YOGSOH MORGAN-02:  GENEALOGICAL EXTRACTS FROM NATURALIZATION RECORDS MORGAN COUNTY, OHIO.  February 1982, By the Morgan County Genealogical Society.  Compiled by Charles Woodburn and Elmer Gerlach.  Fifty pages, 8" by 11", cardstock covers, stapled and taped.  A Department of Morgan County Historical Society 1982.  This book is comprised of an abstract of all the Naturalization actions taken in Morgan County, Ohio beginning with the formation of the county in 1819.  No Naturalizations were certified after the date of 1899.  The information came from the Common Pleas Court Minute Volumes A-H, the Naturalization Records and Declarations of Intent in the Probate Clerk's Office, Morgan
County Supreme Court Minutes in the Archives, File Boxes in the Archives and File boxes in the Clerk of the Courts' Office.  For the most part but certainly not always, the two papers may be the Declaration of Intent and the Final Record of Naturalization.  However, in some cases the Declaration of Intent had been filed in another county or the state of previous residence.  Likewise, the men might file their Declaration of Intent here and die or move further west before the actual granting of citizenship papers was accomplished.  The Naturalization laws differed somewhat at different time periods, but generally there was a period of time, as long as five years residence in the U.S. was required, along with a written Declaration of Intent to forswear allegiance to rheir old ruler and become a U. S. Citizen two years prior to the granting of citizenship.  Families, wives and children were "grandfathered in" as citizens when their husband or father's citizenship was granted.  If the names seem very familiar to us, we have to remember that after we became a country, even the English, Irish, Scots, and Welsh were now foreigners and needed to follow the law to become citizens here.  Surnames with two or more records are:  Ahle 2 (documents- understood), Anderson 6, Ardin 2, Armstrong 2, Atkinson 2, Bac(h/k)man 2, Bar(c/k)l(a/e)y 2, Barrow 2, Bates 2, Beisser 2, Bell 6, Black 6, Boden 3, Booker 2, Boyd 2, Brauer 2, Brill 2, Brown 7, Burkart 2, Burton 4, Caldwell 3, Cahill 2, Campbell 4, Carruthers 2, Chris/s 3, Clark 2, Colgan 2, Co(l/l)ison Conn 3, Cooey 2, Cooper 4, Cope 2, Cork 2, Coulter
