I see Schuyler Colfax is buried in South Bend. Colorado has the longest continuous commercial road named after him. Runs from Lakewood, in the West. Through the entire city of Denver. And well past Aurora, Colorado on the East.

Part of Colfax is also US 40, which runs through Indiana and at one point stretched from coast to coast.
