I believe the Nathaniel that you are interested in was the son of Nathaniel Thornton Hynson V. The Nathaniel's (Papa) entire name was Nathaniel Thomas Hynson and he was born in 1843. I was told he ran away from home, was presumed dead but ended up in the Philippines.
Does this sound correct to you?
let me know.
I have a photo of his father and one of his mother. His father died in 1876 and I believe his mother died in 1864
