Goofy Ridge, in central Illinois. Just outside of Havana and not too far from San Jose (San Joe's).

Reform Alabama, and for Buck, there is Buck Pennsylvania. Also got a Gap, you guessed it, a gap in the mts where the train goes through, and a Climax too btw. Delaware has Blades, and Virginia has Angel Visit.

In Virginia the Mata river joins up with the Po and the Ni to form the Mataponi which joins the Paumunkey to form the York.

And in Oklahoma, we have "Slap Out" in the panhandle, "Bugtussle" down in the south and "Lo****ah" and "Nowata". "Slick" is another small town. And you notice I live near "Mounds", named for a couple of small hills south of Tulsa.

When I was a kid in Maryland, I lived in "Hollywood", which consisted of a grocery store, a gas station and about 3 houses.

oldcampcook, believe it or not, I've been working on a research project now for several months, to locate ghost towns in OK. I did the same project when I lived up in Michigan as well, so many of the names some people are dropping are VERY familiar to me.

How about "Nuyaka", OK. Named as an adaptation of "New Yorker", if I remember right. Or "Goingsnake", Adair County, named after the name of the county in the Cherokee Nation. There is a "Remus" and "Romulus" Ok, as well as two towns by those names in Michigan. "Kay" County got it's name as when the Oklahoma Territory was originally divided up into counties, they were given letters, A, B, C, etc., until the residents changed it. Kay County was "K County", and the locals decided to keep it, with a spelling change.

I've been through Slapout 8 times. Just a wide spot in the road, and it made my Ghost Town list for this state.

I have more, but I'd have to spend a lot of time going through my list.
