There are two hills called Betsy Bell and Mary Gray near the little town in Virginia where I was born and raised (dunno where I'll be when I grow up, but that's not germaine to this discussion). As I recall the local folklore said they were named after two girls who went berry-picking in the woods and were killed by Indians. What an amazing coincidence!
