Died Jan. 22, 1868, in St. Louis.
"After completing his studies at the Law School he established himself
in business at Leavenworth, Kansas, and afterwards at St. Louis. Three
short months only were allowed him here before death overtook him. His
disease worked severely and rapidly. He was unconscious on the day of his
death, and no dying utterances, therefore, light the shadows of his last hours,
and soothe his afflicted friends. It is consoling to know that his aims in
life were of the noblest and purest kind; that his character was of unblemished
integrity and uprightness; that his most intimate associates in college and in
business bear testimony to the sterling excellence of his mental and heart
qualities. His partner in business thus writes of him. "He was
a young man of rare promise. Few students had drunk so profoundly and
judiciously at the fountain of knowledge as he had. He had gathered
knowledge not for the recitation roo, but for the work of life, and on every
occasion he gives evidence of the diligence and thoroughness of his scholastic
career. Education with him had performed its great object - strengthened
and disciplined his mind. He was as a scholar, upon every subject and on
every occasion, a credit to his Alma Mater. As a lawyer he gave promise of
remarkable excellence. A diligent student with a clear head, a thoroughly
disciplined and strong mind; he possessed all the qualities which would
certainly have placed him in the front rank in his profession.' To this
testimony all who know him respond. We deeply regret that the early
promise of so brilliant a manhood should be cut off by so untimely a
death." - Wesleyan University Alumni Obituary Record.
