I am not sure if my grandfather is related to Benjamin F. Roberts. I am currently researching my family, too. If this looks like it could be a match, please let me know. THANKS!
Thomas Benjamin Roberts was my grandfather. He was born in 1908 and died in 1983. He was married to Ina Kate Wigington (1921-1967), and they had four children - Doris, Charles, James "Sonny", and Susan. They lived in and around the Atlanta metro area including Cherokee County. My information is very limited regarding his family history. My Aunt Susan said that his parents were Ben and Maddie/Mattie Roberts. They had several children - TB, Fain, Brownie, Dimple, and Betty. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
To any one who knows the connection of the Rev John D. Payne buried at New Hope Church Pea Ridge Road Cornelia Ga . I would like to know the connection to the Paynes in South Carolina , North Carolina ,Tennesse, and Kentucky. My great great grand father was the Rev. John D. Payne who served in the Military and was down here in Ga durning the Civil War and met and married my great great grandmother Mary L. If any one knows her Madien Name i would appreciate learning that as well. I suspect that she was a Murphy or a Morris but am not certain. If you have any family bibles or geneologies with his children I would also like to know for i suspect that I am related to the other Payne familes that live here in Habersham, Stephens County and Banks County.
I am the Great Granddaughter of Rev. John D. Payne through his son Enoch. Mary L. Murphy is the daughter of Uriah Murphy. From my gecom file that you can get from RootsWeb's World Connect. Data Base :2558717 labeled North Georgia. Feel free to contact me. The world connect contact information is wrong.

Dear Kary, I met a lady that said our ansestors were related to the South Carolina Paynes thru the line of Opal Payne who is still living. I have not yet been able to contact her but she is suppose to know John D Payne's South Carolina relatives.
I am the great great grand daugter of John D Payne thru Enoch Payne and his son( my father) Joe Payne who is still living you could probably contact my father for more info on the payne family.
I know Rayge, I saw him a few months ago, in church. My father is Joe Payne, he and Rayge are first cousins. Most of what I know is located in the gedcom file I refrenced above. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ask me whatever you want, if I know I'll tell you... I might even be able to dig up some old family photos to share.
I been doing research too. I found out that we are related to Opal Payne of Habersham County and that she is an elderly Lady that knows the relatives of John D Payne from South Carolina I how ever havent found her number or address as of yet but will try to find out soon. Love ya Alesia
