Almost an original settler

My brother  still lives with three generations on our original homestead in Ohio.

I guess most people don’t think of themselves as having grown up on a homestead anymore, but Jack pointed out that the land has been in our family for more than 70 years.  That is more than 1/3 of all the time Ohio has been a State.

On the other hand, the oldest company in the world is Kongo Gumi, a construction firm in Japan established in 578 A.D.

It’s still being run by a man with the surname of Kongo.

FLATLAND - BLACK DIAMOND MINES - Antioch, CaliforniaI think that means we need another 37 generations or so on the land in Ohio to catch up.
