Sent: Friday, February 15, 2002 12:47 PM . Subject: NM deaths. My great grandfather, Timothy F. Herrington, died July 14, 1914 in Ranger Lake, Lea County, NM and is probably buried on his old ranch (homestead?) there. That date is before NM started keeping records so he is not listed in the state's records. Congratulations on a fine project.
