Biography

Nathaniel Pitcher Jr was born on 30 Nov 1685 in Milton, Norfolk Co., Massachusetts, the son of Nathaniel Pitcher and Mary (Clapp) Pitcher. [1] [2]
Nathaniel received his degree from Harvard College in 1703 and his theological education under the care of Mr. Danforth of Dorchester, Massachusetts. Nathaniel first preached in Scituate in Mar 1705 during the illness of Jeremiah Cushing. He was invited to preach again in May of 1706 and again in the summer of 1707, whereupon he was invited to become the pastor. He was ordained on 4 Sep 1707. [3] [2]
On 24 May 1710, Nathaniel married Sarah Cushing in the Second Church [2] [4] in Scituate, Massachusetts. [5] [1] Together they had children: [1] [2] [3]
Nathaniel died intestate on 27 Sep 1723 in Scituate, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts [4] and was buried in First Parish Cemetery, Scituate Harbor. [3] [2] [6]
On 26 December 1723, his widow Sarah and Mr. Samuel Stockbridge both of Scituate, were granted the letter of administration for his estate.[7]

His inventory was taken on 3 February 1723 in Scituate. He was a slaveholder and at the time of his death, he enslaved a black woman, who is not named in the documents.[8]

Nathaniel's wife, Sarah, apparently survived him as she is mentioned in the probate record. [9] It is presumed that she removed to Dorchester with her young children. [3]
