About Nathaniel Stanton

He served on the galley "Shark" under his brother, Capt. Theophilus Stanton, in 1776, and on the ship "Oliver Trumbull" in 1779 (Conn. Men in the Rev'n, 594 & Rev. Rolls. 262). The "Shark" was probably captured, as Nathaniel Stanton was made prisoner and was kept two years in Canada. After the war, he was captain of a merchant vessel and, in 1785, was lost at sea in a hurricane in the West Indies.
