Birthdate is calculated from death date and age as stated would be 1766 or 1767, but family records from his grandson indicate 1767. Nathan was a bootmaker, and moved from Oxford to what was known as Canaan at that time. Canaan was a center for shoemakers. He was working with his men in the field and drowned in the Housatonic River. His body was not found until a week later. He was buried on the family homestead in Oxford occupied by his eldest son, Abijah.
