Query: Copeland

I have been researching my Copeland ancestors for some time and have found that my gggrandfather , Colson Copeland (b. 1801) was a blacksmith/farmer and lived for some time in Wood Cty Texas.  The family was last on the 1870 census.  My widowed gggrandmother is listed on the 1880 census living with her son in Arkansas.  Colson must have died sometime between 1870 and 1879 as he is not listed in the 1880 mortality index.  Is there a way to find out his date/cause of death in Wood County at that time?  Thank you in advance for any information.
