Note:
Correcting History: The long-believed story of Nathan's death in all of the extended family is that he died when he was accidently shot off of his horse. My mother-in-law told me her Nahtan (her grandfather) rode into Columbus. His best friend was standing outside a store, and when Nathan rode up, the friend said to a by-stander, "Watch me shoot Shorty off of his horse." Believing his gun was unloaded, the friend pulled his gun and fired, killing Nathan. It turns out that the true story is that on 16 June 1865, after an argument, Nathan shot a man named Ira Albert Harris in the shoulder. Mr. Harris' son, Lane, then shot Nathan, who died a short time afterwards.
