He remarried after his wife died to Bettie Hawkins in 1906.

He died in Oklahoma but was buried in Arkansas next to his first wife and children.

There is a depositon where he is trying to get money back from the United States for taking his horses during the war. In this depositon it shows the dates when he served in the war for the South and the North. It tells how he was made to sign up for the South and he ran away and joined the North.

*Information borrowed from Ann Place, who added a duplicate memorial.

He said he was threatened and forced to join by his father in law who was on the Confederate side.
