    • A beautiful woman with a rose-petal complexion. A cosmetic company, Francis Denny, paid her salary for a year to prevent her working for the competition. She didn't have to do anything. She was quite clear in her mind that her features owed nothing to cosmetics-she considered her regular drinks of iced water to be the secret.

      She later had one breast removed. When she was ill young Lewis Adair Payne was called into her room for the purpose of being told that he came from a good family and he was never to forget it. Lewis lived in her home for a time.

      She married Ray Hard. He had invented some sort of oil field tool.

      After Florence died it is believed that a set of beautiful Japanese hand-painted Noritake plates belonging to her was given to Lewis Adair Payne. They are now in the collection of Penny Ethlen Payne.

    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.
