New find for me!

Rosetta Abney, d/o John Armle & Rebecca Abney lived for a time in Chavez Co, NM. She and her husband Dr. Charles M Yater and family appear on the 1910 census in Roswell, Chavez Co, NM. Rosetta's oldest son Max Abney Yater b.1905 apparently married his first wife in NM c.1919. I would like to know who he married and the date. Also, from census 1930, in TX it looks like this wife probably died sometime after 1922 as there are two children Charles M Yater b.1920 and Maxine Yater b.1922, both b.NM. Texas has these early births online and you can find parents names that way, but I don't find them online for NM, as I tried that for an alternate means of learning who Max's first wife may have been.

I would like to find an obit on said first wife if one exists.
Also John Abney (b. Oct. 18, 1833 d. Feb. 6, 1903) is buried in Roswell as is his wife Rebecca Abney (b. Mar. 14, 1834 d. Sep. 18, 1908), who may have obituaries in an area newspaper.

I am slowly piecing together this part of my family. It looks like Rosetta and her family along with her parents probably came to NM together (they are all on the 1900 Johnson Co, TX census) sometime between 1900 & 1903 since her father died in NM in 1903 and is buried there. Her parents obviously didn't live long after their arrival in NM and Rosetta & Charles are buried in Texas, so I assume at some point they moved back, but after 1920 when they are on the census in Roswell. Iv'e not found them after 1910 although both died in the 40s.
