My grandfather Isaac Benjamin RADER arrived in the US about 1882.
Various records state that the family was born in Hungary or in
Isaac's father, Abraham RADER born about 1840 was supposedly born in
His wife Hannah YAKIROWITZ (various spellings) was born Jan 1849
(according to the 1900 census)
Their children were: Ida b 1874, Annie b May 1877, Sarah b June 1880
and Isaac Benjamin b January 1881 in Debrecen (I realize these dates
do not work, but that is what was reported in the 1900 census)
I can find no immigration record for this family. At the time of
Abraham's death in 1898, he supposedly had been living in New York
City for 18 years (according to his death certificate)
In the 1900 census Hannah and her three youngest children say that
they arrived in the US in 1882. Their sister Ida, already married,
says that she arrived in either 1884; in 1910 Ida says her arrival
was in 1886.
If you can provide a record of their immigration, please respond privately.
