The stories I have heard is about the same. Here is what I have been told thru the years.
There was a family,group of brothers, living in Missouri. They were talking of moving so the brothers deceided to go out into the "world" and who ever came back with the best story that is where they would move. When they got back together,they all had good stories so each one of them move to the state they fell for. One went to Calif.,Ga.,Tex. and not sure of the others, think one stayed in Missouri. Like I said this is what has been passed down.
