Hi Diane- Dogpatch is correct for the second part of the question! Do you have a guess for the first part as well?
diane September 10, 2012 at 07:15 PM
Hmmm, no I'm afraid I don't know the second part of the question.

Hi Don- I'm sorry but that is incorrect, although probably very appropriate! (:

Tatum, what was the answer to the second part of the Parshallville question? The first part was Dogpatch.
Tatum Ryan (Editor) September 11, 2012 at 02:43 PM
Hi Diane- The question was taken from this source- http://livingston.migenweb.net/townships/hart_atwp.htm "Over the years Parshallville has been affectionally refered to as "The Burg" and at times unaffectionally refered to as "Dogpatch." Just curious- have you ever heard that?
