An Hudson County Index of Petitions for Naturalizations had pointed me toward some information for James Armstrong on Oct. 18, 1852. I didn't find anything regarding my ancestor's naturalization (yet) but I did find an Affidavit of Edward Cullen as to loss of Certificate of Naturalization on the same date. It appears that this vampire must have lost his certificate and needed another. So he appeared in court to obtain a new certificate. I am sure that I will be corrected within a few days regarding this Edward Cullen. Is he the well known vampire that appeared in a recent movie? Was he a forgetful vampire? Was he even a vampire at this time or did that transformation happen later?
