Death records were not required until 1880 in Rockland County N.Y. I have found a lot of death dates before 1880 using Church records if the decease attended church. Also many deaths were published in newspapers in the particular area. Another place to inquire is a cemetary alot of individuals are recorded by the caretaker of the cemetary for the region that you are looking for. I hope this helps you in your quest for the past.
