Notes for N
ATHAN ^ HENRY SPICERI, (5):
Nathan and his second wife Abigail are buried at Fort Ann, Washington County, New York in a small cemetery at the crossroad between Hadlock and Buttermilk Falls Road. The graves were first apparently marked with two field stones, and later headstones.

Inscription on the headstone of Nathan Spicer:
"In memory of Mr. Nathan Spicer,
who departed this life July 27, A.D. 1811,
aged 76 years

Com living men, as you pass by
As you ar now so once was I
As I am now so you must bee
Prepare for death
and follow me

Useful in life
Resigned in death
And at Gods call
Give up my breath"

Nathan as well as many of his descendants was a blacksmith. His craft was highly respected and versitile. Nathan was skilled at his craft. Blacksmithing fell into 3 specialtie groups as described in Jean Grubes book entailed preforming a wide variety of work, "[group 1]...all sorts of iron or boat work, chaise and chair work, cleaning and mending guns, pistols, locks and keys, cleans and mends jacks, shoes horses, and makes all kinds of kitchen furniture, ...hinges for houses, etc...cranes, tongs, trivets, spits, pans, drippers, skimmers, etc...repairs all kinds of things, and made Betty lamps and other lighting fixtures. Tools ususally included the hearth with bellows, water trough, shovels, tongs, rakes, pokers, and water containers for dampening down the fire and cooking objects...[group 2] anvil, sledges, tongs, swages, cutters, chisels, and hammers...[group 3]shoeing box which contains knives, rasps and files for preparing the horses hooves for shoes, an iron stand for supporting the horses foot while working on it and a special hammer and nails to fasten the shoe to the hoof."

Blacksmiths also made wagon wheels, axes, sleigh runners, bits for horses, iron fittings for houses and schooners, chains, ploughs, any item forged from metals.

One can assume that Nathan and his sons may have put their skills to work for the Revolution.
