Hello James,

The reason I have all of this is because I was looking for my family ... Thomas Noonan, who I knew for a fact naturalized in Rutland. Much to my dismay he was not in the huge batch of naturalization records I had access to. I recognized the value of the information in the records I had and that they were not easy to come by, so, I transcribed all the records for everyone's benefit. They only cover years from mid-1830's to early 1900's. No women were naturalized outright in these records. Family members of a naturalized person (wife and minor children) gained citizenship at the same time as the father, automatically. The more recent the year, the fewer records there were in the batch. Luckily, by doing the transcription, I later discovered I had the records for 2 of my other GGGGF's.

One day, over 5 years later, some kind soul saw this explanation in my records intro, and out of the blue sent me the very record I was seeking but could not find. I can't tell you how much that meant to me. They said they got the record from Rutland county. I only had access to microfilm. If you don't live in the area, you can try to contact someone who is or the Rutland Historical Society to see if you can get some help there.

So, I am sorry to say that I haven't been able to help with researching folks' individual brick walls lately. I don't have any genealogy subscriptions, and I'm heavy laden with homework after I get off work. I just transcribed the records and was blessed in return.

My Noonan's are connected by marriage to John P. Carroll, son of Timothy and Honora Crow Carroll.

I wish you the best of luck in finding what you need.
