His death certificate states that, in 1923, he had resided in the state of Colorado for 34 years - this would indicate his arrival in 1889. The 32 years between his birth in New York and his western arrival remain a mystery.

After serving as Clerk and Treasurer of Dolores County, he retired to a ranch three miles north of Mancos, Colorado. At the age of 65, he died there of influenza, complicated by the bronchial asthma he had suffered for the last twenty five years of his life.
