Miscellaneous: Phillip lived in Grafton, West Virginia. All blue above was confirmed by William C. Wroe in The Wroe and Chancellor Families, which William C. Wroe compiled and published in 1992. p. 273-278.

Phillip was only 6 years and about 4 months old when his mother died on 23 March 1833 and 10 years and about 2 months old when his father died on 11 January 1837. Records show that many of Phillip's brothers and sisters were raised by relatives when their father died. No records have been found concerning who raised Phillip.

In the 1860 Census for Independence District, Preston County, Virginia, conducted on 29 September, 1860, Philip W. Payne's home is listed as the 1647 "Dwelling-house numbered in the order of visitation." His home was the 1643rd "Families numbered in the order of visitation." "The name of every person whose usual place of abode on the first day of June, 1860, was in this family" included five people. Philip, Maria, William, Mary, and Anna. Philip W. Payne is listed as 33 and his profession was cabinetmaker. Maria is listed as being 28 (This is difficult to read. It should be 29 if she was born 20 February 1831). William H. is 9 , Mary O. is 5, and Anna E. is 3 (Anna would actually have been 2 if she was born 20 June 1858). [ Note: Philip and Maria had 5 children: William Henry, James Wroe, Mary Olive, Anna Eliza (#16), and Lucy Ellen. Lucy was not listed in the 1860 census because she was born in 1861; James Wroe isn't listed because he died at the age of 3 in 1854.]
