Dear Ms. Clement,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
According to the Georgia Archives, with the exception of the City of Savannah and the City of Macon, there was no official registration of deaths in the State of Georgia prior to 1919. You may wish to look for alternate records such as newspaper obituaries. The Library of Congress’ website Chronicling America provides information about accessing historic newspapers. You also may be interested in Georgia State University’s guide to genealogical sources.
In addition, we suggest you search the FamilySearch wiki for the state of Georgia that may provide suggestions where his birth and death may have been recorded.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
