NY Vital Records - New York began statewide registration of births, marriages, and deaths in 1880-81, under supervision of the State and local boards of health. Compliance with the law was incomplete until 1900 or even later; therefore certificates are lacking for many events.
Several of the State's larger cities recorded vital events for varying periods of time prior to 1880.
Cyrenus Smalley most likely dies in FLORIDA.
Florida Vital Records - The law requiring the registration of births and deaths in Florida passed in 1917; however, it was many years after that before we had consistent registration.While we have some birth records dating back to 1865, they are sparse.
