am interested in learning about the reasons for migration from Connecticut to Ohio in 1837. The family migrated from Voluntown, London County, CT in c1837 to Clinton, County Ohio (Wilmington = city). Clinton County OH is in what was the Virgina Military Lands. Although most families in CT migrated to OH to the northeast "Great Western Reserve", this family did not and I am interested in what may have drawn them to this particular area.
