Now that everyone knows how to say Lucama, anyone want to take a guess on where the name came from?

OK, time's up. It was named after 3 sisters: LUcy, CArrie, and MAry.

Notice Moore County,

The eastern panhandle is not there. It could be very possible, the panhandle was added after the creation of Fort Bragg since northern Hoke would of been completely cut off by the southern portion (you'd have to leave the county to go back to the county!). Afterall, there is the road that is not open to the public that runs between Vass and Raeford (vass road). Its also very possible that Morganton Road in Fayetteville was once all connected to the Pinehurst & Southern Pines portion of Morganton Road but thats subject to debate on that one since Morganton Road is not fully connected anymore (i suspect street name changes occured later in So Pines after the creation of Ft Bragg).

Lucama

If I had a nickel for everyone who pronounced this wrong, I would be rich. This is where I met my husband at. Small as it is they had a dance hall there in 1985.
I call it Lou-cah-ma

I live in bordering edgecombe county, and I do go through lucama to go south 95, but I wouldent call me a native of the town

Not only is Asheville not located in Ashe County, but neither is Asheboro. As for Wake Forest University, it USED to be located in Wake Forest (when it was Wake Forest College), but moved to Winston-Salem 50 plus years ago. Last I heard, the old Wake Forest College is now a Baptist seminary.

A more recent oddity: There is an area in NC called Wachovia, which includes the city of Winston-Salem. But Wachovia National Bank is not headquartered there, but is in Charlotte, instead, which is not part of the Wachovia region. Of course, the Wachovia bank headquarters USED to be in Winston-Salem before moving to Charlotte (a move which I'm sure still annoys the people of Winston-Salem).

Looks like I'm guilty. I never was an English major and never will be. Just comes from growing up in eastern NC I guess.
