Dawfuskie River

The island south of Hilton Head is known by its Indian name of Dawfuskie Island, variously spelled D’Awfoskee, Daufuskie, etc.; the deep channel between the two islands is designated as Dawfuskie River and as Dawfuskie Sound on several early maps.  It is now called Calibogue Sound.
