When it comes to what we've been told,
I take on the "theory" that people didn't travel much or move families very far.

(comes from being a person who does want to know what's over the next ridge)

As I have read stories and memoirs, I have relished stories like Joseph Walker, born in Kentucky I think, and died in California; Peter Kalifornsky, whose family name comes from the ancestor who went from Kenai, Alaska to California and returned; the mummified bodies on the Silk Road with round eyes and red hair; and the desert people who have stories of watching sunset in the great ocean to the west.
