It's something I've always wanted to do but never had the time nor the resources. We will pass this book down throughout the generations.

The Paytons/Peytons of Northeast Georgia II book with its genealogical charts, source information in chronological order, a pedigree chart, Payton pictures, notes, endnotes and documents begins in Amherst County, Virginia, where William Payton, Senior, Junior and Minor lived prior to William Payton, Jr. & family migrating to Northeast Georgia circa 1784. This book contains breakthrough information, reference sources and provides detailed information about William, Cornelius, Leroy, Moses, Gabriel, George and Chesley Payton lines.
This book provides the most current Payton family information with numerous updates, additional family members and source information that was not included in the first edition. You will find 11 generations of Paytons, 930 different Surnames and 4,172 direct descendants of William Payton, Jr.
The Paytons/Peytons started out in Northeast Georgia poor like so many of their fellow constituents during that time. William Payton, Jr. and his sons settled on 300 acres of third quality land in Madison Co, which was not conducive to farming. The Payton's hunted and fished for a living, while two sons of Cornelius; Richard & Isaac Newton were carpenters and probably built log houses or made furniture. The Payton's had no slaves, very few farm animals, probably a one room log cabin they built themselves, no schools so they couldn’t read or write. They also had to contend with, and were often friendly with the Cherokee Indians. As you can imagine they faced many hardships. Their income was not enough to support themselves, so they had to sell their properties in order to pay off their debts – this was a repeat of what happened in Amherst Co., VA at the end of the RW.
