I hope this helps! Here is what I found from 9 family trees on Ancestry.ca. The only major sources to any of this, I listed as a census record and a book called "The Handy Book of American Authors" however every tree was extremely similar in information aside from the children (some had them, some didn't). All dates matched and all had the same picture as you as well as knowledge of his " The Common Sense" article ...

More information is needed.  Tom Paine's birth, death, marriage, residence locations are helpful.  Otherwise, we don't know if our anscestor is the one you seek.  If you can give us the decade your researching that can narrow things down.  You are more likely to get responces.
