In 1910 he is listed as an inmate at the Soldiers' Home in Bennington in the 1910 census. From July 1912 to June 1913 he was at the National Home in Dayton, OH, returning to Togus, ME 10 days later and stayed until 1920. He returned to Bennington, as noted in his obituary, where he passed away. (Sources: U.S., National Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, 1866-1938, and census records as noted.
