Note - Inconsistencies found in obituary are as follows:
* Nathaniel was born in Illinois, according to census records. His wife lived in Des Moines County, Iowa as a child.
* Nathaniel came to Schuyler County, Missouri with his parents as a child, and marriage record to Mary Jane Cellan is recorded in that county.
* Nathaniel passed away at the home of Mrs. G. E. Hall (his daughter).
* Date of death recorded as Sept. 30, 1923 at Chelsea Cemetery. (Unsure which is correct).
