In 2008, Leo Donofrio dreamed up that business about how a natural born citizen had to be born in the United States to two US citizen parents. Now YOU'VE added your own wacky spin that those two US citizen parents must be married to each other. Whether or not a child is born out of wedlock is of no relevance to that child's nationality if that child is born in the United States-- except, I presume, in the unusual case in which the father was a Blue List foreign diplomat. But that's a matter of REAL law, and not imaginary, wacky birther law, so it's probably over your head.
Apparently we STILL haven't found the nexus of common sense and birtherism.

Jay wasn't a delegate to the convention and his letter wouldn't have arrived in time.
"Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise & seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government, and to declare expressly that the Command in chief of the american army shall not be given to, nor devolved on, any but a natural born Citizen."
Jay is believed to have had the German officer, von Steuben, particularly in mind when he wrote that letter. What did the delegates do? They went out of their way, quite purposefully, to make men like von Steuben eligible for the office of president, and the position of "Command in chief of the american army." So much for your underline.
The United States observes its own real law, made by its Congress and courts-- not imaginary law cooked up by self-marginalizing cranks and crackpots.
