Nathan Mason
Birth: Mar. 10, 1705
Rehoboth
Bristol County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: May 17, 1758
Swansea
Bristol County
Massachusetts, USA

Nathan Mason was a blacksmith by trade and lived in Swansea during the greater part of his life. After 1750 however, he appears to have resided elsewhere and the birthplace of his younger children is unknown. He died May 1758. He is buried in the old family burial lot on the north side of Swansea, near Hortonville, and the inscription upon his gravestone say that he died in his fiftieth year. This is apparently an error, due to imperfect family records and the lapse of time between his death and the erection of his gravestone, for this was probably not erected until after the death of his widow. She is buried beside her first husband, Nathan Mason.
