OBITUARY ~ JOHN LONGLEY PAYNE

John Longley Payne was born in Lafayette Co. Penn. Apr. 17. 1833, and departed this life April 24 aged ninety-one years and seven day.

When young, the family moved from Pennsylvania to Ohio and later to Illinois. It was here he came to manhood and was united in marriage to Miss Susan Wilkinson Oct. 19, 1857. To this union were born twelve children, eight of whom still survive. Three died in infancy and a son Walter passed away in his thirty-fourth year.

When Pres. Lincoln made a call for volunteers, Mr. Payne was among those who sprang to the defense of the country. He served in the 84th Ill. Inf. Co. K, until he was honorably discharged in June, 1863.

He came to Iowa with his family settling in Appanoose Co. for nine years and then settled in Taylor Co where he has resided for 49 years.

At the age of thirty seven he accepted Christ his personal Saviour and united with the M. E. Church. He has lived a faithful, devoted man of God and went out with a testimony on his lips, "I am still trusting Jesus".

He is survived by his widow, eight children, and a brother. The sister, Mrs. Mary Wilkinson of Nebraska was unable to come. His brother W. S. Payne of Blackwell, Oklahoma came a few hours after death messenger had come.

Bro. Payne was a friendly, genial man, interested in his neighbors, always desirous of helping where he could, keen and active in habit, a loving husband and father and a staunch friend.

Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at the Methodist church, conducted by the pastor Rev. A. J. Matthews, assisted by Rev S. Boyd Johnson of the U. P Church. The pallbearers were soldiers of the recent World War, and veterans of 186165 and the Relief Corps satin seats reserved. The church was filled with the friends and neighbors assembled, interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
