Johnathan Nason who is said to have d abt 1746 unknown location.  His known spouse is Adah Morrell.  They have a son John Nason b 24 Oct 1704.

This information came from an online cousin.  I have searched Family search, usgenweb, Dar records, One record says he is the son of Johnathan Nason b 1648 Kittery, York, Me, USA.  In the Nason Book it has an identical record.  The IGI at the library did not yeild.  I scanned Find A Grave fine resource but not complete as yet.  Over 30 years researching with a net work of like minded, serious researchers but we have no Maine resourse.  I have not been able to find the proofs.

It appears that his father Jonathan didn’t leave a will, at least that was recorded in the York Probate Records, however maybe you would be able to find some other probate document establishing the relationship of Jonathan b. 1650 and Jonathan b. 1680.  This site of Deeds and Court records may be worth a look?
