Nathan Tilton was the son of Philip Tilton and Mary Batchelder. The town records for Scarborough, Maine contain the following: Reverend Nathan Tilton was born on 2 July 1772 at East Kingston, New Hampshire, and died on 4 October 1851. He graduated from Harvard in the class of 1796. On 2 October 1800, the trustees of the Second Congregational Church voted to offer Nathan Tilton $400 yearly as a salry or $600 settlement and $360 salary yearly during his ministry. He agreed to accept the position with the settlement and salary and was ordained Pastor of the Second Parish in Scarborough on 10 December 1800. He resigned from his position on 12 December 1827. "His natural character presented a marked combination of amiability and firmness, his clean and vigorous intellect was united with a rare modesty that often hid the charms which enhanced." "As a theologian, an Armenian at the time of his ordination he adopted the Unitarian view of the questions vexed in the New England churches..." "...he found in the Autum of life more than the pleasantness of spring and more than the fruit furness of summer." "...it was fitting that he should now be suffered to rejoin them, and with the falling leaves and dying flowers he has laid down in the dust."
