According to a Bio on Nathaniel's son-in-law, Isaac McKinzie, Nathaniel died in Walla Walla, WA. in 1880. All the clues I have seen point toward the fact that Nathaniel was buried in Mt. View Cemetery in Walla Walla, Walla Walla Co., WA. The cemetery office can't find him in their records though. That long ago records were not kept very well. My best educated guess is that he is buried near his daughter and son-in-law, Isaac and Mary Bell McKinzie, in Mt View Cemetery. There are some empty spaces/unmarked graves in Isaac's family plot in that cemetery. According to old Walla Walla City Directories, Nathaniel was living right by Isaac and Mary in Walla Walla in the 1880 City Directory. They were no doubt looking out for him. When Nathaniel died I find it hard to imagine them having him buried anywhere else but in their plot in Mt View. It has not been proven beyond a shadow of doubt though.
Nathaniel had one more child that is not attached to his page, a John Bell who was born in 1833 in IL. Nobody seems to have any idea what happened to that son. He may have died young?
