FORGOTTEN POSTOFFICES OF JEFFERSON COUNTY

Taken, with permission, from volume one of the compilation of Ernest Cook's articles on local history, printed for several decades in the "Watertown Daily Times". These books are available from Lyme Heritage Center or from the Jefferson County Genealogical Society. Mr. Cook added to his discussion of forgotten postoffices a good deal of local history, including the names of those people who used them, making these books a valuable tool for today's family researchers.

NOTE: several of the discontinued postoffices from the 1864 Atlas list are also discussed by Mr. Cook.
