Father (?) Paine1

     (?) was born. (?) married Mother (?) (?) in New Haven, New Haven County, Connecticut. (?) departed this life in the Town of Southold, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York.

Important Notes: Many researchers have noted Mary & Lydia Paine's parents as John Paine & Jemima Alsop. John Paine [ca. 1653-1707] was the son of Peter Pain & Mary Folger. He married 2nd 24 March 1692 in New Havn, Connecticut Jemima Alsop. Jemima Alsop [2/10/1670-12/25/1713] was the daughter of Joseph Alsop & Elizabeth Preston. The will of this John Paine dated 3 February 1707 does not name a daughter, Lydia & his daughter, Mary, is the wife of Abraham Corey. His sons, John & Alsop, were too young for one of them to be the father of the sisters Lydia Paine Salmon & Mary Pain Vail.
These Paines are from the Southold branch of the family. After studying as many from this family as we could find, it is our opinion that these two sisters are most likely the great grand daughter of Peter Paine & Mary Folger. Besides having a son John, they had a son Peter; this Peter was married to an Abigail and on the 1686 tax list, there was two males and three females. This showing that Peter most likely had a son. Peter dies in 1696 and his widow Abigail appears on the 1698 census with two daughters, Abigail and Mary. Unfortunately, we can find nothing of the possible son living with them in 1686. Presently, we feel he is the most likely choice for the father of Mary & Lydia Paine. More research needs to be done.2
