Nathaniel came West with the Weston's. He arrived 2 Sep 1868, in the Simpson A. Molen Company. President Young sent Nathaniel and George Weston, a friend, to work on the railroad, which they did until its completion in May 1869. After the completion of the railroad, they were both sent to help settle the Bear Lake area in Laketown, Rich, Utah.

Before leaving, he married Louisa. They settled on 40 acres, which he worked. The two sisters had talked before leaving England about maybe sharing the same husband and their plans worked out.

In 1874 Nathaniel bought a saw mill, and in 1876 he bought a flour mill. The mills proved too expensive for him to run. He was advised by his bishop to lease the flour mill and go on a mission, which he did, to England. Upon his return, he bought more land to cultivate.

He also married his third wife. He bought a home in Randolph and moved her there with her five children. He provided well for his families and saw that they were educated.
