I'm trying to confirm the death of Lydia Cardozo/Cardoza, who was living in Cleveland when she died on May 10, 1864. I've searched the cemetery records and found an infant Cardozo who died on March 7, 1864 and was buried in the Woodland Cemetery, but no mention of Lydia Cardozo. There was a family connection: Henry Cardozo, the child's father, was Lydia's eldest son.
The Cardozos, who originated in Charleston, South Carolina, were black; they were described as "mulatto" in the US Census and as "colored" in the Cleveland city directory, where Henry Cardozo was listed between 1861 and 1867. The family is related to the Jewish Cardozos of Charleston.
Are there death certificates available for Cleveland in the year 1864? Where might I find them, and is it possible to search and obtain a copy?
I appreciate any help from the collective mind.
