[TenTec] Paragon II Memory Back-up

Then what?  The battery dies, the memory locations and data contained 
there-in is lost and the unit returns to factory ROM settings as though a 
master reset has been done.  My Paragon II is about 10 years old and has the 
original battery.

If you are concerned, replace the battery. Of  course, when you remove the 
battery the current data will be lost.  So either way, you're gonna loose 
data.  This is no different than any other device using a microprocessor 
with battery RAM data back-up technique.
