Saw your posting - Rufus Payson and Cynthia Dunn had at least one child, Alanson Payson b. abt 1819 in New Brunswick. My husband's line goes from Alanson's son Herbert Newton Payson and forward.

Rufus' father was Jonathan Payson, mother Abigail Whitney. We are still working on sorting out this file as it seems there were two Payson lines who went to Annapolis from Massachusetts about the same time. Then, they each had massive amounts of children - naming them similarly of course. There are two Rufus Paysons with conflicting data - one stayed in Annapolis area, while the other went to New Brunswick. Many researchers have got these two Rufus Paysons confused so our family has members who are actually trekking to New Brunswick each year to record data facts for comparison to determine the truth. We know for certain that Herbert Newton is the son of Alanson, and Alanson is the son of Rufus and Cynthia.

Hope this helps,
Dianne McLean
