He was known as Irwin by his family. He contracted tuberculosis. Brother Ben arranged for a physician, medications, and trips to Denver for his health. In January 1870, Irwin sent letter to Benjamin that the western climate was providing relief. Benjamin was encouraged by the news that Irwin had gained some temporary relief in the mountain air, though not a complete cure. The climate had restored Irwin's wife's health, but he died in December at thirty-eight years of age. Irwin and Ben had been very close.
