I'm looking for more information about Susanna and her family. Her parents were John Payne and Frances Hall Payne. She married Josiah Johnson Rains (1833-1902) in 1857. They were both buried in Etowah Co. (then Cherokee Co.) AL at Union #3 Baptist Church Cemetary in Ball Play.
Posting # 6413
I have a copy of a deed separating property between J. J. RAINS and wife Susan and W. J. HAWKINS and wife Rebecca L. in Etowah Co., AL 1875 on the Coosa River. It was referred to as the PAYNE PLACE and purchased from John PAYNE, deceased, in his lifetime.
Trying to find my HAWKINS-Kelly's. My Samuel S. KELLY is also buried in Union #3 Baptist Cemetery, Ball Play, Etowah Co., AL as are the RAINS above.
Supposedly there is Cherokee in one or both KELLY & HAWKINS and I see where perhaps from the PAYNE side there may also be according to postings.
