I checked several sources and did not find any record of his death.
These include - my file of mentions of deaths in Brazos Co. in newspapers published from 1839 through 1900. However, the newspaper notices prior to the fall of 1889 are very skimpy, since no local newspapers survive prior to that time.
Index to Brazos County probate packets
Payments for inquests.
And some other scattered sources.
If you are pretty sure that he died in Brazos Co., then you could narrow the date of his death by checking the microfilmed tax rolls for Brazos Co. They were compiled annually, and any adult man would have owed a poll tax and should thus be listed, even if he didn't own land.
Thus, if you happened to find him listed up through 1892, for example, and then he wasn't listed in 1893, well, that would give you some indication of when he died.
You should be able to borrow the Brazos County tax rolls microfilm through your local library.
Sorry I could not be more help.
