I'm in Tennessee and it seems most towns here are named after people associated with the Civil War.
And to think I thought Rochester was named after Jack Benny's man servant. Hmn... Do you know who Jack Benny was? I only ask because you're rather young---in a good way of course.
I know next to nothing about Jack Benny
Very nice fact.
I think most towns get their names from people, don't you.Lubbock (texas) was named after a Col. Lubbock.
