Nathaniel attended public school in Newberry, South Carolina, where he met and married the late Lillie Fair. From that union, one son, Luke, was born. He later moved to Washington, D. C. He later met and married Ruth Mosley.
Nathaniel worked as a butcher for years and as a groundskeeper in the Federal Government until he retired.

He also enjoyed watching baseball and his Washington Redskins. He enjoyed traveling to South Carolina to visit with family and friends each summer. He loved his cars and trucks and took pride in keeping them clean.
