Hi Mike, That is interesting!  I had not seen that graph yet.  We had an interestings speaker from the real estate center recently.  I have been meaning to post the video I took of him but have not yet.

Our Gifford's are all from Kansas but they did come to Independence Missouri with the Mormons.  They headed a different direction when the Mormons split way back when.
