Elmer Samuel Bassett from Iowa

Question by Lizard7

Elmer S. Bassett is my GGrandfather. My mother gave me his "original" Certificate of Naturalization. It shows that his former nationality was British. I applied through the Freedom of Information act and received his application. (Copies very hard to read). He states that he was born near Sandyville, Iowa. His father was born in Ohio and his mother was born in Indiana. I have his delayed birth certificate where he states that he was born in Iowa.

My question is why would he have to apply for citizenship in the United States if he was born here and already a U.S. citizen?

Any help is appreciated. :)

Yes, my GGrandfather was married twice. His first wife Ester Metcald and his second wife was Ila Berthenia Lukenbill. He did live in Canada and both him and his father had some land. They did not got to England and as far as I know there were no children born outside of the United States.
Thank you for your information and response.
