Some of these quite easy, others quite hard. Also... it's the "Branch Davidians" not the Brand. Insane cults are a speciality of mine...

I like how you made a lot of these answers obscure enough I had to think about some of them. Took me a bit to think of Xenia and almost didn't get Zephyrhills.

Hey, is that where xenophobe comes from? The greek word, not the town, obviously..
+2

Yes. From the Greek xenos.. alien, foreigner, or the way "Xenia" was used I guess a closer analogue would be "guest." And phobia of course which come from the Greek word for "fear." Xenia would be welcoming foreigners and Xenophobia would be fear of them.

The Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston and died in Maryland. Just a friendly suggestion to differentiate.

Then you were all guessing. If you knew enough about him to know where he was born then you know the city is inextricably linked to.

Sadly, the only reason I knew Xenia was because of that terrible tornado that ravaged their town in 1974. (Yes, I'm old.)
