I think your Elijah Payne is the father of my gg-grandfather James L. Payne born in Missouri. My James L. Payne married Martha L. Watts in Johnson County Arkansas in 1861.
There is an 1850 Arkansas, Johnson County, Spadra Township Census that lists Elijah Payne, Kasiah Payne and the rest of their family, including James L. Payne (my gg-grandfather).
James L. Payne was a veteran of the Civil War (Union Cavalry).
Think there's a connection.
