Return Home for a Bride?

Your relatives may have married in California in the 1920s, but they may have known each other in Illinois from childhood. Your ancestor may have immigrated in 1850 from Germany and written back home in 1855 to have his family "find him a suitable hometown girl" for a spouse.

It is also possible that your ancestor "went home" to marry only to return to where he had settled as an immigrant a few years before.
