It's no secret here at the blog about Meyer Family History that I have found several documents about Frederick Meyer [geb. 1851] Immigration, even his marriage. I have shared his passage plans, and his settlement at Jackson county Iowa. But there were the missing documents of his naturaliztion. So During Memorial weekend I was able to find his naturalization document. I had first looked in Greene and Calhoun. I foolishly did not look in Jackson county, Iowa until Memorial weekend. So take a look to see what I found then.
I'm a little disappointed that the co-signers often found in these documents aren't shown. But I'm thrilled all the same.
I'll share a few maps of Maquoketa platt maps later from Jackson co., Iowa.
You would find some of our surnames Of Michel, Schenk. Perhaps you can spot a few familiar names as you browse them. I'll have to see if I can find a general link to share.
I hope you will take the time to look.
