Biography of Hiram Payne
Barton, Tioga County, NY Biographies





HIRAM PAYNE was a native of Connecticut, and came to McKean county, Pa., about 1830. He was a surveyor, lawyer, and otherwise prominent man; was district attorney of the county, a member of the legislature and had an extended acquaintance all through central and western Pennsylvania. His wife was a daughter of Rev. Minor York, of Wysox, by whom he had six children. Five of these came with the family to Waverly in 1854, at which place Mr. Payne afterward lived, and where he died March 30, 1882. Mr. Payne was in all respects a self made and self educated man; a strong pro slavery democrat, firm and unyielding in his belief. Still, he was broad minded, of liberal views on general subjects, and his life in Waverly was such as to convince the observer that he was at least in comfortable circumstances, yet he died poor.
