Re: Laura Payne MYERS of Hawkins County TN

Classification: Query

Laura PAYNE and her family listed on the Dawes Roll (Card 810) were Seminole Freedmen.
They were former Slaves (African) of the Seminole Indians.
Tom, Annie and their children were residing in Seminole County OK in 1920.
Place of birth for this family is Oklahoma.

Census records indicate that your Laura was white and both she and her parents were born in TN.
She is listed in the 1920 census for Hawkins County, married to Emmett MYERS.

According to your tree, Laura was born July 2 1898 in Tennessee and died October 1971 in Hawkins County TN.
It might be an idea to obtain a copy of her Death Certificate, SS Application and obituary to confirm her maiden name and names of parents.

You may find further assistance by posting to a relevant surname or location board.
