Additional detail for reference: Line 21, dwelling 53

Comment: Source includes date (August/1851), age (48), and location (Germany). Using her age and the official census date of 1 June 1900 gives a birth date range from 2 June 1851 to 1 June 1852, which encompasses the given date. Note that the value of 48 appears to be a correction, replacing a value of 49. The presence of numerous such corrections on the page, including everyone in this dwelling, suggest an enumerator error.

Additional detail for reference: Line 78, dwelling 37

Comment: Source includes age (58) and location (Ger-Polish). Using her age and the official census date of 15 Apr 1910 gives a birth date range from 16 Apr 1851 to 15 Apr 1852. It is not clear what Ger-Polish means, unless Polish is used as an ethnic identification; Poland did not exist between 1779 (when it was finally, and fully, partioned between other powers) and 1918 (when the Second Polish Republic was founded), except for a semi-autonomous region of Russia that existed in 1856.

Comment: Source includes year of immigration to the United States (1887) and years in the U.S. (13). These are consistent and, with the date of the census (1 Jun 1900) suggest a date range of 1 Jan 1887 to 31 May 1887 for her arrival in the United States.

Comment: Source includes an rough date (when he [son Edward Marks] was 5 years old).

census-us-1920-ps-mn-ottertail-123-7b: 1920 U.S. Census, population schedule, Minnesota, Otter Tail County, Vergas Village, enumeration district 123, sheet 7B (form/penned) or page 86B (stamp sequence, not visible on page); 1920 United States Federal Census, database with images, Ancestry (http://www.ancestry.com: accessed before 17 August 2018) > "Minnesota > Otter Tail > Candor > District 0123" image 11; citing “Fourteenth Census of the United States, 1920, NARA microfilm publication T625, roll 847 (of 2076), National Archives and Records Administration, Washington, D.C.” [The sheet and stamped numbers are in conflict and don’t agree with the dwelling ordering.

Comment: Source includes year of naturalization (<conflict>). See research notes for conflict details.

citizenship-certificate-edward-marks-1950: Certificate of Citizenship for Edward Marks; United States Department of Justice, District of Columbia, certificate number A-200131, application numbers 1600-16614 and 1600-78799, certificate issued 30 Jan 1950 [This is a certificate proving citizenship, not naturalization.]

Comment: Source includes date (July 25, 1900) of original citizenship approval. This is for one of Michael's sons, and when used in conjunction with Edward's military draft card for WWI, implies Michael's father was naturalized on 25 Jul 1900. Since, prior to 1922, wives became citizens through their husband's naturalization, they did not have their own papers.

military-draftreg-edward-marks-1918: Draft registration card for Edward Marks (1918); U.S., World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918, database with images, Ancestry (https://ancestry.com: accessed before 2018) > “Minnesota > Otter Tail County > 1 > Draft Card M” image 63; citing “World War I Selective Service System Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918. Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, M1509, 4,582 rolls, imaged from Family History Library microfilm”

Comment: Source indicates Edward was a "Citizen by Fathers Naturalization Before Registrant's Majority." In most states prior to the 1970s the age of majority was 21. This indicates he acquired his citizenship before 12 Nov 1903. This source is used in combination with Edwards Certificate of Citizenship to give a date for his father Michael's naturalization date. Lottie would have been considered a citizen due to the naturalization of her husband.
