Dennis, I have the document granting Micheal MARKERT citizenship to the U.S. He had first applied for citizenship before the Clerk of the Inferior Court of Common Pleas of Middlesex Cty., State of New Jersey. on Dec 26, 1885. And then he was granted citizenship on Jan 17, 1888. There is no mention of any family members only a Louis Markert who was his witness. Sorry that is all the information that I have. I am not in the Markert family just came across this document with someother papers being thrown away by the library in Pennsylvania. Would like to find this family line so that I can give it to their ancestors.
