Rev. Nathaniel Purinton was the son of Rev. Humphrey Purinton and Thankful Snow; he was converted in December 1808, he entered at once upon a faithful Christian life. He commenced a membership for life with the Second Lisbon church at its organization in May, 1818, and the next month he was ordained as its pastor. This relation he sustained till death with but slight interruptions.
He was married to Pricilla Wilson, 20 Sept. 1810, Lincoln, ME (ME mar. records).
He was frequently absent to serve destitute churches, and sometimes had two or three such under his pastoral care. He possessed a discerning mind, clearness of utterance, a warm, true heart, and was progressive in regard to the benevolent enterprises of his day. He was constant in his attendance of the Quarterly Meetings, and was frequently engaged on ordination councils and at church organizations. At times he took up the mason's trowel (Rev. N. Purinton was a mason by trade) to enable him to preach the gospel to the poor. He died respected and beloved. One son (Rev. A.W. Purinton), one brother and two nephews entered the Free Baptist ministry."
