SPECIAL EDITION OF THE CARTHAGE PRESS MAY 1905

PAYNE & DAVISON, THE REAL ESTATE BROKERS. . . LOANS AND INSURANCE

ONE OF THE OLDEST REAL ESTATE AND INSURANCE FIRMS IN JASPER COUNTY - ORGANIZED AND ESTABLISHED IN 1889.


The largest real estate firm doing a brokerage and commission business in Carthage is that of Payne & Davison. The firm was organized and established in 1889, and is therefore one of the oldest firms in Jasper county.
Mr. A. M. Payne has lived in Carthage about eighteen years, having been in business for four years before the partnership was formed with Mr. M. F. Davison. The latter has lived here for almost a full quarter of a century. Both are thoroughly familiar with Jasper county realty and are in close touch with property values of all kinds. In fact their acquaintance with farm lands, timbered lands, city residence properties and business properties is so intimate, and they have such a confiding faith in the future development and growth of the county that they do practically all of their business on a brokerage basis, exclusively, on both real and personal securities. They discount notes of value and endeavor to make their rates of interest as low as any one else.

Payne & Davison also do a large insurance business. They represent a number of good American companies and write fire, lightning and tornado insurance on farm and city properties. Every farmer should have his property insured and should take his policy out with some good substantial company whose stability and financial responsibilities are known to be the best.
Messrs. Payne & Davison are among the most successful business men in Carthage. Their long years of residence here has convinced them, as it does others, that Jasper county is the chosen field of the country for the investment of money either for a home or for business, or for both. They have some very alluring propositions to offer the inventor or the home seeker, and any one wishing a good home or a profitable business should not fail to see this firm or place themselves in correspondence with it. Both are gentlemen of the highest type of citizenship, honest, liberal minded and loyal to every interest and enterprise for the advancement and betterment of Carthage and Jasper county.

END COMES TO A. M. PAYNE
CONFEDERATE VETERAN VICTIM OF PARALYSIS

At Closed of Civil War He Went West to Mexico and Fought Under Maximilian - Funeral Tomorrow


A. M. Payne, 75 years old, widely known Carthage real estate man, died at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon at the E. M. McPherson home on Orner street, where he was taken recently after he had been stricken with paralysis.
Mr. Payne had been a resident of Carthage 32 years.

Funeral services will be held at Knell chapel at 10:30 o'clock tomorrow. Rev. Dr. A. J. Van Wagner will be in charge. Mrs. Kate Johnson Bryant will sing.

Mr. Payne was born is Daviess county, Missouri July 20, 1845. He belonged to one of the eldest pioneer families in the state, his parents coming from Kentucky to this state in 1832.

He was married in 1869 to Miss Eliza Cheatham of Chattanooga, Tennessee. By this union there were three children born, one son and two daughters. Only one child, Mrs. M. F. Davison of this city survives, the others having died in infancy. The wife died in 1874.

Mr. Payne was a veteran of the Civil War, having served as a member of a Missouri Regiment under General Sterling Price, taking part in many battles, including that of Pea Ridge. He has written many reminiscences of his experience in the southern army, his life as a prisoner of war and his escape.

At the close of the Civil War he was one of the large number of Missourians who had espoused the cause of the south and who refused to surrender when that cause was lost, but made their way to Mexico and entered one of the Armies in that country where the Austrian archduke, Maximilian had proclaimed himself emperor and was striving to hold his own against the Mexicans under Benito Juarez.
Mr. Payne joined the troops of Maximilian and served as a captain in this force until the overthrow of the emperor when he was forced to flee for his life back to the United States to find that a general amnesty had been extended to all ex-Confederates by the American government.

Following the war he spent many years in the southwest, freighting over the old Santa Fe trail, and had many exciting experiences with the Indians who were then roving the plains
