CHAPEL HILL, NC -
An NC woman revealed in the last line of her obituary last week that she was the great-aunt of the President of the United States.
Margaret Payne, age 87, of Chapel Hill died last Wednesday at a retirement community. She was the younger sister of Barack Obamas grandmother, who actually did most of the parenting for the future president when he was growing up in Hawaii.
Payne was a professor of nutrition who taught at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, and subsequently at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 1980 to 1990. She authored numerous research articles and two books.
Her obituary said:
"Margaret A. Payne is survived by her brother Charles T. Payne and wife Melanie; her brother Jon V. Payne and wife Susan and friend Margery Duffey. She is also survived by nieces and nephews Richard Payne, Jon Allen Payne, Stacey Gray, Barack Obama and Maya Soetoro."
Stanley Dunham and his wife Madelyn were parents of Obamas mother, Ann Dunham. Margaret Payne was the younger sister of Madelyn.
Not ypur Typical White Woman.
I read that his dad was James Earl Jones or Jimi Hendrix and his mom was for sure Barbara Stanwyk or Cher. Last week anyway.
Hard to keep up with the earthshattering theories these days.
“An NC woman revealed in the last line of her obituary last week that she was the great-aunt of the President of the United States.”
Well, that’s one secret I think I would prefer to take to the grave with me. I would also try to hide that fact from Paul at the pearly gates.
Will Baraq be attending the service?
I don’t think I would boast if that familiar connection...
Is St. Peter off on vacation?
Yeah, no kidding.
” survived by her ... friend Margery Duffey”
How close of a friend?
and yet we've never heard of her
I’ll bet she knew a thing or two.
Oh well. Gone now.
If I was going to make an admission like that I would wait until I was dead too.
Would not be a surprise that he has not talked to her in the last couple of decades.
And she took his place of birth to her grave.
My first thought, how did we miss all this.
Isn’t that the truth? That is something I would not want anyone to know.
The mythical geneology re - emerges.
She was the sister of Madelyn Dunham and Charles T Payne, Charles was Deputy Director of the University of Chicago Library from the early fifties until his retirement in the 90’s, he was at the U of Chicago when zero lectured in Law there...and Melanie, the wife of Charles was on a committee with the wife of David Axelrod in the seventies, they all lived in Hyde Park.
You might recall, Stanley Ann was accepted to attend the University of Chicago - but ‘Dreams’ tells that her father wouldn’t let her go...
She did however, have a job as an au pair in Chicago ‘when she was only 16 then’ which would have been in 1958, and ‘Dreams’ also tells us she saw the film ‘Black Orpheus’ in Chicago, which opened in December 1959; she apparently spent quite some time with her Uncle Charles.
Why would the article headline refer to the sister of Madeline and Charles as NC WOMAN? It’s hardly a mystery, Madeline had siblings.
She could have apologize for NC not backing Obama in 2012.

Is she the one who has daughters who converted to islam and let slip that little Barry’s mama had died? FR had a pic of her and the burka’ed daughters.
you can donate the ten bucks you owe me to the next FR freepathon.
Have you ever heard of "medicaid planning"? Google it and then get back to me.
That person was Virginia Goeldner, the half sister of Stanley Armour Dunham.
The Goeldner couple have a daughter living in Saudi Arabia who has five children with her muslim arab husband.

“Goeldner said her sister-in-law actually raised Barrack Obama, or Barry as they called him, when he was young, after his mother died in 1970. “
Her dna and soebarkah’s dna would contain a matching percentage... if his mama is who he says she is... Paging the mortician, paging the mortician. Please pick up the courtesy line.
She retired in 1990, I can’t think of anyone who has LESS in common with Zeituni Onyango, but have it your way if it makes you happy to compare Margaret Payne with an illegal ‘immigrant’ from Kenya...
First of all I'm quite familiar with Auntie Zetuni.After all she *did* live off of the taxpayers of the Gay State from the moment she illegally entered this country.And I'm not suggesting that this woman was an illegal.But understanding the utter filthiness of *both* the white and black sides of Osama Obama's family tree I'd still wager that this woman was a welfare parasite (as opposed to an ordinary SS recipient) during the last years of her life.
Like said..."Medicaid planning".
Why would the article headline refer to the sister of Madeline and Charles as NC WOMAN?>>>>>>
Apparently the obituary in question was published in NC, where she had passed away.My guess is that she and her husband had retired there, NC is one of thiose states that has a large retirement community because of its moderate climate.
There's no suggestion of a husband in this obit, whether current, deceased, or ex-.
Reggie love was a great basketball pleaser and personal assistant. He is survived by his brother T Bone,
his sister Shananay, and many cousins and friends Barack Obama was his Bitch.
That headline and brief article reads as if it's doubtful she was a relative.
The obituary I posted shows she had a significant lady-friend who is still living.
Margaret A. Payne is survived by her brother Charles T. Payne and wife Melanie; her brother Jon V. Payne and wife Susan and friend Margery Duffey.
Thanks for the clarification. Too many players to keep up with.
It’s odd that none of Obama’s relatives have had much to say on the record about their kin. Considering he’s the president of what once was the leader of the free world.
Margery Duffey is a very valuable source. I wonder what she might be able to tell the world about the Dunham adoptee(s).
Forgive me for not picking that up, you are so expertly precise on the geneology , its easily over my head at times, LOL.
Maybe Margery has an interest in true history?
