Payne


SAMUEL D. PAYNE was born in Camden NJ on July 5, 1890 to Mr. and Mrs. David Payne. David Payne had emigrated from Ireland, and was living in Camden by 1887. By then he had already established a coal business at 521 North Front Street, the northwest corner of Front and Elm Streets, in North Camden. Samuel Payne grew up in North Camden, and in the years prior to World War I belonged to the Aquinas Club, a social club that many young men from North Camden belonged to prior to World War I.

Samuel Payne married his wife Bertha around 1923. A printer by trade, at the time of the 1930 Census Samuel and Bertha Payne lived at 200 Elm Street, diagonally across the street from the Payne family's earlier home. David Payne, then 80 and a widower, lived with them, as well as Samuel Payne's older sister Margaret. Samuel Payne operated a printing business at 301 Main Street at this time, and through at least 1936.

Active in local politics, Samuel D. Payne served on the Camden County Board of Freeholders from Camden's 1st Ward in 1930 and 1931.

By 1947 Samuel Payne had moved his printing business to 200 Elm Street, and his residence to 907 North 7th Street. His sister Margaret, however, remained at the Elm Street address. The Payne Print Shop would continue in business on Elm Street through at least 1959. Samuel D. Payne passed away in July of 1966. The Payne family continued to reside at 907 North 7th Street through October of 1970.
