I didn't find anything about him in Ancestry and FamilySearch.
I'd contact the Southwest Mississippi Genealogy Society, http://swmgs.com/
and the Franklin County Public Library, www.llf.lib.ms/webpage_7.htm
and ask if they keep death indexes or have indexed obituaries.
If they don't have that kind of info, you can contact the Franklin County chancery Court Clerk who has probate records starting in 1842. I don't know if they have any kind of index or not. Successful Searching!
