"1. Would the dates of the index indicate that he died 1862 and after-not before?
2. Would there be a next step in finding his actual death certificate/death date? I surmise that he died before May of 1865 because of naming patterns in the family."
Check italiangen.org. You couldn't be buried in NYC without a death record, very, very early. My ggrandmother's uncle and foster father, Adolf Mincho, died in 1864, and he had one.
