      Bill,

      I don't know much to add. I do know Francisco did not exist until
      after 1865 since it is named for a Confederate officer who served with
      valor. His sword hung on the wall of Green's Store in Francisco for
      many years. I'm sure you also know that after the Francisco Post
      Office was created, my grandfather Charlie Green was Postmaster and
      after his death, his wife Sally became Post Mistress until the Office
      was closed (I think in the '70s).
