After serving until the close of the conflict, he was mustered out at Fort Leavenworth in 1848. In the spring of 1849, he cam to California. He settled in Boonville, Mendocino, California and married Orpha C. Hackler on 3 Dec 1853, in Mud Springs, El Dorado, California. He died on the 30 June 1896, Boonville, Mendocino, California. Any information would be appreciated.
