Henry was found on the 1850 Iowa Co. Wisconsin census listed as a miner. That area was the heart of the lead mining activity. He possibly contracted health problems in later years connected with the lead mining.

It wasn't unusual for a person to die at the age of 45 during that time period.

Since his children all remained in the the same area or moved to OK it is unlikely that he moved to a totally different area. He would have probably stayed in close proximity to the children.

I have checked land deeds in Cooke Co. and Henry didn't own any land there. I also checked for probate records and found none. Unless someone runs across an old newspaper with his death date it is unlikely that we will ever know for sure when he died or where he is buried.
