Transcription of Dec 1, 1977 note from Tom Kane, Assistant Town Clerk of Truro, MA
From a reply from the Town Clerk of Truro to Natalie Haines December 1, 1977:

"Our copy of Bowman (Mayflower Descendants) Edition of Truro, Mass., Vital Records has the following:
p.172 John Lancle of Provincetown and Ruth Pain of Truro. Published October 16, 1800.
p. 204 1800 - November 13 - John Lancelle to Ruth Paine. Married by Rev. Jude Damon, minister of said town, recorded by Anthony Snow, Town Clerk

Sorry we don't have your Charles V., but this may furnish a clue --

[best wishes, etc, signed Tom Kane]"

Narrative

Some unsigned comments by a descendant regarding Ruth C. Paine:
1. Notes that her son Capt James P. Lansil's biography says she was born in 1778, but points out that Truro Vital Records says 9/17/1783.
2. Points out that the biography says she died in 1837, age 53, which matches the Truro Vital Records birth date, but not the birth date given in the biography itself.

A reformatted chart of childrens' names for five generations of the Paines and Lansils, done by a descendant of Ruth C. Paine:

In Truro: Thomas & Thankful's children between 1707-1730: Thomas, James, Mary and Ephraim.

In Truro: Thomas & Mary's children between 1732-1750: Thomas, Mary, James, Ephraim.

In Truro: James & Elizabeth's children between 1766-1783: Betty(Eliz), James, Thomas, Mary, Asa Cobb.

In Bangor: Ruth & Charles' children between 1800-1821:Thomas, Mary, Betsy (Eliz), Charles V., Asa Paine, James, Ephraim.

In Bangor: Thomas & Emily's children between 1824-1835: Charles III, Thomas, Asa Paine, Betsy

Her comments: Doesn't this indicate that Charles' Ruth (Bangor, ME) was Jas & Eliz' Ruth Paine of Truro, MA.?
