John Payne and Catherine Arnold, Mary Catherine Payne was born on 4 Aug 1898 in Ashe County NC (some records show 1894) Her marriage certificate lists her parents as John Payne and Catherine Arnold. Is anyone familiar with this family? I am having trouble locating them in census records and vital records. Family lore says that Mary had Native American ancestors (Cherokee). Any information would be appreciated.
