Census data from later years indicate that she was a naturalized citizen. Is it logical to assume that since her parents were not there to include her in a naturalization process that she would have had to become naturalized herself (as opposed to being naturalized by inclusion with someone else's petition)? 
Rick, it is not logical to assume anything based on census records, except possibly that the person shown in the census was already born when the census was taken.  The census records just indicate what someone told the census taker.  They do not indicate whether it is true, and it often isn't.
