He worked as a Miner and then a Mining Company Teamster taking Timbers and other Supplies to the Mines when Needed,
And it was on a Cold November morning in 1871 were his Horse's slipped on the Steep Road that leads down from Virginia City NV were his Wagon hauling Timbers got away from him and Crashed over a Ravine, Though he tried to jump clear he was crushed to death by the Timbers,
The Local Paper described the scene as one coverd with blood and Gore, A rather nasty way to die at Age 27 or any age, Being a Member of the Local Masion Lodgehe was buried in the Masonic Cemetery at Gold Hill NV. the next day.
