From Geneva Daily Times 5 August 1905

A special term of County court for the purpose of granting citizenship to those entitled was held by County Judge Walter H. Knapp at the common council rooms this morning. Final papers were granted to seven applicants and first papers to six applicants. The men granted the full rights of citizenship were: Charles W. Norris, a native of England; Frank J. Organ, a native of Canada; Carl Haag, a native of Germany; Patrick J. Jennings, a native of Ireland; and Pietro Daimico, Salvatore Firore and Francisco Feriari, natives of Italy. First papers were granted to Thomas Murden, James McLarden, S. J. Baroody, Guiseppe Mariano, Vincenzo and Pietro Mariano. One of these men, Thomas Murden, has been in this country over fifteen years and supposed that he received his first papers nearly that long ago. It is the opinion now of Mr. Murden that he was caught by some of the sharks who prey on immigrants around New York and that the first papers issued him were not genuine. Mr. Murden has traveled a good deal and in some manner lost the papers issued him. For some time past he has been endeavoring to secure a certified copy of the papers from the records in New York county but so far it appears that no record of is ever having obtained papers can be found and so this morning he was again obliged to take out first papers and will have to remain in this country two years more before is final papers can be granted.

Application was made by Surrogate G. F. Ditmars, as counsel for Vincenzo Vallelonga, of Geneva, to have the latter's naturalization papers, secured about five years ago, changed so that the proper name would be therein. It appears that when Vallelonga was given his last papers through some misunderstanding the name was written in as Dinesango Daddlanco, and when he returned to Italy last November for his family, he was unable to get passports to come back to America, for the consul in Italy could not reconcile his real name with that of the name on his papers. So he has had to remain in Italy and will have to till the papers are changed. Judge Knapp will grant the motion of the attorney.

Guiseppi Gughlemino, of Geneva, presented his first papers and applied for citizenship, but the papers were not complete and furthermore Judge Knapp had learned that Gughlemino had been in trouble and he read him a lecture in which he told the man that men who got into trouble were not wanted as citizens.
