We don’t know where or when he died.  Amy Brown Paine was born on 09 Jan 1821 in Rhode Island and died unmarried on 01 Oct 1857 in Burrillville and lies in the Albee-Paine Cemetery.  Amasa Paine was born on 18 Jun 1823 in Rhode Island, maintained the family farm,  and died, apparently unmarried, 09 May 1880 (or May 09, 1883) in Burrillville. He lies with his older brothers and sisters and parents on the family farm.

Sarah Paine was born on 08 Aug 1825 in Smithfield.  She taught school in Massachusetts, and married Charles Fenner Albee on 22 Apr 1847 in Thompson, Windham Co., Connecticut.  Charles was a son of  William and Charlotte Wood Albee who also are buried in the Albee-Paine Cemetery.  The family moved in about 1855 to Portland Prairie, Minnesota, Sarah living until 21 Aug 1909; she is buried next to the Portland Prairie Methodist Episcopal Church.

Duty Sayles Paine was born on 01 Feb 1830 in Burrillville (actually Pascoag, a town in Burrillville township), and moved west with his sister Sarah Paine Albee, sister Mary Maria Paine Shumway, and brother James Munroe Paine.  He married twice, to sisters Sarah Maria Cook and Mary Gerry Cook. He died on 02 Apr 1925 in Forsyth, Rosebud Co., Montana. An interesting sideline – Sarah and Mary were of course born in Nova Scotia, but the Cooks were a Loyalist family, originally from Massachusetts but moving to Canada after the Revolution.

Mary Maria Paine was born on 28 Jul 1832 in Pascoag, and married Jeremiah Shumway ,son of Noah Shumway and Pamela Aldrich, on 24 July 1852 in Worcester, Massachusetts.
