Nathaniel Eastman was the husband of Elizabeth Hudson Eastman. They married on 28 Feb 1671 in Salisbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. They may have been the parents of Sarah Eastman who married Nathaniel Ambrose. His exact burial location is unknown. He may be buried at the historic old Salisbury Colonial Burying Ground cemetery in Essex County.
Salem Witch Trials connection: A Nathaniel and Elizabeth Eastman signed a petition on 22 July 1692 concerning a Mary Bradbury, accused of witchcraft. The petition appears to be one of neighbors in support of Mary Bradbury's innocence, and reads as follows:
Essex County Archives, Salem -- Witchcraft Vol. 2 Page 40. July 22'd 1692
