Mail order brides

I think I have a "sort of" mail order bride story. The GRASSER family lived
across the road from my gt grandfather George KERN in Scott Co, MO. George's
family originally immigrated to Stark Co. OH, then on to MO. George's mother
had a sister, Mary Ann EISENMAN who married an Andrew REESE and stayed in
Stark Co. In 1877, George went to Stark Co. to his aunts and married Caroline
GRASSER, who had just immigrated from Germany. So I think the Uncle of Caroline
told George about his niece in Germany and George needed a bride, so he
proposed before he met her. After they married they immediately came back to MO and
settled down. Now exactly a mail order bride, but I am sure they did not
meet each other until just before the wedding.
