This book is inaccurate as to the Thomas Paine (formally Thomas Payne) that married Mary Snow. Thomas Payne, son of Thomas Payne and Marie Carter first married Elizabeth Litchfield (1633) in London, England. This Thomas with wife Elizabeth and son Thomas (b. 1635 "at Sagus") came to America in 1639. Elizabeth died 1645 after giving birth to second son Samuel. When he married Mary Snow in 1650, his name was spelled Paine. (In those days, the spelling of one's name depended on how the name sounded to the person doing the recording.)
