SOMETIMES they lead you to things you might want ... sometimes they lead to

Mostly they just waste your time.

Germany. One of Andrew's sons, Joseph published the Delaware County

Are you by chance related to an Evelyn Campbell that used to live in
Bovina or maybe South Kortright? She and a Mrs. Keator used to be together
a lot and I sort of think they were related. They were friends of my mom
for years and I remember seeing a lot of them when I was a little girl and
we lived in SK. I am quite sure that Evelyn never married and Mrs. Keators
husband died when he was young. Just curious.

Thanks for the response....
The only information I have is that Nancy Bailey married John Henderson, and
they lived in the Walton, Delaware Co, NY area....their daughter Philanda
Henderson, born around 1834, married Daniel Mains--they were my ggg
grandparents...it was only recently on a trip to the Walton Library that I
found her maiden name in some microfilm copies of the local newspaper....I'll
keep your email on file and if I find something to connect to any of your
names, I'll get back to you....maybe once I find them on the census records,
that might help...Nancy and John were married and born long before they
started keeping state mandated records on weddings and births, so I have to
try to find something in the newspaper (I think that started in Walton around
the 1850's), or the census records--but even the older census records only
listed names ...so this will be a challenge....
I have a William Bailey who married Mary Curry, Nancy Bailey
who married Robert Hoy,another Bailey (male) who married Mary
Hitzer and Alexander Bailey who married Nancy Forsythe. All
these Baileys were bros & sis and originated from Belfast,
Ireland. William is my direct descendant and lived in Bovina. I
know he was naturalized 5/29/1838 and have been told he met
his wife on the ship coming to America, about 1823. The ship
became shipwrecked and he thought she died. He went to her
parents home to tell them the bad news and she answered the
door. They had about 10 children. One daughter, Eliza Mary was
my GGGGM, marrying James Maurice Campbell about 1853 in
Bovina. They are buried in the Bovina Ctr Cem, which I hope to
find next summer when I come exploring.
Let me know if anything sound remotely correct. I do have some
og the other sibling's names and marriages.

I think that the answer is: From the earliest years of the United States under the federal system. Article One of the U.S. Constitution provides that the Congress shall have the power to enact a uniform rule of naturalization. This implies that the concept of naturalization was well understood by the delegates to the 1787 Philadelphia Convention. It also implies that each state had its own naturalization law under the Articles of Confederation, which made a uniform national rule desirable. I also recall that during the Adams Administration (1797-1801), the Alien and Sedition Acts were passed. The Alien Act increased the residence requirement for naturalization, I think to fourteen years. It was repealed under the Jefferson Administration. However, to increase the residence requirement implies that there had already been a residence requirement. I think that the First Congress in 1789 passed a naturalization law, in accordance with the power that the Constitution had given it.
Naturalization is not a modern invention but a modern form of various practices that have been recognized since ancient times. In the European monarchies gentlemen of foreign birth, especially military and naval officers, sometimes took an oath of allegiance to the ruler of a foreign state and became his or her subjects. For example, Christopher Columbus had become a subject of Queen Isabella of Spain by swearing an oath of allegiance to her, and so sailed as a Spanish officer.
Naturalization as we know it is the modern American form of an ancient concept, of changing one's national loyalty in a formal way.
