Regarding T.B.. “T.B.” was the name of a 19th century village that stood at the intersection of present-day Brandywine Road and Old Brandywine Road. The village's name reportedly derives from the boundary stone that marked the division between lands owned by William Townshend and Thomas Brooke. The marker had a "T" on one side and a "B" on the other.

This marker went missing when there was road constuction in the area. Now there is road construction again and the pole is lying in the ground not far from where it originally stood. Hope it is replaced someday.
