Nathaniel 's family were seaman and shipwrights until after the war of 1812 . Nathaniel , however, was apprenticed to a shoemaker at an early age, to learn the shoemaking trade. He became expert in making fine shoes. After his marriage, the couple soon owned not only his shoe shop but also several houses which they rented out.

They were introduced to the gospel and baptized in 1841 . In 1843 they sold out and moved to Nauvoo . They lived there until the exodus, then started west with the saints. Nathaniel 's health was not good and, after reaching camp a few miles from Bonaparte, Iowa , they decided to camp until he felt better. He died there and was buried there. He was only 41 years old.
