His wife was Miss Lydia B. Thompson, daughter of Jacob B. and Mary (Clayton) Thompson, born in Christiana, April 28, 1844.

His last location as a merchant was in Christiana, where he was in business at the time of his death in 1855. His widow moved to Bart in 1857, where she lived until her death in 1898.

406 There is a handwritten note, I beleive by my great-grandmother, Grace (Tyson) Nolan, that describes some of Nathan's family tree. He was in attendance at the ICE reunion in 1937 that my great-grandmother and her family attended in Marion County, West Virginia. She was related through her mother's father's side (the Moore family). Her grandfather, James Moore, married a Martha Kennett very early 1800s. The note refers to a William Kennett being Nathan's grandfather. Is there a relationship between Martha Kennett and William Kennett?
In searching for records, I found that Nathan's wife's mother was also a Kennett.

Cecil Whig, Saturday, January 15, 1881

Death of Mrs. Elizabeth McKinsey.
Death has been busy during the past fortnight among both young and old in our
vicinity. On Friday night last, about nine o’clock, one of our oldest citizens,
Mrs. Elizabeth McKinsey, mother of Mr. James McKinsey, and an aunt of W. J.
Jones, Esq., of this town, died suddenly and without previous warning. About
ten day ago Mrs. McKinsey, while standing looking out the window of the
residence of her son on Main street, was taken with vertigo and fell heavily
upon the floor. She was confined to her room several days from the effects of
the fall, and suffered considerably, but it was thought nothing serious was
likely to result. On Friday evening, however, while Mr. McKinsey and his family
were sitting around the table reading, a groan was heard, quickly followed by
another, coming apparently from the second floor of the house, and Mr. McKinsey
hurried at once to his mother’s room. He found her upon her bed in a semi-
unconscious state, apparently suffering considerable pain. Dr. Mitchell was at
once sent for, but ere he could reach her she had passed away. It is now
thought that her death was the result of her fall, she having at that time
received internal injuries not discoverable at the time.
Mrs. McKinsey was an old resident of Elkton, remembering the time of the war
of 1812 and ’15, and for many years a member of the Methodist Church, her house
on Bow street being for years a favorite meeting place for the church class to
which she belonged. She was in her 83rd year. Her maiden name was Purnell, a
sister of the late Greenbury Purnell, also of Mrs. Ann Hewitt, who now supposed
to be the oldest person in Elkton, being in her 86th year. Her parents removed
here during the war from the lower peninsula, and both she and Mrs. Hewitt had
vived recollections of the burning of Frenchtown and the landing of the British
at the head of the river. Mrs. McKinsey was the widow of the late Benjamin
McKinsey, by whom she had a number of children, the majority of whom she
outlived. Her remains were interred by the side of those of her husband, in the
old M. E. cemetery, on Monday afternoon. Mrs. McKinsey was a pensioner of the
Government, she receiving a pension for services rendered by her husband during
the war of 1812.
