Zsigmund and Julianna in Croatia

Generations of the Édes family had lived and died in the Komárom  region now just over the Slovakian border in northwest Hungary.  Zsigmund  Edes, born in Komárom  in 1830 moved 350km south to the city of Vukovar  in Croatia.

There he married Julianna Vill who was born in Apatin, Bács-Bodrog, Hungary. They were married in the Church of St. Philip and Jacob in February 1858.

Why did they move so far away from their family homes? What do you think brought them to Vukovar?
