Can anyone explain to me the lag time between actual immigration date and application date given in the index?
Christiana Rosine Raile's app. date is given as Aug 1865, yet she married Fred Fritz in Muskingum Co. Ohio on 27 May 1865. The Johann Jakob Friesinger family's app. date is 1881/82, and they give their year of immigration as 1881 on the 1900 Ohio census. Thanks.
