I think he died in about 1876 at Ottumwa.
Helped with his brother James to build the first railroad into Fairfield Iowa. James and his family are buried here too.

The first train to arrive in Fairfield (1858) was from Burlington, Iowa, on the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad. Track construction was completed to Omaha, Nebraska, sometime after the Civil War ended.
