According to “The Yeaton Family of New England 1650-1900” by William Haslet Jones (Heritage Books: Bowie, MD, 1997), pp. 76, 58-9, 41, 22 (and earlier pages), your Nathaniel was Nathaniel-7 whose line is as follows:
Nathaniel-7 Yeaton b. 15 June 1842, d. 29 Dec 1926, married 2 June 1864, Louisa Melloon
John R.-6 Yeaton, b. 6 Oct 1811, d. 29 May 1885, married Mary E. Fredick
Isaac S.-5 Yeaton b. 10 June 1781, married on 27 Oct 1805, Jane Mitchell. He fought in the War of 1812 and his pension papers for that war exist and are abstracted.
Ebenezer-4 Yeaton b. 16 Nov 1768, d. 26 Aug 1847. Married Polly/Mary Chick.
Moses-3 Yeaton b.c.1730 d. 1783 married Alice Legro as proved by deed Daughter of John Legro as shown by a deed dated 17 March 1770 where Rachel Legro, Mary Legro and Alice Yeaton all quitclaim to John Legro, land of John Legro late of Somersworth which he bought of Moses Carr.

I rely on Jones for a stepping stone and this may not be correct. But as I stated in my posting I have done everything up to 1800 and you asked an 1864 question. You should doublecheck the line by finding primary sources to verify it.
If my guess to Hopley's ancestry is correct, Ebenezer-4, your ancestor, and Hopley were 2nd cousins.
