Tolle was referred to as a reliable person to contact for verification of his (Kit's) claims about conditions of that area during the Civil War. He was also mentioned in the Draper Collection, and some Staggs probates. It isn't known at this time just when he died, or where he is buried.

He died 14 Nov 1839 and was buried in the Tolle cemetery on Route 1237, in Lewis County, Kentucky. In 1840 there was a Susan Tolle living next to Stephen who may have been the widow of Thomas Newton Tolle, and in 1845 an Eliza S. Tolle married George Purcell, in Mason County, Kentucky.
