      died of Infectious Hydrophobia (rabies). He was out bear hunting when one of
      his dogs got in a fight with a bear. Hiram saved the dog but the dog later went
      mad and bit him. It took 6 strong men to hold him down when he went mad himself
      and towards the end he was chained to a tree to keep him away from everyone
      else until he died.
