Just Off the Road

Just Off the Road
Just off a road not far from our farm is a tiny family cemetery.  It seems to be all Paynes -- the concrete marker above -- which I can't really decipher -- and the family of one James Payne.  Just Off the Road
James H. Payne ( 1838 - 1915 according to information on Find A Grave HERE) seems to have served in the 2nd NC Mounted Infantry.  (Union -- see THIS SITE.) 
Just Off the Road  Mollie (Mary) E. Payne (1848 - 1899) is here . . . Just Off the Road
As is a daughter of theirs . . .
Just Off the Road
And a son . . .
Just Off the Road
There are several rocks which may be foot stones or may be intended as markers.  According to Find a Grave, James had fifteen children by two wives . . . I'll have to pursue this a bit farther . . .
