I was glad to read your note:
<Often is was when a man left to marry a woman in the new destination, but
sometimes a family would relocate to places where they felt there would be
better economic opportunities or for family considerations.>
In my day the woman moved to where the man had a job. I had always thought it
strange that my grandfather moved to the town where his bride-to-be lived.
Maybe it made more sense in those days to have the woman live near family.
Is this a common occurrence?
