In the US Census of 1880 at Grand Island, Hall Co, Nebraska. quotes the 1880 US Census taken at Grand Island, Hall, NE, as revealing that Homer's mother and father were both born in Scotland. Homer was born in Indiana, was 32 years old and married. In fact, his father was born in Tennessee - his grandfather in Ireland. Perhaps people who'd fled their homes-turned-battleground were not candid with the US Census.

Homer lived in Grand Island, Hall, NE. where he worked as a freight agent for the St. Joseph and Denver railroad. Grand Island was a Company Town for the Railroad, so his was an important job.

He died after contracting pneumonia while on a trip to help his sister, Abby, whose husband had just died, leaving her with four children to raise.
