“Tybee” Means Salt

News article from the early 1950s concerning TIPD Chief David A. McCutchen’s search for the meaning of the word “tybee.” (PDF Source: Live Oak Library, Savannah, GA)
PLEASE NOTE: Although the name of Tybee Island is in fact derived from the word ‘Taube,’ which means ‘salt,’ further investigation has revealed that taube is an Itza Maya, Apalache Creek and Itzate (Hitchiti) Creek word, (not Uchee/Euchee/Yuchi.)
