Gerania, I am currently involved in a Seance with one if Nanticoke's esteemed and favorite sons..
to wit; Nicholas Aloysius Adamstock.. aka Nick Adams/ Johnny Yuma.

If a can get him to 'rap' back to me in Morse Code, perhaps can give us an inkling as to how the general populace/hoi polloi of his time pronounced Nanticoke.

BTW..if anyone old enough to remember the theme song of the Nick Adams TV show 'The Rebel' ..the opening lyrics were 'Jonny Yuma was a Rebel' sung by Johnny Cash.

Most of us kiddies thought the 'man in Black' was singing 'Johnny, your Mom was a Rebel'

My grandmother said Nanacook. Her sister lived there. I was taken there a few times when I was quite young and I don't remember anything about her.

I do remember Johnny Yuma. I had two older brothers and watched The Rifleman and Combat. Those two ruled the kid TV time.

There was also Big Valley and Bonanza.

Oh my... when my parents went out on the weekend, the older siblings popped corn, turned off every light in the house and watched The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits. I was a leech and cried.

Good training for adulthood.

This thread pop reminded me that I haven't talked to my husband's high school friend Bob who ran Plymouth Poultry for decades in a couple of years.

For those that are unaware Nanticoke is an Native American Indian tribe that moved into the area from the Maryland area because of early English settlers.

Big Valley ..my Dad loved that show ..he liked Barbara Stanwyck in her leather outfit.

We watched so many Westerns..my mom always wanted my father to rearrange the furniture..my Dad used to tell her that she should be prepared to clean up all the horse manure under the TV set when he moved it.

You guys turned all the lights off when your parents went away?

We turned every light ON.

we also stood in front of the refrigerator with the door opened for 5 minutes or longer, and ran around the house with scissors in our hands.

Twilight Zone?
My ex mother in law went to Antioch College, so did Rod Serling..they dated, she was a spoiled, rich and beautiful Jewish American Princess,
Rod was attending on the GI Bill,..he was kind of poor, I think...he made extra money on campus handing out free 3 cigarette packs for the tobacco companies to get the college kids hooked.
