      Note:
      Our records show that George M. Payne was born in Madison County, Kentucky., about 1806. He died in Mason County, Kentucky, in July of 1834.

      He married Mary Jane Shackelford, daughter of James and Elizabeth Clarke-Shackleford, December 5, 1831. She was born in Mason County, Kentucky., February 6th, 1811, and died August 7, 1849. They had only one child--a daughter:

      Elizabeth Payne,-----------(married James A. Johnson)

      Lieutenant John Marshall was born at Happy Creek, now Warren County, Virginia., July 27, 1804. He died on September 18, 1855, place not shown. He married for his first wife, Mary Jane Shackelford-Payne, the afore mentioned widow of George M. Payne, May 18, 1836. Our records show they had the following children: James, William, Charles and Robert Marshall. But in the division of the estate of Lt John Marshall, October 17, 1859, the following legatees were mentioned: James Marshall, Alexander K. Marshall, Mary M. Marshall, John Marshall, Lucy A. Marshall and John Chambers.

      We have never been able to secure an explanation of the discrepancies in the above records, therefore we would be grateful to any one that can give us correct information of the John Marshall family.
