JACKSON/BLENKENSOP, Maverick Co., 1880s

I'm attempting to research m paternal g-grandparents' families: Henry JACKSON & Mary Emma BLENKENSOP. According to a Naturalization Index from the National Archives Ft. Worth Regioanl Office, Henry JACKSON filed a Declaration of Indent for Citizenship on 13 Oct 1888. The index also states he was 40 when he filed the declaration, was from Great Britain, & was granted citizenship on 25 Apr 1899. I think one had to wait five years from arriving in the U.S. to file a declaration, so I put Henry JACKSON & Mary Emma BLENKENSOP's arrival in the U.S. at about 1883.

The only other info I have regarding my g-grandparents: Henry JACKSON was from West Hartepool, County Durham, England; &
Mary Emma BLENKENSOP was from Greatham, County Durham, England. They settled in Eagle Pass &/or Wilder, Maverick County, Texas.

Hannah & Alfred (Alf), the first two of their six children were born in England. Annie, Ernest, Mamie, & Dorothy were born in Texas.

Hannah married Otto GERLINE & settled in Michigan (first in Three Rivers & then in Kalamazoo). Dorothy, my grandmother, married Henry Edward QUINN on 22 Jul 1909 in Three Rivers, Michigan, & settled in Richfield Springs, New York. Dorothy was born 5 Dec 1885 & died 20 Apr 1958.

All I know of Henry JACKSON & Mary Emma BLENKENSOP is stated above. I would appreciate any information regarding them & their families (siblings, parents, ancestors in England, ect.). I would also like to know why there were 11 years between Henry JACKSON filing a Declaration of Intent & his being granted citizenship. (Dorothy JACKSON's father-in-law, arrived in New York in 1866, filed a Declaration of Intent in 1870, & was granted citizenship in 1872.) I would be eternally grateful if someone could obtain for me a copy of Henry JACKSON's naturalization papers: Declaration of Intent - County Court: Record of Declaration, Vol. 1, p. 132; & Grant of Citizenship: District Court: Civ. Min., Vol. 3, p. 353. I realize I could go to a FHC, but I would rather have the copies come directly from the Court records because it will come straight from the original paperwork. I wrote to the couny court months ago & am still awaiting a reply. Hence, I ask for help in getting copies of the naturalization papers.

Thank you for your time, help, & consideration.

Kindest regards,
