Castle Garden death and birth

Classification: Query
Surnames: Pfister
My Swiss relatives Caspar and Elisabeth Pfister and their 11 mo. old daughter Elisabeth arrived at Castle Garden on Mar. 7 1870 on the SS Paraguay. We think Elisabeth gave birth to Katherine Pfister in May 1870. Family history says Caspar died and Elisabeth met her husband somehow associated with immigration - we think he arrived at Castle Garden in May 1870 and met her then. We are trying to determine if Caspar died between March-June 1870. Does anyone know if it is possible to verify deaths there, given the fire at Castle Garden that burned so many records?
