John died from cholera.
His father Gilbert emptied his tool chest, which was made of oak boards and which dovetailed together with a tight-fitting lid, placed the boy's body, wrapped in a blanket, inside.
He is buried in his father's tool chest near the Saline Ford at the confluence of Salt Creek and the Platte River along the Oxbow Trail.
