Any civilian records of deaths in military (1892)?

Lt. Charles H. Cochran died at Fort Logan, Colorado around Sept. 29, 1892 from typhoid fever. Would the only records of his death be with the military or would civilian authorities also have records? I assume any records for this time period would be with NARA, but I did not see any relevant listings in their microfilms online. And, it may be too early for civilian records as well.

I found his death location and cause from a newspaper article which I placed on his Find A Grave memorial here:

He was serving at Fort Omaha in Nebraska immediately prior to his death and was transferred to Fort Logan, CO about a month before his death according to another newspaper article. He was a West Point graduate, class of 1883, serving in the 7th Infantry.
