i was doing family research and came across one Laura R Payne, who is my 2nd great grand mother born between 1895-1900 possibly lee county VA (+-) D April 12 1971 and is buried in rogersville Tenn, no other information... no parent names no marriage cert or definitive birth date she married Emmett Myers and became Laura P Myers, and had 7 kids with one dying at 2 years old. they are Claudia, Willene, Mary, George, Elva, Ruth (died at 2) and Don. According to family talk, she was a cherokee native American. which would explain the scarce details. and lived in a community that bordered Cherokee lands at the time, (which may lead to an answer) there is no further information on ancestry or on google the would explain her parents names. not even the paynes of Virginia book has them in it. it took me an act of congress just to even find her obiturary.
