About Mary Paine

She was born in Plymouth, MA .

From THOMAS PAINE, FOUNDER OF THE EASTHAM FAMILY, AND HIS POSTERITY. By Josiah Paine, Of Harwich, Mass.

Mary Snow, the wife of Thomas Paine, was a daughter of Nicholas and Constance Snow. Nicholas came over in the Ann, in 1623, and married Constance, daughter of Stephen Hopkins, of the Mayflower band of Filgrims. Nicholas Snow was a prominent man in the Colony. With six others, it appears, he began the settlement of Eastham in 1645. His death occurred in 1676. Mary Paine was a woman of whom much has been said in her praise. She was a "faithful wife," "a careful mother," a good and "quiet neighbor," a "diligent reader of God's Holy Word," and a lover of and an attendant at ', God's house of worship." Dea. John Paine, her son, thus speaks of her last hours and death in his diary: "On the 28th day of April, 1704, my honored mother, Mary Paine, departed this life, being suddenly taken and struck with death, she having been in reasonable health all day, was taken ill about sunset so she never after spoke reasonable; but decaying gradually gave up the Ghost about the dawning of the day." Neither the date of her birth or marriage appears. No stone, with inscription, marks her resting place.
