I continue with area postmaster lists and information about their small post offices, most of which no longer exist. Many of these post offices have names I had never heard of and were located in little hamlets that no longer exist. I find it is interesting to locate these places on a current map. Occasionally an old building that was once a general store still remains at a crossroad where there was once a little village.

I’ve gotten too big for my britches!
This old saying seems appropriate after another week of website woes.
Last week I featured a list of postmasters in the village of Willshire from 1822-1971.
During the time period from 1858 through 1971 there were five other post offices in Willshire Township–Abanaka, Glenmore, Greenwood/Wren, Leslie, and Schumm.
Fingers crossed that the notification e-mails for this blog post went out to Karen’s Chatt subscribers today and that they will continue once again.
Notifications stopped being sent out before Christmas and we have been working to correct the problem ever since.
In recent blog posts I listed the appointed postmasters in northern Mercer County from the 1840s through 1971, in the townships of Black Creek, Liberty, and Dublin.
Today I continue that list with the postmasters in another local town, Willshire, in Van Wert County.
