Uncertain, Dimebox, and Hutto

By the way, the school mascot for Hutto is the Hippos. I kid you not.

-- Rose (, March 01, 2002.

Okay, let's see: Washington (in some form, such as Washington Courthouse, etc) Liberty (Liberty Center, Liberty village, etc) Union (Union City, Unionville, etc)

-- Rosalie (Dee) in IN (, March 01, 2002.

Smithfield, Smithville, something like that.

-- Melissa in SE Ohio (, March 01, 2002.

hearnsvilee,, scottsville, harrison

-- Stan (, March 01, 2002.

Jonesboro, Oak Grove, and Middleton are my guess.

But my hometown of Paragould is the only one in the U.S., since it was created out of the names for two railroad tycoons whose lines ran through the town: Paramore and Jay Gould. The previous name, it was discovered, alread existed, with its own post office in Arkansas, so they had to be creative. And, boy, were they!

-- Randal in Brazil (, March 01, 2002.

I'm going a classical route: Athens, Rome, can't think of a third.

-- Deena in GA (, March 01, 2002.

ROSE - Surely you are kidding about Uncertain.....but, Uncertain, Texas is famous for one thing - Eagles member Don Henley (born in nearby Linden) - visits often and is involved with ecology projects there. Also home of Caddo Lake, one of the most unique lakes in the U.S.

-- SteveD(TX) (, March 01, 2002.

Midway, Fairfield, and Columbia would be my guesses.

-- Fran (on MD's Eastern Shore) (, March 01, 2002.

Number 2. Midway is correct, number 3. Oak Grove is correct. Number one is still out there............

Yes, I was kidding about the names being the most used, but there are Texas towns by those names.

-- Rose (, March 01, 2002.

Its 10:00 pm est; the most used small town name is "Fairview".

-- mitch hearn (, March 01, 2002.

Close but no cigar, huh!

-- Fran (on MD's Eastern Shore) (, March 02, 2002.

Fran, cigars stink; would a fresh pouch of Chattanooga Chew be good enough? Theres a pretty picture of a train on the pouch.......
