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?
