About Robert McCloud

[Judge William McCloud's] son Robert, who was the first Postmaster in the county, also served as County Treasurer from March, 1834, to March, 1836, and, in October, 1843, was elected as a member of the Board of County Commissioners, but resigned the office in 1845.

"POST OFFICE AND POSTMASTERS.

Through the kindness of Gen. J. S. Robinson, we have been enabled to obtain from J. W. F. Williams, of Washington, D. C., the following postal history of the Kenton office. He says: " The first application for a post office in Hardin County was made in 1833, to be called McArthur. The following is the record made upon the books of the Post Office Department: `Citizens ask for an office at this place, the temporary seat of justice of the county, and appointment of Robert McCloud as Postmaster. On route 1,617, once a week, on horseback. Granted.' The papers for the establishment were sent in care of Bellefontaine, that being the nearest office. The office was, therefore, established, and Robert McCloud appointed Postmaster, July 18, 1833.

" The next record is as follows:

" ` March 6, 1834, Robert McCloud, Postmaster, resigns, and with citizens recommends the change of name and site of this office to Kenton, now the county seat, three miles distant, and appointment of Alexander Thomson as Postmaster. Hon. Mr. Vance concurs.' The name and site were accordingly changed, March 6, 1834 . . ."
