From HISTORY OF VERMILION COUNTY, by H. W. Beckwith; published in Chicago, 1879; at page 637:

A. G. Payne, Catlin, son of John and Verlitta Payne, was born in Danville township, Vermilion county, Illinois, on the 20th of May, 1838. On the 2d of January, 1859, he was united in marriage to Miss Rhoda Green, a native of Jefferson county, Indiana, born on the 13th of January, 1840. By this union they have been blessed with five children, of whom three are living: Charles W., John H. and Udocia V. The names of the deceased are Margaret M. and Hettie H. Mr. Payne is a chapter member of the Masonic lodge, No. 82, Danville, and also a member of Catlin lodge, No. 285. Mr. Payne took an active part in the rebellion. He enlisted on the 14th of September, 1861, as private in Co. C, 5th Ill. Cav. On the 21st of August, 1862, he was appointed corporal, and, on the 13th of March, 1863, sergeant. He reenlisted on the 1st of January, 1864, in the same regiment and in the same company, and was appointed quartermaster-sergeant on the 1st of September, 1864. On the 17th of February of that year he was made first sergeant, and first lieutenant on the 19th of May, 1865. He was promoted to brigade provost-marshal on the 25th of August, 1865, and to captain of Co. D on the 4th of October, 1865. Mr. Payne was at the siege of Vicksburg and Champion Hill, Yazoo City, Jackson, Mississippi, Grand Gulf, and others. He was mustered out on the 27th of October, 1865, and returned to Vermilion county, where he engaged in farming until 1871, and since then he has been in the mercantile business, the firm being now known as Payne & Crutchley.
