"Hidalgo County was created on February 25, 1919 from the southern part of Grant County.

"According to the New Mexico Blue Book, 2001-02 edition, it was named for the Mexican town of Guadalupe Hidalgo, where the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed in 1848.

"However, according to The Place Names of New Mexico, by Robert Julyan, 1996, and to the Service Record-World War I and II, published by the V.F.W. Post No. 3099 in the late 1940s, Hidalgo county was named in honor of El Cura Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, the patriot priest who in 1810 led the revolt that resulted in Mexico's independence. We thank Edmundo Saucedo of Lordsburg, NM for additional information."
