Hi Linda, Buncombe is pronounced BUNKum.
From your description of Little River I think
it's probably in Alexander county not Buncombe. At one time Buncombe county encompassed all of western North Carolina but
was divided up into different counties sometime in the 1800s.
There's also a Little River in Transylvania
county. Transylvania county used to be part
of Buncombe.
Hope this helps a little, Rita
