Tika Follows the Census News

In our daily newspaper for 25 March 2011, the AP had a story explaining how the U.S. population center has shifted constantly west/southwest over the last 220 years........ as this map above shows. Now according to the 2010 census, our center of population is Plato, Missouri, a little town of 109 residents. So in a nation of nearly 310 million people, the 109 residents of Plato, Missouri, have a big claim to fame.  Any of your ancestors from Plato, Texas County, Missouri??? None of Tika's are. She's from Idaho remember.
