Mr. Adkison was born and reared in the Egypt neighborhood, was loved and will be missed by all who knew him.

Dady, Audrey (I2837)
29 Banyan was a son of Daniel and Nancy Wright Payne originally from Kershaw County, South Carolina. Daniel died when his children were still young, in 1807, but their mother Nancy was left as the executor of Daniel's estate which consisted of a plantation and a few slaves. Daniel's will stipulated that his land not be sold until after the first of his children would marry, which occurred when daughter Elizabeth married Dr. John Millar in 1814. About 1818 the entire family unit including widowed mother Nancy, the Millars (who by then had two children), Banyan, and younger brother Wiley moved to the newly opened Chickasaw lands near Morgan County, Alabama where they would reside until after Nancy's death in 1827.

Sometime before 1830, Banyan married Sinthia Owen, daughter of John Owen and Mary Byrd. About 1832, Banyan and Wiley moved their families to Tipton County, Tennessee. Banyan settled in District 7 near the little town of Portersville and began to prosper greatly. He married Malinda A. Thompson on June 15, 1835 at Memphis, Tennessee. They had two children: John Liewellen in 1837 and Malinda Elizabeth in 1839. Banyan's wife, Malinda, died in January, 1841. She never recovered from having her second child. In September, 1841, Banyan married for a third time to Nancy M. Wright, his wife Malinda's niece. This union resulted in nine more children. In 1849 he was a named beneficiary along with his two siblings and several cousins at the dispersal of his Aunt Rachael Payne Leigh's estate from South Carolina. Banyan was a successful businessman on his own as well as one of the largest landowners in Tipton County by the time of his death in 1878. Four of his sons served on the side of the Confederacy (Dr. John L., Daniel W., Romulus "Rome", and Virgil Payne), although Banyan himself was not originally in favor of secession. By the time of his death, Banyan owned both a saw mill and a grist mill as well as several thousand acres in various parts of Tipton and Shelby Counties which he willed as individual units to his wife and his many children. He was buried on his "home place", located about two miles east of what was then known as Portersville, which is know today as Atoka.

32 Bettie Blaydes was the daughter of Banyan Payne (1800-1878) and his second wife, Malinda Ann Thompson (1804-1841). Following her mother's death in 1841, she and her older brother, John Liewellyn Payne were reared by their father and new step-mother, Nancy M. Wright Payne, niece of their mother. Bettie's brother John and Dr. James Elliott Blaydes attended medical school together in Nashville, Tennessee. When the Civil War ended, Dr. Blaydes set up his practice in Portersville (now Atoka), not far from the Banyan Payne home place. Bettie and Dr. Blaydes were married on May 3, 1866. They had six children, three of whom lived to adulthood. When her father died in 1878, Bettie inherited property which enabled the Blaydes' to live comfortably and manage their financial affairs well. Payne, Malinda Elizabeth "Betty" (I756)

50 Deputy Chester Doyle was shot twice in the back and killed as he and other officers raided the back room of a cafe where an illegal dice game was being held. Deputy Doyle managed to return fire killing one man and wounding another. A third man was arrested and charged with his murder. Due to the threat of mob violence, the Tipton County Sheriff had the suspect transferred to the Memphis City Jail for safekeeping. A month later he was returning with the suspect when six armed men forced his car off the road eight miles from Covington and seized his prisoner. The suspect's bullet riddled body was found hours later face down in a creek with a rope around his neck. Deputy Doyle had served with the Tipton County Sheriff's Office for nine years.
