In theory the southern part of present-day Nevada, part of Clark County was part of Santa Ana County, New Mexico from its creation in New Mexico in 1852 until 29 December 1863 when it became part of the 3rd Judicial District of Arizona Territory.[1]

There is little chance someone as far away as Nevada would take the trouble to go to New Mexico to conduct their county business. It is unlikely any records of people living in Nevada are actually found in Santa Ana County records.
