    Notes 
    • Ken Harvey notes that "he was recorded on the 1870 Shelby County, Missouri census and shown as age 17, making his year of birth approximately 1853. He went by the name Scott, and was named after the Civil War General Winfield Scott.

      In 1880, he was in Montague, Texas, with his wife and step-children.

      A W. C. Payne was recorded, in Montague County Courthouse Marriage Book B, page 471, as marrying Nora Popejoy on 24 Nov. 1887. This could well be our Winfield Scott Payne. The initial "C." could be an error for "S." This ceremony was conducted by J. F. Shelton, Minister of the Gospel. If this is our Scott Payne, it would have been a second marriage. The 1900 census shows him as the father of two children born between 1876 and 1879. Their names are unknown. Lewis Payne vaguely recalled that Scott's wife was named Lou. Kenneth Harvey shows he remarried circa 1894 to Alice (Unknown), born circa 1852 in Texas.

      Around 1889, the family moved North to Indian Territory. Scott's wife probably died soon therafter (deduced by Ken Harvey based on the 1900 I.T. census)."

      In a biography of his brother, William Henry Harrison Payne, he was referenced as "Winfield, near Red Moon, Oklahoma." In another biography, this one of his brother-in-law, John O'Neill, he was referenced as "Winifred (sic), at Butler, Oklahoma."

    Married
    • In the Loring section, page 4, of the "mcclanahanhistory.com" website,  Alice America Loring is shown as a daughter of John N. "Jack" Loring and a granddaughter of Frederick Loring. She was also shown as married first to James CALLOWAY, and second to Winfield Scott PAYNE. The webiste incorrectly shows Winfield Scott Payne as a son of Charles Payne and Martha Medley, and also cites an erroneous date and location of birth for him, that of 12 Mar 1849 in Van Buren County, Tennessee. The 1900 Custer County, Oklahoma census shows Winfield Scott Payne as being born in Feb. 1853 in Missouri. The 1860 Shelby County, MO census shows 7 year old Winfield with his parents, Thomas Hamilton Payne and Martha Jane Marshall.
