An 1895 article4876 reported that Marino Armijo had been arrested in Albequerque, NM, on the charge of bigamy. Charges had been pressed by Mrs Clara Armijo of New York. She stated that she was married to Marino Amiijo; they had lived together until 1891, when he mistreated her and left her, going to New Mexico. Armijo had there remarried his first wife, whom he had previously divorced.
Church records, as reported in the article4876 provided the date and place of their marriage,
It is likely that Clara is the Clara B Wallis, age 15, that appears4877 in 1880 as the daughter of John G and Elizabeth B Wallis.
