    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.

    Documents
    Payne, John yDNA of direct male descendant
    Payne, John yDNA of direct male descendant
    Certificate of Y-chromosome DNA testing from The Geneographic Project. Haplogroup R1b is the most common in Western Europe, and are descendants of the Europe's first large-scale human settlers. The marker's frequency is high in northern France and the British Isles where it was carried by descendents who had weathered the Ice Age in Spain.

    The yDNA donor was Paul James Payne of Corpus Christi, now deceased. His line of descent from the immigrant John Payne is as follows:

    John Payne>William Payne>William Payne>Sanford Payne>George Payne>William C. Payne>Thomas Hamilton Payne, I>Walter Winkle Payne>Harry Carl Payne>Paul James Payne
