Cemeteries Estancia/Willard area

In old family records I just found, the death of my great aunt in the Estancia/Willard area was 1908. They were homesteading down there and she died from Typhoid. Notes said she was buried on the prairie. Could she have been buried on their homestead at that time? Or any cemeteries to suggest?
Cannot find her in the New Mexico death records. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

What are the names? I currently live in this area, and can maybe do some digging. I also have a Torrance County history book that may have some information in it.

That would be wonderful and greatly appreciated! Their names were Goffred(many spellings) and Mary Loving. Thank you so much!

Unfortunately no "Loving" listed in the book. Will keep an eye out when I am at cemeteries.

Just a note to let you know that Loving may be spelled Leving or Living also. Have found it all three ways in the records up here. Also do you know if there were any burial laws at that time....or could she have been buried on their homesteaded land? Thanks again!

From the BLM history of their land patent, I found Maria(Mary's) Leving or Loving's date of death as jun9, 1909.
I see Willard had a newspaper at that time but not finding any place that has the 1909 papers. Do you have any thoughts?
Thanks again!
