      Duncan Banner  November 29, 1907 A Pretty Home Wedding
          The beautiful home of Mr. and Mrs. Jno O'Neill was the scene of a pretty home wedding Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock when their daughter, Miss Annie J., was united in marriage to Mr. J.R. Sparks, Father Urban De Hasque officiating.
          The house was tastefully decorated with crysanthemums and potted plants and brilliantly lighted, the effect producing a harmonious feeling of joy and good cheer--an omen of good luck.  After the ceremony the guests assembled around the pre-Thanksgiving festal board and partook of an elegant wedding breakfast.
          A number of immediate friends of the family were in attendance and the contracting parties were the recipients of many handsome presents.
          The bride is a highly accomplished young lady, possessing many charms of both mind and heart, and has grown to womanhood in this city.  The groom is sober, industrious and reliable well worthy of the flower he has plucked from the beautiful home garden.  They start out in their new relations under most auspicious circumstances and with the best wishes of a host of friends.
          The Banner joins in the hearty and sincere congratulations that are being showered upon them and hopes their wedded life will prove one long, sweet dream of happiness, contentment and prosperity.

    PAYNE FAMILY REUNION - 1927
Home of Aunt Annie (O'Neill) Sparks - 
303 Hickory, Duncan, Oklahoma
    PAYNE FAMILY REUNION - 1927 Home of Aunt Annie (O'Neill) Sparks - 303 Hickory, Duncan, Oklahoma
    This 1927 Payne Reunion photo is of 41 people. On September 21-23, 1999, Charles R. Strong along with his mother, Anna Laura "Rooney" (Payne) Strong and two aunts – Dora Fay (Payne) Pierce-Yeager and Lois Marie (Payne) Hanna reviewed the picture. The late Lewis Adair Payne had already prepared his own list identifying all persons. Both list had errors. Mary Gwendolyn “Marilynn” (Payne) Wade of Marlow later helped Charles Strong reconcile the two lists and correct some errors. One reason for differences in the two lists was due to the existence of two pictures, which were almost, but not exactly, identical. This photo slightly differs from Aunt Annie’s version.
