  • Notes 
    • "He was a farmer, and a soldier in the Confederate Army, and was known as James Wi Payne -- the Wi being a contraction of Withers. This practice of attaching a special surname to those Payne men in this community who possessed the same baptismal name extended through several generations and resulted in some picturesque combinations that would make up an interesting chapter." [The Paynes of Virginia, citation details below]
