Spikenard Post Office

PO Description: 

Each post office record includes one or more documents. Each document may be displayed (by clicking on the title) and may be downloaded. The documentation has been provided from government records, copied for SOHS by Ben Truwe.

This post office was located on a bend of the East Fork of Evans Creek, Township 34S, Range 2W, one mile south of Thomas Mill and about three miles equidistant between Asbestos to the north and Beagle to the south. The first postmasters Joseph Satterfield and WM. Mayfield only lasted a few months. The post office's papers were sent temporarily six miles south to Sam's Valley as neither Asbestos nor Beagle had post offices at that time. 

Where did they go? Following the mail trail of the DPOs of Jackson County, Oregon (SHS 979.5281 S93 2013)
