 +  * For years a religious sect in a small town in provincial England worships the demon Nawor, but their prayers remain unanswered until a man named Zebabeb Dodson discovers that they have been worshipping Nawor incorrectly,​ and they must use certain ancient talismans in order for their pleas to be heard. But before they can secure those talismans, the demonologists are driven out of their homes by angry villagers, and they flee to the new world. Avoiding the colonies of Jamestown, Plymouth, and Charlestown,​ the colonists sail down a long, broad river and on a strip of land establish Rood Point. The colonists befriend a tribe of Native Americans in order to steal ancient talismans needed for worship, but when the theft is found out, they are attacked. Before they are slaughtered,​ Dodson appeals to Nawor for help, but the demon only has the power to restore four of them to life for one day each century. The colonists are wiped out, and Rood Point is left abandoned for at least another century before Gateway City is founded at the site. //Note: Rood Point is known as the Old Quarter of Gateway City by the 20th century. Rood Point is loosely based on the Roanoke Colony in North Carolina, which is the state in which Gateway City resides (see The Spectre #1), and is likely located along the Chowan River.// ["​Pilgrims of Peril,"​ The Spectre #6 (September-October,​ 1968)]

He is soon drawn forward in time to 1967, where he inhabits the body of his descendant, Ambassador Joseph Clanton, before battling the Spectre throughout time as he possesses the bodies of several ancestors. //Note: This story indicates that Gateway City is definitely along the coastline rather than inland. It is likely located on the Carolina coast, ​possibly ​in North Carolina ​or South Carolina. But it might also be anywhere along the coast in the western United States, even the southern Caribbean coast.// ["The Sinister Lives of Captain Skull,"​ The Spectre #1 (November-December,​ 1967)]+  * Cap'n Skull, pirate captain of the Bonny Venture, buries his treasure ​near Rood Point on the future site of Gateway City in North Carolina.
