Hans Carlston Death Notice - Deseret News

Maybe its the spirit of Elijah, but I've been doing a little hunting the past few weeks trying to find more information about Hans Carlston and his son Peter Christian Carlston (my great grandfather).  There are a lot of remarkable stories that are part of the family legend, but none have been recorded that I've been able to read.

I understood that Hans was murdered over a business deal that went south, but per this notice in the Deseret News, it appears as though he died of heart failure: Deseret News Link.
