    Fornication 
    • Barnet Payne and was indicted in Franklin County, VA, for the act of fornication with Jinny Martin. Common Law Order Book 6, dated 1810-1823, gives an account of the charges on pages 210, 216, 239, and 255. Three members of the Grand Jury, Joel Early, Edward Carroway, and Patrick Hill, sent William McCormack to investigate, and upon his report summoned Barnett Payne and Jinnie Martin to appear in Court.

      On 21 July 1819, Barnett posted bond of $150.00 for the intended marriage to Jane Martin. Page 267 of Book 6 states that "the attorney for the Commonwealth by Leave of the Court saith that he will not further prosecute . . . it was considered by the Court that the rule aforesaid be discharged." There is no record that the marriage was ever performed, and he and Jane lived independently at least part of the time. Jane appears in later records as both Jane Martin and Jenny Payne
