Marriage & death in Roswell, NM

Marriage & death in Roswell, NM

I am searching for the marriage of Mr.Eunice Barney LEWIS to Dorthe Ketner Goddard (widow)around 1923 said to have taken place in Roswell.
Also searching for when/where Mr. Lewis died and is buried. Descendants say it was in Roswell in 1930 but he does appear on the 1930 census, living at 306 W. Mathews. He died prior to 1935 as his widow married a Mr. Shorty Langley in 1935. Don't know the exact date/place for this marriage either but probably Roswell.
Is there anyone out there that might assist me in finding out about Eunice Barney Lewis of Roswell?

I checked the Roswell city cemetery -- South Park Cemetery -- for a record of Eunice Barney Lewis' death/burial. I'm sorry to report that I find no record of any burial at South Park by this name.

I searched the marriage records for Chaves County as well as death records. Mr. Lewis did not marry Dorothy Goddard here in Roswell not did he pass away here.

Since Dorothy's youngest child was born in Oklahoma I would start looking there for a marriage.

Without an exact date of death it is hard to find out anything about him, do you hae a date of birth??

I searched for Dorothy's marriage to Shorty Langley, did not occur here either.

Thanks so much for the research you have done. I am really stumped about the place of E.B. Lewis' death. I wonder if he really is buried at South Park in Roswell but doesn't have a tombstone? He is last listed in the Roswell city directory of 1933. His widow married next Lawrence L. Langley (Shorty) about 1934/5. They divorced presumably in Chaves county (1940/41) and she married last to Benjamin M. Clark about 1941.
Her obituary dated 1944 stated she had been a resident of Roswell for the past 20 years.
Next time you get to the courthouse, could you check for the divorce from Lawrence Langley? Perhaps some details of her Lewis marriage might be mentioned and it would most certainly give the date & place of the Langley marriage and divorce (about 1940/41)
I found out Dorothy's youngest daughter, Loma Goddard Campbell, was born in Newcastle, OK in 1922. So far no record of Dorothy's marriage to E.B. Lewis in and around Newcastle can be located. The search goes on! Again, I do appreciate your assistance on my dead end.
