Nathan Cohen was a prominent Tamworth businessman and community member. Born in Port Macquarie and a grandson of convict Henry Cohen, he moved to Tamworth in the late 1850s to assist an uncle, William Cohen, in his store. Nathan Cohen eventually established his own business interests – as a real estate agent and auctioneer, in mining, a soap works, dairying. He twice served as Mayor of Tamworth.

He had strong connections to Maitland. His brother, Henry Emanuel Cohen, had spent his early working life in Maitland at David Cohen and Company. His daughter, Ethel, and his cousin, Henry Samuel Cohen, are buried in the Maitland Jewish Cemetery. His two wives (following his first wife’s death he married her sister) were sisters whose paternal aunts were married respectively to George Judah Cohen (senior) and Lewis Wolfe Levy of David Cohen and Company. His daughter, Cora, married a son (Henry David) of David and Julia Cohen of David Cohen and Company. His son, Percy Brighton Cohen, a dentist, lived and worked in Maitland for some time.
