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.
