Is there a reliable source for excess deaths in US cities/counties/states around the time of the 1918 flu pandemic? I was able to find one datasource for Arizona and one for NYC but nothing specific for other regions. It would ideally have excess deaths data for the years 1910-1930 or even earlier than that.
