Hidalgo County New Mexico

This cemetery survey was also done by Terri Richards and she graciously donated the information to the US Gen Web Project, Hidalgo County. Thank you Terri ! The Cloverdale Cemetery is located 42 miles south of Animas, NM traveling on State road 338. It's located about 1.5 miles south of the old Cloverdale store. The land was deeded to the Cloverdale community by Mr. Brahmlett and is on what is now known as the Gray Ranch. Our tour and the histories listed here were provided by Mrs. Cordy Cowan. Mrs. Cowan said that she believes there are several more people of the Awtrey family buried here, but the graves are unmarked. There are a total of 10 unmarked graves.
