Folks: Had an interesting conversation with a consultant at work yesterday. Her mother grew up in Seventy-Six, MO on the St. Louis Sub; it sounds like her grandfather (or father; can't remember which) took care of having mail ready to go on the mail hook in town. Our talk turned to how the town got its name. Obviously it's not a MP reference and the trackage came through in 1902. I'm wondering if Karl or others might know its genesis. As a corollary, there's not much left in the town apparently, save the dilapidated, vacant house in which her mother lived. Apparently they had also found the old, rotting blind depot sign.
