aged 66 years

[[son of Thomas], born in New London, Conn., April 15, 1721*. He married, Dec. 22, 1745, Anne, daughter of Ebenezer DENNIS, of New London. She was born Dec. 3, 1724. He built a large farm house, on a part of the Douglas farm, in 1744, but being too fond of active life and enterprise to restrict himself to farming, he sold his house and land to his brother Robert, Dec. 20, 1751, and removed to town. There he lived a little north of the stone house owned by the Browns, on Bank street. He kept a house of entertainment at the head of Golden Street; and the street is said to have received its name from a large golden ball which hung over his door. Capt. Nathan died, March 4, 1786. Anne, his widow, died April 3, 1790.
