In reference to Edwin F. Korns, page 246 of the 1949 book "The Genealogy of Michael Korns, Sr. of Somerset County Pennsylvania", apparently quoting a newspaper article, states "A wide awake man, full of vim and push, Edwin F. Korns of Newkirk, has filled various public offices of trust and responsibility and is now serving most acceptably as Postmaster of this City. He is likewise proprietor of the Republican News Journal, the Republican organ of the city and a weekly publication widely known throughout northern Oklahoma. He is a product of Ohio, his birth having occurred June 10, 1852, at. New Philadelphia, Tuscarawas County, Ohio, which was the birthplace of his father, Henry Korns.".
The front page of the September 8, 2005 issue of The NewKirk Herald Journal indicates that Edwin F. Korns was appointed as postmaster of Newkirk during the administration of Theordore Roosevelt, and served in that capacity until spring of the year 1913.
As shown in the links below, page 122 the book "Congressional Record: The Proceedings and Debates of the Fifty-Eighth Congress, Third Session, Volume XXXIX" documents this executive appointment. The third session of the fifty-eighth Congress was Dec. 5 1904 thru March 4, 1905.
