    thanks for the article!!! always more info than what I can process at one sitting. to say that I remember 1950 would be a stretch .. but I do remember a particular white goose that lived at “the other place” (that’s what we called it!!!) looking forward to the next one!

    Hi Aunt Barb, Uncle Bob, and Uncle Dave. Fascinating, isn’t it? If you want to explore Limestone Township’s data, you can visit this link: https://1950census.archives.gov/search/?state=PA&county=Montour&ed=47-17#.YlcJUkBuD_Q.link and click on “population schedules.” Starting on Page 2 you will see names that you recognize! Your household with Nana and Pop is on Page 19.
