"Lived in." That covers a lot of territory, with many connotations and meanings. One usage implies/indicates residence.
There was a time, not so long ago, in Adair County when we recognized numerous communities--post office areas, voting precincts, church and school districts, and many more.
One may have live at Feathersburg or Inroad, Keltner or Sano, and so on. With discontinuance of small post offices, closing of country stores, and consolidation of schools came disassociation of persons with their place of residence, birth, or ancestral connection.
Beginning in the mid-to-late 1970s many Adair residents became "of Columbia" to others--not themselves. Thankfully there are some instances still in newspapers and on-line sources making an effort to maintain a connection with our neighborhoods of the past.
So, if you reside near Breeding or Casey Creek and are referred to as "of Columbia", don't be offended, just remind people of where you are actually from in this county. Remember our history. --MCW
