Several of the lines of my family tree came to Rockwall County and show up there for the first time on
the 1880 census. By the 1900 census, all of my ancestors have left Rockwall County and re-settled in Van Zandt County. If it were only one of my ancestors, I wouldn't think it odd, but there are five different relatives who made the move. Does anyone know what drew these folks to Rockwall County pre-1880? What would prompt so many to move to Van Zandt County?
