No name change. The post office at Canoe Creek, Pa., like thousands of rural P. O.'s across the country was discontinued and the area is served by rural delivery probably out of Hollidaysburg.
Look at the map of Frankstown Township in A. Pomeroy & Co.'s Atlas of Blair and Huntingdon Counties, Pa., published in Phila. in 1873. You will see the Canoe Creek Post Office just off the old turnpike highway leading from Hollidaysburg to Huntingdon, but on the other hand Canoe Creek was never an incorporated place. Your grandfather's family may have picked up mail at that particular post office but could have had their residence along any rural road or lane in eastern Frankstown or even in neighboring Catherine Township, the place where the stream Canoe Creek has its headwaters.
