William was named for Thomas Paine, of English fame, who was his uncle. William left Ireland in 1848 along with his cousin, Robert Knightly, sailing on the "Arcadia" to a new home in America. After a voyage of 5 weeks and 3 days, the ship landed at Boston. From there, William went to Portland, Maine, and took a job with the Grand Trunk Railroad. That job lasted only until October 1848. Over the next 3 years (1849-1851), he worked at various summer jobs with the Grand Truck Railroad, and on farms in Paris, Maine, while attending school during the winter months ("acquiring a good education"). He saved enough money in two years of work to send home for two sisters and a brother to come to America. After another summer of farm work, he took a job running a circular saw in T.G. Barnard's furniture factory in the town of Norway [Note: Several Maine towns bear the names of foreign cities and countries, for example, China, Peru, Denmark, Sweden, Mexico and Moscow, to name only a few).
In 1856, William went to Bath, Maine, where he worked for a year in a cabinet-shop. After that, he went back to farming on a permanent basis. He owned a small farm in the town of Oxford, which he operated for 7 years. He exchanged that property for a farm in Norway, where he lived about 3 years. The next 3 years were spent farming in East Oxford. Finally, in 1871, he settled on a farm in the town of Waterford. William was considered to be one of the leading men of agriculture in Oxford County, Maine, "owning some two hundred acres of land, a well-improved farm, some good stock, and a choice dairy." He is buried in Norway Pine Grove Cemetery (BIOGRAPHICAL REVIEW, Leading Citizens of Franklin and Oxford Counties, Maine [op.cit.], 361-362; and William's Obituary [op.cit.] in "The Norway Advertiser").
