For the answer to your question about derivative citizenship in 1916 see

In 1916, would a foreign-born woman automatically derive citizenship
from her American-born husband? Would there be paperwork? Although her
age on her marriage cert is 18, she might have been as young as 16.
It's very unlikely she would have naturalized at that age and even
less likely that her parents would have naturalized by 1916.
