Gartland Continues His Interesting Historical Articles Nelson</b>--this office was established March 31, 1829, with Samuel Snow as the first postmaster.  I have been unable to secure any data concerninghim.  The locality was known for a long time as Beecher's Island from a small island in the river settled early by Hopestill Beecher who was a County Commissioner and 1814.  W.  M. Anderson became Postmaster December 22, 1831 and was succeeded by Joseph M.  White September 10, 1832 who served until October 2,1849 when Charles Horsley took office.  Morgan Seeley, he descended on this well-known Cowanesque Valley family, became Postmaster December 9, 1852 and was succeeded by John Hammond, an early settler August 8, 1856.  Dr. Albert M.  Loop assumed office January 20, 1857.  He practiced, medicine for many years,was president of the County medical Society and a public spirited citizen.  George H.  Baxter took over the position long since discontinued. M.  B. Seeley next took the office and held it from December 6, 1881 to August 26, 1885 when Dr. Loop was again appointed postmaster.  George H.  Baxter again succeeded as Postmaster April 20, 1889, Miss Baxter May 16, 1892 and William H.Baxter in May 21, 1896.  Oliver B.  Blanchard, he descended up early settlers, prominent businessman and well-known throughout the County next succeeded to the office and held it until Frank Selph an attorney was selected for the place January 30, 1914.  He was succeeded by George E.  Selph, as acting Postmaster March 7, 1931 who held the office for a few days until the appointment of Mrs. Lena B.  Smith as postmaster in March 18, 1931.  This completes my record of Nelson.--Joseph F.
