Catharine Paine lived in Seneca Falls NY, not far from Elizabeth Cady Staton. Catharine attended the historic 1848 Seneca Falls meeting that sparked the women's suffrage movement. Attendees of the meeting signed the "Declaration of Sentiment" a document written by Stanton. Catharine is believed to be the youngest signer. Despite her young age at this meeting, she died before women gained the right to vote.
In 1852 Catharine taught Sunday School where it is believed she came to know her husband to be, David Edwards Blaine. They married in 1853 and set off for Seattle, arriving in 1853. They arrived in Seattle in 1853.
Family tradition says that their son, John Jefferson Blaine, was the first white boy born in Seattle. The family remained in Seattle, until they moved to Oregon in 1856.
From Oregon they moved back to their home in Seneca Falls, NY. David was a pastor for a number of churches in New York and in Pennsylvania. Later they returned to Seattle, where they remained for the rest of their lives.
The letters Catharine wrote home from her early days in Seattle survived and were published by her son, Edward Linn Blaine. These letters provided historians one of the earliest and detailed accounts of early Seattle Pioneer experience.
