Western Frontiersman. In 1855 he bought a farm south of Kansas City on State Line Road. It ran from 103rd to 107th Street and east to Wornall Road. On the crest of the hill south of Indian Creek he built a stone farmhouse. There he died, aged 77 and blind. He was buried about 200 yards northwest of 101st and Jefferson Streets, in Stubbins Watts cemetery, where he lay for almost 25 years. His remains were disinterred and reinterred in Mount Washington Cemetery through the efforts of Major General Granville M. Dodge and John Colton, in 1904.
