I doubt that you will find anything like an obituary other than what you have.
In 1816 most of Ohio was wilderness. Just a few white people spread out in vast forests.
The Cleveland Public Library has an obit file that has obits going back to before 1850 but I doubt that there was anything like a newspaper in northern Ohio before the 1830's. The CPL site is;

The basic facts of the story seem reasonable. The Vermillion River has many stretches that are gorges. It's just west of Ridgeville Twp. And travel thru' heavy forests often meant following rivers in order to keep ones bearings.
Hope this helps.
