Church records are a often forgotten source of family information.  It was the church that many families looked to for births, deaths, and marriages.  In the early days many of the towns and villages were visited by visiting priest, so these records could be listed under another location.  In New Mexico be sure and look under El and Las which might have been part of the name.
