A review of the 1850 Federal Census shows Jacob Paine, born in VT, to be a farmer. His household consisted of:
|Name||Age||Sex||Occupation||Value of Real Estate||Place of Birth|
Jacob Paine is also found in the 1840 Federal Census for Hardwick but is not found in the 1830 Federal Census.
His widow, India, is found in the 1860 Federal Census for Hardwick with a South Hardwick post office. This would indicate that the family moved after Jacob's death.
