Herman and Stringtown Post Offices

Trying to see if there might have been a connection between Squire Hill Knapp who was Post Master of the Stringtown post office in 1851 and a Abarah Vangile who was Post Master of the Herman Post office in 1851. Squire had married a Mariah Vanzile in December of 1829 and thinking there might be a mis-apelling of the Vanzile/Vangile last name. The only reference I have found is from the Ripley County Historical Society. It mentions one time the post offices but that is the only referrence. Where they close? Is it possible that Vangile was really Vanzile? Or Vanzile should have been Vangile?
