This was given to me by Tim Stowell,  a co-coordinator for the Wisconsin GenWeb page.

The abbreviation (ch) stands for courthouse. The 1939 reference is a

United States Official Postal Guide - Part 1 - July 1939 - 5th Series - Vol

2, No. 1. I picked it up at the World's Longest Yard Sale a few years ago

for 25 cents.

The 1886 reference is missing its cover and first 13 pages so it's a bit of

a mystery. It appears to have been published by an independent

organization as it has advertisements in the back of the book.

In 1886 there were 1,478 postoffices in Wisconsin
