His tombstone is on findagrave.com in Oneida county, Wisconsin. Have you gotten his obituary from their historical society in Oneida county?

If my link above doesn't work, go to findagrave and find person #76645668

There should have been some write-up in the newspaper. Also, if you can request his death certificate either from the Oneida county courthouse, or the historical society in Oneida county, maybe it says more information. Exact birthdate, or name of father, or maiden name of mother.

This page has some historical society addresses

This looks promising:
