" The General suffered with chronic disease of the bowels, first contracted in
Mexico some twenty years previous. Here he engaged in business as a commission merchant, and established a prosperous house. His health continued to decline, and all efforts to restore it were unavailing, and on the 29th of September 1867, he died at peace with all mankind. After the body had lain in state in the church, at the corner of Eighth street and Washington avenue, for several days, where thousands took their farewell look at their beloved and honored chieftain, he was buried in Bellefontaine cemetery, on the 3rd of October.
