Wow. Lawton slid to #5. I remember when it was #3. Is Lawton still growing and what's been going on there.

We moved to Moore in 1951. I think the population then was just under 1,000. It is amazing to me that it would now be so large.

Wow, 1951. I wasn't born yet and my parents had just got electricity for the farm. Months later, they bought a Hoffman TV.

That's really early for TV. Your parents were pretty cutting edge.

We did not get a TV until 1956 which was the same year my parents got a 2nd car. Telephone came in 1962. Was a rather different time.

I looked up the 1950 Census. I don't exactly understand the difference between town and township but this is what it had for Moore:

Moore town: 942 (1950), 499 (1940), 538 (1930)
Moore township: 1595 (1950), 1347 (1940), 1391 (1930)

Here's the link I used:
http://www2.census.gov/prod2/decenni...80v2p36ch2.pdf

The reporting changed after 1950 but the results follow:
1960: 1760
1970: 18761
1980: 35063
1990: 40318
2000: 41138
2010: 55081

Just to let ya know that this census may be off, cause over on the Texas forum they have the population alot lower than expected, and could easily have Oklahoma miscounted to.

If I'm right, if a city wants a recount of their 2010 census, then it can do it, but it has to pay for the expense of doing it.

HAHA, the whole Census is off because the Census overestimated Texas population growth in between censuses? The adjustments to Oklahoma between 09 estimates and 10 census pretty much show that we were probably underestimated slightly throughout the decade in Oklahoma
