Dear Mr. Frobe,
Thank you for contacting History Hub!
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is the depository of the permanently valuable non-current records of the Federal Government.The Federal Government does not ordinarily create or maintain birth, death, marriage or divorce records. Such records are made and kept by State and local governments rather than the National Archives.
For information on your ancestors, we suggest you contact or visit the Dearborn County Historical Society as they provide genealogical research assistance and are the sole repository of historical materials related to the history of Dearborn County, IN. They may be able to help you find information on the deaths of Adam Payne and Rachel Dawson, or at least give you more information about the family while they lived in that area.
Best of luck in your research!
