Don't be sure there are no gators in the Little Withlacoochee.  They are
endemic to south Georgia.  My husband regulates dams in GA, and sees them
frequently throughout that part of the state.

The Little Withlacoochee (the one in GA) joins with the Alapaha River and
the Suwannee River near Ellaville, FL.   The combined river is known as
the Suwannee, and dumps into the Gulf of Mexico.

If you really want to be confused by duplicate names, ask for "Peachtree
Street" in the Atlanta area.  Last I heard, there are around 80 streets
in the area with the word "Peachtree" in their name.  I can see three of
them from my office!
