My greatgrandmother Annie M. Higgins and her sister Jane were born in Ellsworth, Me and travelled to Louisville between 1850 and 1860. I would imagine it would be closer to 1860 since they were born abt 1842 and 1845.
They are the only Higgins listed in the 1860 Census born in Maine.
How would they have travelled? Train, coach ?
Jane married in 1863 in Louisville to John O'Day. Her first child George was born in Maine in 1864. Later children were born in Louisville,
Annie married in 1866 in Brooklyn, NY. No clue as to how she got to Brooklyn!
