To be, or not to be, naturalized was a personal decision. One could not vote
without being naturalized and, in some instances, could not own/obtain land.
Since you indicate they weren't naturalized in 1920, I am assuming you are
referring to the census information for that year. Did the census say "AL or
alien" or "PA/papers applied" (for)? If it was the latter, then you should
look for their Declaration of Intent to become a citizen. This is where the
information is (after 1906).
