Re: Can do look ups in Galveston

My gr,gr,grdfth, James Monroe Rice, died in a yellow fever epidemic while on a trip to Galveston, 10 Oct 1872. He had gone to Galveston to pick up supplies for his general store in Hamilton, TX. I tried a newspaper for that time period, but only mention of the epidemic was small notice that New Orleans might shut their port to any ships coming from Galveston because of the epidemic. I guess Galveston didn't want too much publicity regarding any local epidemic. I checked the list from site you gave, and I wondered if the book "Record of Interments 1866-1881, City of Galveston" might have him listed (?)
