John H. Payne. The genealogy of this family can be traced directly back to two brothers who, on coming to America, settled on James River, Va., and were among the early colonists. This family is among the old and much respected ones of the country. J. H. Payne was born in Greene County (now known as Clay County), Ark., April 20, 1850, and is the son of B. B. and Nancy (Nettle) Payne, and grandson of James Payne and wife, nee Hitchcock, the latter being of Irish extraction. In 1844 B. B. Payne came to Clay County, Ark., with his wife and family consisting then of three children, and is now living one and a half mile from Greenway. There were nine children in the family, five daughters and four sons, all now married, and six of whom were born after their parents came to Arkansas. There are seventy-five descendants to this family in children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, living at the present time. Jesse Nettle, the maternal grandfather of the subject of this sketch, was of Welsh descent, and his wife, Polly (Derosett) Nettle, was of French extraction. J. H. Payne, one of the rising young men of the county, has filled the office of magistrate for three consecutive terms, and in 1885 he was elected to the XXVth General Assembly of Arkansas. At the present time he is occupied in timber speculations, but previous to this he had made farming a specialty. He is a member of the Missionary Baptist Church, holding credentials as a preacher in the same, and at present is studying for the legal profession. He chose for his wife Miss Susan D. Nettle, a native of Clay County, Ark., and the daughter of William R. Nettle, of Tennessee. She died September 16, 1888, and left five children: J. H., Jr., Laura J., David L., James C. and George. He is a Democrat and takes considerable interest in politics. He lives in Piggott, and practices in the inferior courts of the State.

Do you know the names of the two brothers who came to America? I am looking for info on a Mallon(Mahlon) Payne who was one of two brothers that came over from Ireland and settled in Va. Mahlon b. 1820. Do you know if he is one of two?

Mike,
I have no idea who the two brothers are that came to America. I wish that I did. I am the great-great granddaughter of Boswell Blackburn Payne and Nancy Nettles
Payne. Are you related to this line? I have a lot of information on this family and a picture of them also. I would be willing to share my info.

B.B. Payne's son Thomas Jefferson Payne born 1841, is my
great-grandfather. He married Deborah Nettles who I am trying to find out if she is related somehow to the above Nancy Nettles.

Your John H Payne that married Debbie Nettles, were some of their children Mary, Otto & George? I have an old newspaper clipping from the Piggott Banner about this family starting with B. B. Payne plus my Great Aunt Amanda Duncan was married to Charles Payne son of James Jasper Payne & Martha (Mary) Jane Long (daughter of James H. Long)and sister I think to the orphans she took in 1870 Thomas R. and Newton P. Long. J.J. Payne was the son of Boswell Blackburn Payne & Nancy Nettles.
The Payne family owned the Piggott Banner Newspaper in Arkansas.

Surnames: Payne, Nettles
I am descended from James Payne and Mary Nettles that came to Clay County (Greene Co. at that time) between 1840 and 1850. I suspect that my James Payne was an older brother to Boswell B. Payne. In 1840, the census for Dyer Co., TN has Boswell on it and a James Payne that I believe to be my ancestor. Also, I would guess that my Mary Nettles is related to Nancy Nettles that married Boswell Payne. Sisters, possibly? I'd be interested in sharing any info that might substantiate the relationship between these Paynes and Nettles.
