1893 Naturalization process

1893 Lena Olson - Brule Co SD Naturalization V6367 P276


The paper appears to be an intention to become a citizen (dated 1893); it is unknown if there another document for a finalization of that process.

It is my understanding that between 1855-1933 Alien women became citizens automatically if they married an American citizen.
In this case, she was married in 1887, Brule Co. to RUTAN.

Would she have used her maiden name vs. her married name in 1893 for this?? Do you know what the instructions were at that time?
