Stephanieepperson52 has published an excellent Payne summary on line at The following notes re Daniel and Martha are included:

"From Loy Payne's Book, "A Family Album of the Payne Generation", page 23

Some of the old history given and taken from old Bibles of long ago concerning the Old Plantation of Daniel Payne, back in 1798, when he came to Monroe County, Kentucky, and homesteaded on Hackenbranch.

He occupied some 200 acres of land and became a slave holder for some 30 years. He also became holder of other land in this community, one tract of which the Payne Cemetery is located. He gave the ground for a graveyard and the remainder to his son James Payne. Daniel Payne was married to a daughter of Elihu Fraizer in 1803, to this union was born 13 children. He retired from slave holdings, and gave his negros to his son Daniel Thomason Payne, Jr. except one negro girl he gave to his son John Payne in 1840 as a gift as a wedding present. His father died in 1845. His plantation fell to his son Daniel Thomason Payne, Jr.

In later years he and N. T. Stoffman built a water mill for grinding corn, run by water that came out of a large spring that came out of the foothills of the plantation. A very large spring, the water was channeled into a fobay which was kept to run through the mill on a waterwheel for power. In later years the mill fell into the hands of H. K. Payne, later was sold to Uncle Tom Rich. He ran the mill by token toll, one gallon of corn for every bushel of corn he ground finely. Uncle Tom got so feeble he could no longer take care of the trade, so he gave it over to his son-in-law Bud Davis, who ran it for a few short years and closed the mill and quit. No mill there any more, just the old spring, still running the same."
