Beattie’s Ford Road in Charlotte, NC, used to lead to Beattie’s Ford on the Catawba River. The ford is now under Lake Norman.
Berryhill Township was named after my ancestors, early settlers in what is now Steele Creek, Mecklenburg County, NC. There is still an elementary school named after them. Berryhill High School was torn down and the Berryhill Baptist Church relocate when Douglas Airport expanded in the 70s.
Toddville (now only Toddville Road) in Mecklenburg County was named after ancestors.
A place called “Reid” once existed in Transylvania County, NC, named after my Reid pioneers.
Shepherd Creek is in the Cowee Valley of Macon County, NC. Dalton Creek in the same area. I’m descended from both families.
Underwood Road in Gaston County, NC, is named after my maternal line. Clubb Mtn in the same area no longer goes by that name. (It wasn’t even a mountain, just a hill.) I’m a descendant of an Underwood-Clubb marriage.
On an old map of Paw Creek, in Mecklenburg County, is a place called “Rhyne.” Hugh T. Rhyne built a large home and gave the place its name. Years later, a train stop was established near the home. It named the area Rhyne’s Station for a short while in the 1930s and 40s. Hugh’s first wife was a Lawing cousin of my grandfather. That was kinda roundabout, wasn’t it? Typical Southern. Gotta give the back story to make one point!
