Along the North Fork in West Virginia

The river names in eastern West Virginia are confusing to me. Back home in Virginia, the North Fork and South Fork refer to headwaters of the Shenandoah, but over the mountains to the west, the headwaters of the Potomac have similar names. As far as I can tell, the river that runs through the town of Cabins is the North Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac.
