In Reply to: Do early death records exist? where? by Kristy Stevens of 123

Kristy I don't know of death records for that time frame. There is a fellow who has indexed some of the Greenwood County newspapers (write to the Greenwood County Historical Society and they will check those indices); you might look at your local library at the 1880 mortality schedule if he died between July 1 1879 and June 30 1880 he should appear there; you can check the Kansas State Historical Society website to see what newspapers were available in the county for that time frame. Consider Lyon County as well since Madison is just below the Lyon/Greenwood County line; the Greenwood county cemeterys have been read and the county historical society should be able to check those for you; if none of those help you might check with the registrar of deeds at the Greenwood County courthoue and see if there is a sale of his land, or a probate record in the District Court office. Good luck to you.
