United States Gotoarrow.png Nevada Gotoarrow.png Valencia County

Valencia and other counties in New Mexico Territory in 1852.
In theory the far southern tip of present-day Nevada, that is the south part of Clark County was part of Valencia County, New Mexico from its creation in New Mexico Territory in 1852 until about 1854 when the northwestern part of Valencia County was absorbed by Bernalillo County.[1] [2]

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 Valencia County records.

See also Valencia County, Arizona.
