The Republic P.O. was near the intersection of present-day Snider, Griffin, and Bovendertown Roads, a locality now known as Bovendertown ,near Union Cross. The location was known as Republic in the early and mid 1800's, and came to be known instead as "Bovendertown" after W.E. Bovender established several businesses there in the 1870's.
The Five Mile Fork P.O., I've heard , was near what is today Wiseman's Crossroads. In the 1860's my church, Union Grove Baptist, was serviced by the Five Mile Fork P.O., and my ancestor, George Hobson, who lived on what is today Union Grove Church Rd., was serviced by the Republic P.O.
