My Family Lived in Pee Pee

I recently made an unusual find. It's a census record for a family I believe our my relatives. Of course, that isn't unusual. But, what is unusual is the name of where they were living. They were living in a place called Pee Pee!

After seeing this unusual town name, I immediately searched the internet to find out how the town got its name. According to Ohio History Central, it was named after Peter Patrick, an early resident of the area. I wonder if this was his nickname? 

What about your family... did they come from any unusual places?

Do we share common ancestors? I'd love to talk! Please leave a comment or write me at
