Union County residents moved easily throughout the area. Missing property owners or spouses can sometimes be found by checking nearby communities of Texline and Dalhart TX, Kenton OK, Raton, Springer, Tucumcari, Roy or Bueyeros NM.

Be sure to take this into consideration as you conduct research.

Also many couples come to Clayton simply to get married. New Mexico has more lenient marriage license requirements than surrounding states. You might be looking in the wrong place if you are trying to locate someone based on a Clayton marriage record !
