Toledo Ohio
How the river was named
This is a joke story told among schoolchildren in Toledo, regarding the Maumee river. The city fathers couldn't decide on a name for a river, so they kidnapped a child and threatened to throw him in unless he named the river. The child refused, so they threw him in. He yelled "Mommy! Mommy!" so they fished him out and called the river the "Maumee".
