Mr. Clark, I am related to the Payne family that claimed Cherokee descent through Susan Bigby, also known as Susan Bigby Powhatten Waters. I found it most interesting in this post that you mentioned both a Bigby and a Waters. I did alot of searching for the parents of the Payne family Susan Bigby. I finally concluded that quit possibly she could have been a sister to James Biby that married Katherine Foreman. Ms. Carolyn Ellertson said that her family found the connection for Susan Bigby's daughter, Susan Jane Walls, to the Bigby family through papers on the Foreman family. Susan Jane Walls married John Carrol Payne and one of their daughters married Goldman Bryson who was killed in the Civil War by Campbell Harrison Taylor, who was the son of Mary Bigby, daughter of James Bigby and Katherine Foreman Bigby. I was at the genealogy library in Bradley county Tennessee but I did not have the information from Carolyn Ellertson at that time. I hope to make it back to Bradley county but work makes it almost impossible to do it any time soon. Hope you may be able help. Ronnie Sellers
