He died in Overton Hospital (General Hospital) on Main St., Memphis. He had a recurring fever, which he believed was Diphtheria. He was originally buried in Elmwood Cemetery, Fowler #580, Sp.1

In 1866, however, he was disinterred along with approximately 800 other Union soldiers and moved to Memphis National Cemetery. Something happened along the way and the identities of the majority of the soldiers were lost.

He was never married.

He served in the 15th Independent Ohio Battery, Light Artillery
