He was tentatively identified in Clark's Fork, Custer, Montana in the Federal Census of 1880 and again in the 1900 Federal Census in Sweet Grass, Chouteau, Montana. No spouse. Both times his occupation:has been as a prospector. Apparently, he died at the Montana Soldiers Home as the date if death was reported by the home.
