Are you purposely trying to confuse where a parent was born (irrelevant) with what the parent's citizenship is at the time of the child's birth?
What was JQ Adams' wife's citizenship when Charles was born, not where was she born?

John Quincy Adams' wife (Louisa Catherine Johnson) may have been considered an American because of her father. They were married in London in 1797 and only came to the US in 1801. Charles Francis Adams was born in 1807. I don't know if his mother became a naturalized citizen or if that was considered unnecessary.
I liked what I saw of Ted Cruz during the filibuster--more impressive than Marco Rubio. His father came to the US in 1957, 13 years before he was born, and eventually became a US citizen, but I don't know when that happened. If it was after 1970, the Democrats are sure to claim that Cruz is not eligible to become President.
