Osia Boyce, was the feller who owned and lived on the land where I now reside. He was married to my Great-G-G Aunt Maisy and drove my Mommas school bus in the 40s. Dead way before my times. For over 50 years the tract of land I live on was known as the "Osia Boyce or Ozher Bowie Place" dependes on who was corrupting his name. I build a house here and all that changes overnight. Now it's "Going over to Pats, be back sometimes"

Ok This one is easy for me.I live in a town called Suisun( Patwin Indian for place of the west wind) Here in California. Started in 1841 by Captain Josiah Wing.We border the largest salt water marsh in the continental USA. Lots of waterfowl : Ducks. Lots of interconnecting waterways: Sloughs. Hence sloughduck

Don, welcome! I'm glad to see you made it to the forum. I saw your posts on the pig but didn't realize it was you until your post here about how you became sloughduck! There are some really great people here and I enjoy coming here several times a week to read up, ask questions and share pics. I've met 3 people off the forum here in real life, 2 from Rio Vista and one from Vacaville. All great guys. The forum will really benefit from your knowledge.

That's easy....danboone came from the fact my 6th great grandfather was the pioneer, Daniel Boone. My lineage....Daniel Boone, Daniel Morgan Boone, Ratcliff Boone, Joseph R. Boone, Daniel Boone, Bertha Daniel Boone (maternal grandmother), my father, then me. Happy New Year everyone!

Great story danboone, I can't touch that one. But mine is easy, yes I work with bombs, explosives and the like, and though not a "boy" anymore, one can still dream can't I???

Happy New Year

Hey Redginger,
Great idea for a thread. Lots of interesting stuff here. I love how threads transform with people's history, stories, and humor. My handle, however, has no major subtleties. -Bob
