|Archival History||Note at the beginning from the transcriber, C. Bland Payne, one of William H. F. Payne's sons: "This story of the search of Mrs. William H. Payne for her wounded husband, General [sic, Major at the time] William H. Payne, -- a search made a short time before the birth of her son John, was told by her in Warrenton in the summer of 1910, in her 80th year, for her little grandson, Eppa Hunton IV, that he might remember his grandfather's valor. It also evidences his grandmother's devotion to her husband . . . her splendid courage, heroism, and endurance."|
