In theory the southern tip of present-day Nevada, that is the northern part of Clark County and southern parts of Lincoln and Nye counties were part of Taos County, New Mexico from its creation in New Mexico Territory in 1852 until about 1854 when the western part of Taos County was absorbed by Rio Arriba County.[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 Taos County records.
