Answer to Political Buzz question

How did the South Mississippi towns of Saucier and McHenry get their somewhat unusual pronunciations: SOW-sher and MAACK-henry?

Answer: From train conductors. The two towns were stops on the rail line bringing longleaf timber into the port of Gulfport. The train conductors would call out the names of the towns, and that's how they pronouced them.
