Repopulating a Village

So I moved into a desert village house, but all the villagers died. Like two in game days after a set up everyone was dead, except for one guy which I trapped in my house so he won’t die.

Is there any way I can repopulate this village? There are multiple villages relatively close by if that helps anything. Minecraft 1.14.

The only solution I see now is to transport villagers in minecarts and boats.
