Nathaniel Munsey Berry was the son of Hugh Lawson Berry and Martha Anna Parker Berry. He was born in Knoxville, Tennessee and lived in Knox County all his life. Nathaniel M. Berry was a member of Mt. Olive Baptist Church and a member of John H. Franklin Post G.A.R. He never married.

The Mount Olive Cemetery grounds are located on his old farmland made available by him. As a result of his gift, the cemetery committee designated his gravesite to be in the center of the cemetery drive as a place of honor. The original name of the cemetery was N.M Cemetery, named after Nathaniel and later changed to Mount Olive Cemetery.
