Alfred. Shallowford Road runs north/south in Dekalb County. Knowing Georgia roads as I do, I would suggest that there might have been a community in the northern part of Dekalb by the name of Shalowford. The road leading to it from the west might have carried that same name in earlier times. Thats the way it was then. They were named by the location the road was leading to. Atlanta had many roads named "Atlanta Road" leading to it. But, from Atlanta, all the roads were named for they town they were headed to.Any thoughts?
