About Thomas "Trader" Payne, Sr.

This is a direct quote from "The History of Fanklin County, Georgia". No source is offered.

Page 34: Payne's Creek - in Old King's Bench of original Franklin County was one of the first streams to be named for a white settler or trader. The creek is short as creeks go in Northeast Georgia, but its source was a large spring which was the trading post and fort of Trader Payne, one of the first traders in the Franklin County area. One of his descendents, an offspring of his Cherokee marriage, later married Moses Ayers whose descendents still live in the county. Gene Madden who was raised not far from the spring remembered that a part of the old fort survived into this century and remembered the carved stone where one drank at the springs.
