Birth*28 April 1720Nathan Hayward was born on 28 April 1720 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,2,3
Occupation*He was a stonecutter and carver of gravestones. He developed, after an earlier geometric style, a design involving wings which appeared to sprout from the ears of his skulls. This design had further developed by 1759 into one involving a face with wings, a style soon taken up by other established stone carvers in neighboring areas at Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).4
Relationship Note*Nathan was fourteen years older than his cousin Ebenezer Hayward, and it is likely that Ebenezer learned to carve gravestones in his cousin Nathan's shop in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). Nathan's face-with-wings design appears to have been the inspiration for the design which Ebenezer developed in the early 1760s.4
Death*29 June 1794He died on 29 June 1794 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, at age 74.2
