Frederick Paine (1785 – 1857)

” Frederick, son of Lemuel and Rachel (Carpenter) Paine, was born in Foxboro, Massachusetts, November 21, 1785, died March 12, 1857. He married, September 21, 1809, Abiel Ware, born in Wrentham, December 6, 1787, died January 12, 1852. Frederick removed to Winslow, Maine, with his brother Lemuel, and there resided the remainder of his life. He was a cooper by trade, but he devoted a large portion of his time to agricultural pursuits. In 1815 he was appointed postmaster of Winslow, a place he held for thirty years. He was for many years treasurer of the town. In 1808 his wife and another couple alone joined to form a church of the Congregational order, and were both ever afterward active members. Their house was always open for the entertainment of all ministers. They were constant churchgoers, their pew being long never vacant and seldom less than full. Their religion was free from bigotry, liberal in practice, and charitable toward all. They had eight children: Charles Frederick, Albert Ware, Benjamin Crowningshield, Caroline Matilda, Harriet Newall, Timothy Otis, the learned restorer of Solomon’s Temple; Charlotte Elizabeth; Sarah Jane.”
