Problem, Was a black man or mulatto in 1867 new mexico terittory allowed legally to a mixed racial marraige?
Was it common to have a common law marraige?
If he wasn`t married by the Catholic Church,what other religions were active in La Junta [Watrous] Toas or Mora County in New Mexico.
Where would I find these records?
If this man was a free man or possibly a slave before 1860 how could I find records?
