clared the victor and was rewarded by the hand of the fair Bethia.

The will of Capt. Job Gorham of Barnstable, Mass., gentle-
man, is dated September 12th, 1753, and was proved November
2nd, 1762. In it he names his wife Bethia Gorham and daughters
Temperance Fuller and Desire Gorham, to whom he gives legacies.
All the remainder of his estate he gives to his son Thomas, whom
he appoints his executor. Capt. Job Gorham inherited the dwell-
ing house built by his grandfather (Capt. John Gorham) in Barn-
stable and the lands in its immediate vicinity; and the same was
held by his descendants as late as 1888. In 1745 he took down
the old mansion and built the one which was standing in 1888
on the same spot. Part of the material of the old house was used
in the construction of the new one. Captain Job Gorham's children
by his first wife,, Desire Dimmock, were as follows:

1. Temperance, born Barnstable, Mass., July 23rd, 1721 ;

Rev. Thomas=> Paine at an early age was placed under Rev.
Jonathan Russell of Barnstable for preparation for Harvard Col-
lege. In 171 3 he entered Harvard, and while there pursued the
study of mathematics and astronomy far beyond the ordinary course
of these studies there at that time. His great interest m these
studies led him in 1718 and 17 19 to pubHsh almanacs m his own
name. To the study of Latin, Greek, Hebrew and French he gave
great attention, and graduated at Harvard in 1717. Having shown
an early predilection for the ministry, in August, 1717, he began
the study of theology under Rev. Theophilus Barnard of Andover,
Mass. ; and upon completion of his studies he accepted a call and
was ordained minister at Weymouth, Mass., on August 19th, 1719;
he remained there until 1730, when ill health compelled him to ask
for his dismission. He then went to Boston to reside and soon be-
came engaged in commercial pursuits. He carried on a trade with
the Southern Colonies, West Indies, and the new port of Hah fax,
N. S., and with England and other foreign ports, and soon acquired
considerable wealth. He was also engaged in the manufacture of
cannon and the casting of shot ; he had foundries in Abmgton and
Bridgewater. In the summer of 1749, his business affairs became
involved in consequence of the capture of some of his vessels, and
on account of the depreciated value of the existing currency, and
creneral business conditions ; and his property was swept away. His
health gave way, and he made a voyage to the West Indies ; and on
his return made lialifax his place of residence. There he turned
his attention to the study of law with the intention of practising.
His health becoming greatly impaired, he was compelled to abandon
his studies and he returned toBraintree, Mass., to a village nearby
called Germantown, where his daughter Abigail Greenleaf lived;
and at her home passed to his rest and was buried at Weymouth
Mass. He was undoubtedly a man of great talents, learning and

piety.

Nathaniel Freeman, first husband of Mary'' Paine, died before
the birth of his last child, Nathaniel® Freeman. His will mentions
his wife Mary, who was Executrix, and will was admitted to ad-
ministration May 22nd, 1728, "the said widow and her father,
James Paine of Barnstable, being granted letters of administration.
Edmund Hawes, second husband of Mary^ Paine, was ruined finan-
cially by the depreciation of Continental paper currency. In Jan-
uary, 1777, the paper currency then in circulation was at 5 per cent,
discount, in July it was at 25 per cent, discount, and before the end
of the year three dollars in paper would not command one dollar
in silver. The depreciation was so rapid that finally a paper dol-
lar was only worth two or three cents. Edmund Hawes had sold
his home to a Mr. Doane (the property since known as the Dr.
Savage estate) and had been paid therefor in Continental paper
currency, which almost immediately thereafter became worthless.
Mr Hawes, being thus reduced to poverty, went into the woods
and hung himself. It is a singular fact that his only son also com-
mitted suicide.
