On the 1870 census he shows land and personal value that would show he is well off. I would check out land records in Denton Co, TX, what happens to the land? Records will be generated and his death date may show. If his wife out lives him, she will have to sign off when final sale of land is made. Otherwise, all heirs will sign off to give clear title to buyer. The Family History Library has microfilmed land records for Denton Co, TX 1854-1902 and index to 1903. You can get the film out on temporary loan at your local Family History Center. If you haven't done that before, they will show you how.
Have you checked out the Denton Co, TX GenWeb site. I took a quick look and they have a volunteer who will do lookups for wills 1876-1940.
Also, check out RAOGK (Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness) site. There are several volunteers listed who will do various lookups etc.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
