There is some John Payne confusion in this message. (Why oh why did the
Paynes need to name all of the boys John, George or William? <g>) The line
to the two boys in the painting is George Payne, John Payne, Archer Payne.
Dolly Payne's line is George Payne (the same as the other line, sheriff of
Goochland Co., VA), Josias Payne, John Payne. Josias Payne did move to live
out his life with his family in Pittsylvania Co. with his son, but it was
son Robert, not son John; John had moved to Philadelphia, PA. Here are 4
generations of Paynes that might help with some untangling. I have a lot of
info on these Goochland Paynes and I'm willing to share w/ anyone
interested. I'm a descendant of Josias 3 times over. (They intermarried in
the family a lot, too. Cuts down on the genealogy work one has to do when
the lines back converge! <g>)

>Licking Hole Creek in Goochland County, which both Josias and his

>he died here. His will was recoreded in 1785. John, the Safety
>Committee member, married Mary Coles of Coles' Hill of Hanover County,
>and they were the parents of Dolley who apparently grew up in Hanover.
> Another family of Paynes was equally prominent--that of Ruben, William,
>and Philemon. They owned large grants of land in Pittsylvania before it
>was Pittsylvania, moving here from Essex County. They were the sons of
>Thomas Payne. Other early Paynes were Robert and Abraham. Reuben was
>named justice when the county assumed its present size in 1777 and a
>lieutenant in thecounty militia when it was gearing for war. He served
>as a vestryman of Camden Parish until 1779 when he resigned, refusing to
>pay taxes through the Church of England. Philemon was appointed deputy
