    Yes, it does not make sense to speak of a Old Ox Road if there is no New Ox Road. Or was, as the latter may have vanished again...

    The existince of a West Ox Road does not imply the existence of a East Ox Road. There may have been a Ox Road to which a West Ox Road may have been added. There would have been no reason to change the name of the former.

    Maybe it was named after an old ox?

    Maybe there was an ox, and another ox to the west of it?
    Maybe to the east there was another, but it was named Ollie Oxen, and it got free?

    it may, however, explain why the name Dulles Crossing is unexplained.
    Maybe John Foster was walking along and crossed paths with Allen... they were brothers, you know. Or maybe one or both crossed paths with their sister, Eleanor. Or maybe Eleanor and one of the brothers crossed paths with the other brother. OR, maybe they all three used the same path and other people saw them at the same place so often they started calling it Dulles Crossing... yeah, I bet that's it!

    I had a computer with GPS software that I used for off-roading. It was a Toshiba and was called Toby Juan. Its replacement is called Lost Juan. There had been a Little Juan and Big Juan, but I still have Mega Juan.

    The cause of the slow traffic and grid lock in northern Virginia is the people who live there. They are lip lazy and shorten Northern Virginia to NOVA. Not "nova" as something new or a new star, but "nova" which in Spanish means "It does not move" and when used in reference to motor vehicles means "its broken down".
