Thread Name: What are jubal hounds?
Subject: RE: What are jubal hounds?
I retract the statement I jsut made that "Juba" probably has NOTHING at all to do with 'jubal hounds'.
Why? I actually took the time to read and not skim over Sorcha's comment that "Jubal is a popular name for a hound, red tick, coon, etc....in the deep South" and, Stilly River Sage's posting of the the Biblical "Jubal"...
IMO, both of these give some support to the theory that "Jubal" and "Juba" may actually be related words. I also think that these words & names may all have an African origin...
But according to scientific evidence, if you go back far enough EVERYTHING and EVERYONE has an African origin...
