Henry B. Payne [1810-1896] was an American politician who moved from New York to Ohio in 1833 and quickly established himself as a local leader in Democratic politics. He was elected to one term in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1874 and ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic presidential election in 1880. His election to the U.S. Senate in 1884 was nearly derailed by charges of bribery, but after a Senate investigation he was allowed to keep his seat, serving from 1885-1891. He did not run for reelection and died in 1896.
