The commencement of European immigrants to Monroe County began about 1833. The first person to receive his naturalization
papers was John Raddleberger on August 26, 1840.
Judge Sidney Breeze administered the oath of allegiance and made him a naturalized citizen of the United States.
This list contains but a few of the names of the early immigrants. Hundreds obtained their naturalization papers
in other counties and in St. Louis before moving here. Many more, finding no difference between citizenship and
the right of suffrage, took no steps to be naturalized, as the constitution of the State gave the latter the rights
to all who had been residents of the county prior to its adoption.
Listed below are the foreign born citizens, naturalized in Monroe county from August 1840 until April 1850.
