Albert Marx Payne was born in Jackson County, Tennessee. His parents were John J. Payne and Elizabeth Francis Keith Payne. There were 11 children in the family and Albert was number 8. Albert attended the same church that Sallie Viana Denson went to and that is where they met. Albert was flirting with all the girls at church and finally ask Sallie if he could walk her home. She thought he was about the finest boy she had ever seen. He had beautiful thick curly dark hair, and she thought he was real good looking.
When Albert was 19 and Sallie was 18 they were married on December 5, 1905 in Tennessee. After they were married, they lived in a two room log cabin in Jackson County Tennessee. Sallie's first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage when Albert chased her down a hill not knowing she was pregnant.
Eventually through the years they had 11 children. Their first child Arthur only weighed 1 1/2 pounds at birth. He was just like a doll. They could put a teacup over his head he was so small.
The family owned a cow, chickens and pigs, which they raised for their meat. They would gather eggs and take them to the grocery store close by and trade the eggs for staples like coffee, sugar and salt or whatever they needed. In the fall Albert didn't have much to do so he would go up on Cumberland Mountain and hew ties to get a little bit of money.
They had a mule to plow their land, which was on a hillside because Tennessee was not a money making place. In the spring when they were ready to plant their crops, Sallie would go out and help with the planting.
They had a big turkey in the yard, and he used to come up to the door and crow. Sallie would always yell for him to get out because she had heard it was bad luck if a turkey would come up and stand in the door and crow. When Arthur could walk around he would go outside, and that turkey would tackle him and beat him with his wings.
The family moved to Alabama and Sallie had just gotten a new sewing machine which she ordered from Montgomery Wards. She was real talented in sewing even without a pattern. She made all her families clothes. She really hated to sell her machine when the moved but it was necessary. She used a spinning wheel also.
They moved first to Preston, Idaho and worked 121 acres of beets. Then they moved to Riverdale, Utah and the to Ogden, Utah. They bought a 8 1/2 acre fruit farm on 852 Canyon Road.
The food her children remember her making were things like biscuits, fired potatoes corn bread and home made jam and applesauce. She also churned butter and made home made ice cream. Albert and Sallie had 11 children. Albert passed away in Ogden, Utah March 29, 1956.
When Sallie became ill she was living with her daughter Belva Thompson and their family in Roy. She passed away while she was there at the age of 82.
