Family moved to Sherman, Wyoming, circa 1870 (after Eli died?), and lived there long enough for the two youngest sisters to marry and have children buried in Sherman, victims of scarlet fever (see Helen East Holliday DeWitt notes cited in Sources, below).

Excerpt from Progressive Men of Wyoming (see link in Sources, below):

[Eli] was a prosperous farmer in his native county and in 1852 made a trip to California, going by boat to Council Bluffs, Iowa, and from there across the plains and mountains by teams to what was then the land of promise to all quarters of the globe. In 1855 he returned to his home by the Panama route and in 1858 removed to Douglas county, Ill., later making his home in Jackson couty of that state. In 1868 he made a visit to his son in Wyoming and while there prospected in Douglas Creek, now in the Keystone mining district, being among the first to become interested in mining there and the first recorder of the district. He died on November 22, 1868, near Sherman, Wyo., and two years later his family became residents of the territory. He was a gentleman of influence in business and social circles during his life and enjoyed the esteem of all who knew him.
