|Captain David L. Payne, is a
veteran of the Civil War for whom Payne County, Oklahoma is named.
Captain Payne is also known as the Father of Oklahoma and led several
groups of settlers into the area of Indian Territory, now the site of
Stillwater, Oklahoma. Payne served in the 10th Kansas Infantry Regiment
during the war. A memorial has been erected over his burial site in
Stillwater's Boomer Lake Park. The site is marked by the original
gravestone erected by the James Shield Post #57 of the Grand Army of
the Republic of Wellington, Kansas where he was originally buried.
Payne County was opened to settlement in the Oklahoma land
run of 1889.
