Letter: On the origin of the name - Damron Creek

Paul Patton writes:
I keep waiting for someone who is well informed on Damron Creek history to explain why this creek is so named because I would like to know myself. However, since no one has responded to date I will simply state that it was named for the Damron family who used to be prominent in this area.

I do not know the names of the first Damrons to live in the area and I do not know if there are any who presently live in this region. However, I do recall some of the family from years gone by, such as Mont Damron who was a prominent member of the nearby community of Dunnville and a rural mail carrier, and his son, Rev. Woodrow Damron, a well known minster in the Christian Church. As many of the streams were named for a family who settled there in the long ago, my guess is that this is also true of Damron Creek. --Paul Patton
