I'm not seeing a death for him in the Providence Vital Records.

Vol. 7  Deaths 1871-1880- It's PDF file slow to download. "Bishops" appear on image 21 - page 30

============

Edit to Add-

I skimmed through  the death notices in The Providence Evening Press from 27 Sept.- 29 Oct. 1880 and didn't see him mentioned.

The Google com papers aren't searchable and I didn't read the other pages to see if some sort of accident was mentioned, so that's a possibility. Each edition is only 4 pages long with death notices on page 3.

Thank you for looking RJ

He's not on a list of transcribed cemetery records for Rhode Island as Herbert or as Alfred:
