To Connie Polynter:
I read your message on the Ancestry.com mesage board, and got very excited. Recently I have come into the possession of my gg grandfather's death certificate and also that of his sister, Sarah. My gg grandfather was Francis M. Payton born in KY, and their death certificates lists a Nancy Ann Arterburn as their mother, and William Payton as their father. I am working on the genealogy of the Payton family. Can you tell me more about Nancy Ann Arterburn? I have not been able to trace her. I know she was born in 1798, and he in 1801 in KY. They had 5 children: Elizabeth b. 1825, William H. b. 1826, Francis M. b. 1829, Sarah b. 1831, and Mary b. 1836/7. I have been told that she is a daughter of Samuel and Sinia Payton, but have not been able to verify this. I would be so grateful to you if you can help me. My e-mail is: email@example.com
Also I have been told that she had a brother George, but again, I have not been able to locate him. All of their children were born somewhere in KY, and then they moved to IL, and my gg graandfather and his wife, Sarah Jane Starnes, moved to MO. Please let me hear from you. Thanks so much.
