Exit code 127 usually is caused by some kind of "command not found" situation.

What is the output of
ls -ld /usr/bin/start*
ls -ld /home/root/Mod*

root@beaglebone:~# ls -ld /usr/bin/start*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1623 May 18 2012 /usr/bin/startlxde
-rwxr--r-- 1 root root 30 Nov 12 21:53 /usr/bin/startup.sh
root@beaglebone:~# ls -ld /home/root/Mod*
ls: cannot access /home/root/Mod*: No such file or directory
root@beaglebone:~# ls -ld /root/Mod*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 844944 Apr 18 2017 /root/Modbus

In startup.sh you wrote /home/root/Modbus but the file in reality is /root/Modbus

You have to correct the contents of startup.sh, isn't that obvious?
