Some people believe that Indian Queens, Cornwall, England was named after an Inn/Bar that stood in that location many years ago which was named  this after Pocahontas stayed a night there on her way to London.  I have researched this and found that the Indian Queens Inn was built long after Pocahontas died, so she could not have stayed there.  Is it a logical conclusion to deem this story a myth?  It is presented as fact by many sources and I find this very confusing.

Most probably another example of not letting facts get in the way of a good story! If you have done the research (pat on the back) then you can feel superior to all those that haven't ;)
