I didn't find his death in Ancestry nor in FamilySearch.
The Piatt County Clerk & Recorder of Deeds has birth & death records starting in 1877. They should be willing to do a lookup since you have the full death date.
However there are other options. The IRAD County Listing (do a Google search on t he name) has death records 1877-1915 and death record index 1877-1974.
The Piatt County Historical & Genealogical Society, www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ilpchgs/research.htm
has local newspapers, index crd files of births, marriage & deaths, family files, cemetery lists, etc. Successful Searching!
