Leaving the south

I was thinking about the circumstances and events surrounding my ancestors that made them decide to leave their place of residence in the south for a new home in the north. How did they travel?  unlike today, I don't think that people back then just decided to move because they needed or wanted a change of scenery or climate. I believe it was hardship, the need of work and searching for a dream, a better way of life for their family.
