Dear Ms. Glankler,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
If the naturalization occurred at a Federal court, the National Archives at Philadelphia (firstname.lastname@example.org) will be able to assist in locating a record. Based on the time frame in question, it is possible that the naturalization occurred outside the Federal court system, so you may be looking for naturalization records from lower courts. The Maryland State Archives (https://msa.maryland.gov/) is the best resource for naturalizations completed outside the Federal court system. Please note that naturalization records from pre-1900 often contain very few details. Therefore, the specific town you are seeking may not appear on those records.
A website dedicated to Irish genealogy research that is officially supported by Ireland’s Department of Culture, Heritage, and the Gaeltacht is https://www.irishgenealogy.ie/en/. They have a variety of church and civil records available for online use and may be a good resource for continuing your search for Rebeca and James.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
