Stingray Point in  VA.  While exploring the area, Captain John Smith was stung by a ray and believed he was dying.  He ordered his men to dig a grave so he could lie in it to die.  After some time, he realized he would not die, but the point was known as Sting Ray Point thereafter.

Deadrise Workboat “Delta Girl” on Jackson Creek, Deltaville, VA. Originally known as Union, the community was forced to find a new name in the early 1900s because there was already a Union post office elsewhere in the state. The name Delta was proposed, because of the shape of the town, as it is bordered by the Rappahannock River to the North, the Piankatank River to the south, and the Chesapeake Bay to the east. There was also a Delta, Virginia already in existence, so "ville" was added.
