Oklahoma Postal History Talks Cleveland – OHIO???

The March meeting of the Oklahoma Postal History Society will be held  this Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM at St. Luke’s Methodist Church, Room 207.

Joe Crosby will present a very interesting program about CLEVELAND COUNTY  POSTAL HISTORY  Joe has asked us to please bring any postal markings from Cleveland County post offices other than Norman, Moore, Noble, and Lexington, and even anything really special for any of those four towns as well. 

 As usual the meeting will be preceded by dinner at Louie’s midtown at 1215 N. Walker at 6:00 PM for those that don’t like to miss a meal.

See you there.

By the way, don’t be too surprised if there is nothing presented about Ohio.  Well, unless Joe decides to sing  a few songs from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Post Offices In The Unassigned Lands

Dear fellow Oklahoma Postal History Society members,

This year at OKPEX I will be giving a talk on the post offices established in 1889 in the Unassigned Lands as a result of the land run. I will also be exhibiting this material.

I have yet to see the following list of covers and I am hopeful you can help me obtain them or, at least, provide a scan of these so that I may be more authoritative and complete in my presentation. All of the following post office names were used in more than one county (except Idelah) so please be careful to note the year of your cover.

Will You please look for the following covers during the dates listed below for me and report if you have them or know where they may be located?  I know some of these existed in 1965 because Signorelli and Cardwell listed some of them.

Idela                   1889-91

Cimarron City     1889-94

Lincoln                1889-94

Lisbon                 1889

Harrison              1889-90

Rock Island         1889-98

Many thanks for your efforts in helping with this. I am hoping to hear from you soon.

Also, I will be giving a program updating more complete information on RFD and 20th Century Fancy Cancels from Oklahoma at this next Tuesday’s (Feb 14, 2017) meeting.  I am looking forward to seeing you then.
