In yesterday's Looking Back, I wrote about an auto accident in Elva, Illinois, near DeKalb. I have never heard of this town.
ELVA From Wikipedia
An unincorporated community in DeKalb County, Illinois, about five miles south-southwest of DeKalb. It is shown on maps as early as 1892 and has a famous grain elevator and train station. Joseph Glidden of DeKalb, inventor of barbed wire, developed it and named it after his daughter. A 1910 map referred to it as Elva Station.
