Thomas Booth was not shy either, in June of 1854 he named the new post office in Chichester after himself and his family. That name "Booths Corners" is still around today.
Other county names have faded and quickly. "Ward" in Concord Twp. had it's own post office from the 1880's till 1972. The town, if you could call it that was just south of Concordville by Rt. 322. When was the last time you heard some one use the name "Ward"?
