This sure doesn't reflect the 9 different schools between the 50th and 60th census. I lot can happen in a decade!

1960 -- Not yet born
1970 -- Center Township, Clinton County Indiana (8 years old)
1980 -- Ditto
1990 -- Married living in Addison Township, Shelby County Indiana, two children
2000 -- Ditto, but with three chidren
2010 -- Ditto, but with one child at home (they said I could not count the one at college!) Oldest kid on her own now.

Future historians will find me boring.

Gee, Jerry - would that "unpleasant event" you're referring to be your hitting the half-century mark? Believe me, it beats the alternative - we're glad to have you with us!

My census footprint:
