However, in many cases, the individual site also has its own post on R&R, which often provides added information and image. Be wise and use the search function to locate all of the entries for this and other homeplace listings.

Eady Town originally may have been a plantation Negro settlement, for the story goes that when freedom came for slaves in 1865, the community called itself Lincolnville in honor of their benefactor. Be that as it may, Eadyville (pronounced E-di-vil) now takes its name from the family of Negroes named Eady who predominate in the community. Eady is said to be an Indian name meaning “bad Indian blood,” and there is some evidence of intermarriage with Indians here. The community is located in and including the triangle made by State Highways 45, 31, and 23, about
ten miles west of Pineville.
