Prior to the community adapting its name from the Greek word for ‘brotherhood’ (adelphia), the area was previously known as Turkey. The only remnants of Turkey happen to lie within the title of a nearby county park, Turkey Swamp Park.

At the conclusion of The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy flies away from Emerald City at the end of the yellow brick road to return to her Kansas farm.
“We are moving back in time from North (City) to South (Farm), and all the urban vs rural underlying causes of the Civil War.”
Rural (Rural Hall, etc.) then dealt with in NC through Mayberry, etc. Lack of African-Americans in Andy Griffith Show.
We will have more Elton symbols in Miss. later on [and his first US no. 1]: Crocodile Rock<Eagle Rock.
The song was inspired by John’s discovery of leading Australian band Daddy Cool and their hit single “Eagle Rock”, which was the most successful Australian single of the early 1970s (with 1,000,000 sold), remaining at No.1 for a record of 10 weeks. John heard the song and the group on his 1972 Australian tour and was greatly impressed by it. A photo included in the album packaging features John’s lyricist, Bernie Taupin, wearing a “Daddy Who?” promotional badge. The song also appears to have been strongly influenced by songs from the late 50s-early 60s (“when Rock was young”), including Del Shannon’s 1962 “Cry Myself to Sleep”, and “Little Darlin'” (recorded in 1957 by The Diamonds and The Gladiolas). The chorus resembles “Speedy Gonzales” by Pat Boone. While there was no actual “Crocodile Rock”, there was a dance called The Alligator.
Elton “steps up” from Matland and its Crocodile Rock to enter 4 Sticks territory. The year is ’73. Yellow Brick Road territory again. Is he coming or going? Welcome Mat.
Rather bizarre framing of Daniel and Day in Carroll County MD by Barrett (east) and Watersville (west). Roger Pine Ridge anyone? Winfield is a codeword [for the magic book]. Mt. Airy and Taylorsville nearby (Andy Taylor of Mayberry, based on Mt. Airy).
I also can’t help but think there’s a relationship between the oddly named location “Plane No. 4” on the Carroll County map above (to left of Mt. Airy) and this…
… but I haven’t figured out how yet.
Of the four aircraft hijacked on September 11 – the others were American Airlines Flight 11, American Airlines Flight 77 and United Airlines Flight 175 – United Airlines Flight 93 was the only one that did not reach its hijackers’ intended target.
Lineboro *and* Roller in ne corner of Carroll County have already come up here.
Bizarre! I now recall, in looking up “Winesap” related posts on this blog, that Carroll County and its Winfield have already arisen here.
Now it links to Winfield, Kansas!
