WOW...been researching my Elijah F. Payne for several years, without success...now finding out that the Payne y-DNA doesn't match PAYNE at all...it's a match with Finkbeiner (various spellings)!!
The earliest record I have of Elijah is in 1830 in Hopkins Co., KY. Census records say he was born circa 1806-1809 in either VA or KY. Lived in KY for a while, then moved to MO where he died. Married Keziah Phipps in Gallatin co., IL in 1835.
Suspecting that there was either a formal or informal adoption or an illegitimacy - but can't find Paynes and Finkbeiners (Finkenbinder, Finkbiner, Frankboten, etc) remotely NEAR each other in the early 1800s.
I'm stumped but REALLY want to solve this thing. Any help out there?
