Query: MONTGOMERY of Johnson County

According to the "Biographical Directory of IN General Assembly," vol.1, 1816/99, my G-G-Grandfather Duncan Montgomery represented Johnson County in the IN House 1869, 1871. (Another source listed it as "1869-1871").

Two related questions:
1) How long were terms of office for IN elected representatives during that period? In other words, did he serve 2 one-year terms, or 1 two-year term running from 1869-1871, or 2 two-year terms (one starting in 1869 and another starting in 1871)?
2) Was it required that electees by naturalized citizens? (Duncan was born in Scotland)

Appreciate if you could point in the right direction to answer these questions.

Roy Montgomery
