History of John Henry Weber, Utah
Taken from the Utah History Encyclopedia. (Links Added)

Weber attended the rendezvous of 1826 in Cache Valley, the close of which appears to mark the end of Weber's own fur trade adventures. There is no clue as to why he left the mountains; however, it is possible that he left because of his age or because his friend, Andrew Henry, had already left the mountains the previous year. For whatever reason, John H. Weber definitely left the mountains by 1827 and spent his remaining years in the Midwest. He died in 1859.
