Stephen Stroud Whitehurst

Is anyone familiar with Stephen Stroud Whitehurst who was born in KY in 1827? He moved to Springfield, IL where he died in 1875. From records found so far he was a railroad lawyer and fairly well off, yet no obituary has been found. Family story says he is buried in Springfield and that he also had his father's body moved from KY to Springfield for burial. His wife, Maria Caroline Matheny, is found in cemetery records, but Stephen is not. After his death the rest of his family moved to Decauter, IL. He had a son named Merideth Helm Whitehurst who was supposedly an executive with the Illinois Central Railroad.

I'm helping a distant cousin with this line, any help appreciated.
