    Census Hello Jennifer,
     
    I took a look through the Clearwater Polk directories (which also include Safety Harbor) and found that the year you are looking for is 1958/59.
     
    The 1957 directory shows a Robert and Sally Anderson residing at 305 7th Ave N and owns home, William and Rachel are not listed in this directory at all.
    The 1958 directory shows just William Shepherd at 305 7th Ave N and owns home. The (SH) means Safety Harbor
    The 1959 directory shows William and Rachel there and own their home, and also William A. Jr. and Lois at the same address. (a digital screenshot of this page has been saved: directory_shepWA_1958FL
     
    I’m not sure why Rachel is not there in 1958, perhaps he moved there before her, or just an error by the directory.
     
    Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with. You may also want to search in our Safety Harbor Herald Archive to see if there is anything of interest.
     
     
    Have a nice day,

    Rachel was also known as Dick. She was a big tomboy and preferred the company of boys. I believe her father gave her the nickname.
