We know very little of Carrie Harriet (Hattie ) Payne. We know that she was born in 1859, the second to last child of John Payne, Jr. and his second wife, Priscilla Beezly. She is 23 years younger than her oldest half-brother, Addison C. Payne and is only 4 years old when her father is gunned down on the streets in front of the courthouse of Danville, Ill. in 1863. She marries Dr. James Barrow and dies in 1892. Her grave is among those in the family plot of her brother James Buchanan Payne in Potomac, Illinois. Why she buried in a place without her husband is up to speculation.
