States: New Mexico: Curry
Can anyone recommend a researcher in Curry County who could comb through some old records and any newspaper archives there may be from, say, 1915 through the 1920s? I have just learned tonight that my great grandfather, Martin Gilbert Cottrell, was a Baptist preacher living in Bellview in Curry County as late as 1929, and we lose track of him about 1910 when he separated from my great grandmother.
About the only way to really find out what he was up to is to sift through old newspapers and see where he performed a wedding or conducted a funeral or the like. So it's time-consuming and I'm thousands of miles away. If anyone knows of someone or could recommend someone, I'd appreciate it.
