Migrations from Butler County, Ohio to Henry County, Iowa

Does anyone have any ideas about why so many people from Butler County, Ohio moved specifically to Henry County, Iowa during the 1850s?

I'd read about Quakers moving as a group to Henry County during the 1830s, along with the general history of other types of groups gradually moving westward together over time, but I haven't found any info as to how Butler County residents may have been linked in a way that would draw them to the Henry County, IA general area during that one decade. (some families from Butler Co, OH, I noticed, moved there a little earlier, but I haven't found a Quaker link, or anything else)

Thank you in advance for any tips, pointers, or clues!
