Sources indicate that Shadrick Worrell was on a visit to Mary Ann (Polly) (Worrell) Scott (his only child from his first marriage to Mary Montgomery) in Indiana when he died and was buried in Indiana.
In the book "History of Story County (Iowa)" (Volume One, page 38), Shad Worrell was elected Coroner of Story County on a vote of 35 in 1853. In the same book, it shows that Shad Worrell was one of the 99 assessed.
A message board entry gives this information: "He was born in Grayson County, Virginia in 1796. His parents were probably Amos Worrell, Sr. and Nancy Ellen (Nellie) Roberts. He served in the War of 1812 in Captain Michael Shively's company of the 57th Regiment of Virginia Militia from December 11, 1814 to February 22, 1815. This information is from his pension records. He appears on the 1817 Grayson County Tax Rolls. During the period of 1818 to 1821, he left Virginia and settled in Indiana where, after living in Iowa for a while, he died in 1885."
A RootsWeb entry indicates he also served in the Mexican War.
