- Nathaniel and his family moved to Wolfe Island in the 1820s. Nathaniel and Polly both drowned when the ferry, Hiram and Mary, that plied the St. Lawrence River between Kingston and Wolfe Island capsized in a squall. The crew and passengers, 11 in number, were thrown into the water. All were rescued except Nathaniel and Polly. Polly's body was recovered, but Nathaniel's was found the following year.
