I'd contact the Clark County Genealogical Library, www.marshall-il.com/
and ask about a copy of his death notice from the newspaper. They also might have cemetery inventories.
You should be able to order a copy of his death record from the Clark County Clerk & Recorder Deeds. they have birth & death records starting in 1865.
If you're still interested in the Almhouse records, I'd contact the Illinois State Archives. Successful Searching!
