Foote Post Office History

* Note: From 1880 History of Keokuk County: the biography of E. M. Ritchey states: "In 1868 he went to Iowa County at a place called Foote P.O. and there engaged in the mercantile business under the firm name of Henkle, Littler & Company, he was also the postmaster at that point from 1869 until his coming to Keota in 1872."

One focus of the Hinkletown Community History Project is to gather more information and hopefully a photograph of the Post Office and Stores at Hinkletown in the early years. If you have photogrphs or information to share, please contact by Email . If you have problems with this web site, viewing pages, photographs or links, please contact the same address.
