Re: Peter J. Prunier of Auburn Mass. in mid-late 1800s.
Thank you. I believe my great grandfather was actually Napolean A. Prunier, who for whatever reason changed his name to Nathaniel A. Payne. (His social security application indicates his real name as Napolean A. Prunier, date of birth 12/28/1890, place of birth, Auburn, Mass). He was known to friends simply as "Nap". He served in WWI and moved to Baltimore, Maryland following the war where he married Mary E. Kierchner and had five children-- Edith(b. 1920), Helen (b. 1921), Charles (b. 1923), James (b. 1925)and John (b. 1927). Their sixth child- George-- died as a child. Nathan worked as a baker. He later moved to Miami, Florida, where he died on 3/23/1970.
Let me know if you have any additional information concerning Napolean.Thanks again.
