Compeller's Notes:
Several sources give his wife's name as Desire Gray, the daughter of Edward Gray. She would have been around 10, so this is highly doubtful. In the records extent his wife's first name was Mary. Lots of confusion here, and I have chosen Mary Pirece as having the best claim to be Nathaniel's wife.9,6
