    Bennet Paine the wife of John Paine dyed on the thirtieth day of May anno Domini : 1716.

    Deacon John Paine's Journal says, "on the thirteenth [13] day of may anno dommini 1716 My dearly beloved wife Bennet departed this life being five and fourty years two months and twenty days old". Bennet (Freeman) Paine's gravestone gives the date 30 May 1716. The diary of her husband's nephew, Moses Paine, records the death 30 May 1716, "very suddenly". [It appears that Deacon Paine wrote down the wrong date, but depending on the death date he actually used in his calculation of her age, this implies a birth of either 21 Feb 1671 or 10 Mar 1671.]

  4.   Deacon John Pain was the son of Thomas Paine, of Eastham, by his wife Mary Snow, the daughter Nicholas and Constance (Hopkins) Snow. He married, first, Bennet Freeman, the daughter of Major John and Mercy (Prence) Freeman; and, for this second wife, Alice Mayo, the daughter of Nathaniel and Elizabeth (Wixam) Mayo and granddaughter of Nathaniel and Hannah (Prence) Mayo. As Mercy Prence and Hannah Prence were daughters of Gov. Thomas Prence by his first wife, Patience2 Brewster (Elder William1), all of Deacon John Paine's descendants can claim Mayflower descent from both Elder Brewster and Stephen Hopkins.
