Notes for Nathan (Spouse 1)
I have details of his estate. It is possible that he served in the Revolutionary War. There were clearly two Nathan Parks from Westfield, Massachusetts, serving in the war. The other lived on and applied for a pension, eventually dying in Ohio. This Nathan died too soon and his widow remarried, so did not qualify for a pension.
