Amanuensis Monday: Jacob Fladt Naturalization Record

For the next few Amanuensis Monday entries, I'm going to include the transcriptions of naturalization records that I found while searching Franklin County, Ohio. Records. When I know the individual's biographical sketch, I'll include them. Many of these entries will be collateral lines, but I hope someone might find their relative amongst my research.

Jacob Fladt is not a relative of mine. He's the grandfather of Magdalena Emma Fladt (1887 - 1976). Emma married the son (Conrad Christan Grener) of my 2nd great-grand aunt Mary Elisabeth Geisler Grener. I don't know more about Jacob but I know that others are working on this line.

Now, before you think I go off on major tangents all the time, let me say this. The last name Fladt is memorable to me for some reason. Whenever I'm searching records, I keep coming across this name. I don't know why. Since it keeps jumping out to me, though it's not really 'my family', I keep the make note of the record and I'll post the information here. Hopefully a Fladt descendant will find this information useful and the effort won't be wasted.

Declaration of Intention.

Be it remembered that on the 10th day of February of the year eighteen hundred and fifty-five, PERSONALLY APPEARED before me ALBERT B BUTTLES, Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas, within and for said County and State, Jacob Fladt an Alien, a native of Baden who being duly sworn according to law, on his oath doth declare and say that it is bona fide his intention to become a citizen of the United States, and to renounce forever all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign Prince, Potentate, State, or Sovereignty, whatever and more particularly all allegiance and fidelity to the Grand Duke of Baden whose subject he is.
