NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - Nothing has been easy for Thomas Paine, the Revolutionary War patriot, agitator and pamphleteer, since New York state awarded him 277 acres here in 1784. Residents in what was a Tory stronghold disdained him. He was prevented from voting and branded an atheist. Finally, he retreated to Manhattan, where he died in 1809, childless, scorned and impoverished. Ten years later, his body was exhumed from his farm and shipped to England by a zealous supporter who hoped that Paine would be accorded more respect.
