After the war, Upham and his brother Henry became engaged in various business activities in Arkansas, including part ownership of a saloon, managing general stores, and selling goods by consignment along the Arkansas River. Upham lived at Devalls Bluff, and later moved to Woodruff County, Arkansas, where he was elected to the legislature and was appointed chancery clerk for Woodruff County in 1869. At the outbreak of the Brooks-Baxter War, Upham became a militia commander and U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Arkansas. He was actively engaged in combat operations during this period and was wounded in an assassination attempt. In later years, Upham returned to his home and farm. He died in 1883.
