Birth*circa 1793 Samuel was born at Columbia Co., Georgia, circa 1793. 
Relocationbetween 1808 and 1815 He was an accompanying familiy member in the relocation of William Isaac Payne between 1808 and 1815 at Twiggs Co., Georgia
War of 1812*between 1813 and 1814 Samuel was reported in one genealogy to have been a major or colonel in the Army during the War of 1812. However, while he may have fought in it, it is unlikely he would have held such a high rank ar such an early age.

Deed*Sep 1818 He was granted a deed in Sep 1818 at Butler Co., Alabama,

Records from the Cahaba Land Co. Receivers Office in Milledgeville, GA, (Book 300) show John and Samuel Payne of Twiggs Co. bought land at Sec 3, Tsp 10, Rng 14. At the same time William Payne from Twiggs Co., GA bought land in Butler Co., AL, Sec 26, Tsp 11, Rng 14.2,3 
Relocation14 Jan 1819 "On the evening of the 14 Jan 1819, the peace of the happy forest of oaks was disburbed by a train of emigrants" and the Paynes were listed among the first settlers to arrive (in what was soon to become Butler Co., AL). In Ball's History of Clarke County, AL (pp. 330-331), there is the assertion that "William Isaac Payne and Mary Abigail Shouse [sic] (from Twiggs Co., GA) joined the Coleman Caravan in Dalton, GA in 1817 and moved west to Lowndes Co., AL." Actually, William Sr. died in Twiggs Co. in 1818, and the William cited must have been his son William Jr. who moved with his brothers and their Mother. Also, the 1817 date seems premature based on the date of death of William Sr in Twiggs Co.4 
Voted1 Aug 1820 Butler Co., AL was created 13 Dec 1819 and the first election was held in Aug 1820. Included on the list of voters were three of the sons of William Payne: Samuel, Daniel and John.5

Biography* Colonel Matthew Wood was extremely influential in the early affairs of the parish. He married Hannah Payne and was a tavern keeper in Fort Dale, northwestern Butler County Alabama between about 1818 and the early 1830s. He was elected colonel of the Butler County militia in 1823. In the early 1830s, he moved from Fort Dale into southern Lowndes County (just north of Butler). In early 1835, he traveled to north Louisiana and bought land in what is now Union Parish. He remained there that year, and in December 1835 again purchased land. About three weeks later, he had returned to Lowndes County, sold his plantation there, and led a large group of Butler & Lowndes County settlers to north Louisiana. This is the first known migration of a large group of Alabama settlers into what is now Union Parish. They settled along Bayou D'Loutrein eastern Union Parish. Wood later served as the first president of the Union Parish Police Jury. His son-in-law John Taylor was the first parish judge, and son-in-law William Cleaton Carr was the first sheriff.
     On 19 December 1817, the Georgia Legislature changed the following names and legitimatized these children of Matthew Wood [Paine should be Payne]:
          Jane Paine to Jane Wood
          Samuel Paine to Samuel Wood
          Thompson Paine to Thompson Wood
          Willis Paine to Willis Wood
     Matthew Wood was married to another woman in Georgia, and about 1812 he went to south Louisiana with Daniel Payne. I've been told that he returned to Georgia about 1815, divorced his first wife, then married Hannah Payne (sister of Daniel), who had borne him the four children named above. The Georgia legislature then legally changed the children's names from "Payne" to "Wood".... For the Georgia Legislature to take this action, he undoubtedly went before them and declared he was their father....
     Jane Wood (formerly Payne) married Union Parish Judge John Taylor in Alabama and moved with her father to what is now Union Parish in February 1837. She was buried in the Taylor/Liberty Hill Cemetery. The other Woods lived in Union, Lincoln, and Claiborne Parishes.6

Matthew Wood

Male, #43214, (29 Jul 1791 - 20 Oct 1855)
Travel* In 1810 Matthew Wood of Twiggs County was issued a permit to "travel through the Creek Nation of Indians." to Alabama.1 
Birth*29 Jul 1791 Matthew was born at Georgia on 29 Jul 1791. 
Marriage*1808 He married Hannah Payne at Georgia in 1808. 
Relocation1837 He was an accompanying familiy member in the relocation of Daniel Payne in 1837 at Ouachita Parish, Louisiana
Event-Misc1839 Daniel Payne and his son-in-law, Needham Bryan, as well as Matthew Wood, and his two sons-in-laws, John Taylor & William Cleaton Carr, were all instrumental in forming Union Parish from Ouachita Parish in 1839. The records of Union Parish are replete with their names in this endeavor. 
1840 Census*1 Jun 1840 Matthew was listed as the head of a family on the 1840 Census on 1 Jun 1840 at Union Parish, Louisiana.
((1M15-19, 1M40-49, 1F15-19, 1F40-49)).2 
Death*20 Oct 1855 He died at Louisiana on 20 Oct 1855 at age 64. 
Burial*after 20 Oct 1855 His body was interred after 20 Oct 1855 at John Stowe Cemetery, Lincoln Parish, Louisiana
Biography* Colonel Matthew Wood was extremely influential in the early affairs of the parish. He married Hannah Payne and was a tavern keeper in Fort Dale, northwestern Butler County Alabama between about 1818 and the early 1830s. He was elected colonel of the Butler County militia in 1823. In the early 1830s, he moved from Fort Dale into southern Lowndes County (just north of Butler). In early 1835, he traveled to north Louisiana and bought land in what is now Union Parish. He remained there that year, and in December 1835 again purchased land. About three weeks later, he had returned to Lowndes County, sold his plantation there, and led a large group of Butler & Lowndes County settlers to north Louisiana. This is the first known migration of a large group of Alabama settlers into what is now Union Parish. They settled along Bayou D'Loutrein eastern Union Parish. Wood later served as the first president of the Union Parish Police Jury. His son-in-law John Taylor was the first parish judge, and son-in-law William Cleaton Carr was the first sheriff.
     On 19 December 1817, the Georgia Legislature changed the following names and legitimatized these children of Matthew Wood [Paine should be Payne]:
          Jane Paine to Jane Wood
          Samuel Paine to Samuel Wood
          Thompson Paine to Thompson Wood
          Willis Paine to Willis Wood
     Matthew Wood was married to another woman in Georgia, and about 1812 he went to south Louisiana with Daniel Payne. I've been told that he returned to Georgia about 1815, divorced his first wife, then married Hannah Payne (sister of Daniel), who had borne him the four children named above. The Georgia legislature then legally changed the children's names from "Payne" to "Wood".... For the Georgia Legislature to take this action, he undoubtedly went before them and declared he was their father....
     Jane Wood (formerly Payne) married Union Parish Judge John Taylor in Alabama and moved with her father to what is now Union Parish in February 1837. She was buried in the Taylor/Liberty Hill Cemetery. The other Woods lived in Union, Lincoln, and Claiborne Parishes.3

No sons mentioned. He also mentions his 25 slaves by name.
Witnesses: ZENO? C. ROSS & JOS. B. PAYNE.

This will was extremely hard to read and it's 4 pages long. I believe this Daniel Payne is supposed to be the son of William Isaac Payne.10
