|Additional Information||John Howard Payne, actor, editor, and diplomat, was born in New York City in 1791. While in Georgia in 1835 in search of material for his magazine, Payne became acquainted with John Ross of the Cherokee nation whose affairs with the United States government were in turmoil. Ross gave Payne original material which he used in a series of published articles in an effort to obtain justice for the Cherokee Indians and served as source material for an unpublished history of the Cherokee nation. Payne later served as U.S. consul in Tunis where he died in 1852.|
