Who were the postmasters of Frankfort, Will County, Illinois?



My dad, Henry Kampe (1916-1983) has a first cousin LeRoy Mager (1909-1986) who was a postmaster for Frankfort, Will County, Illinois. With this information, I am interested in the office locations and names of other postmasters from Frankfort. This research leads me to the following information.

National Archives microfilm publication M 1131. Record of Appointment of Postmasters, 1832-Sept. 30, 1971. Printed at the National Archives at Atlanta. Scanned for publication by Selma Blackmon.
Postmasters appointed before 1832 are found in the NationalArchives microfilm publication M1131, Record of Appointment of Postmasters, Oct. 1789-1832. Postmasters appointed after 1832 are found in the National Archives microfilm publication M841, Record of Appointment of Postmasters, 1832-Sept. 30, 1971. The Frankfort, Will County, Illinois microfilm records are not available after 1954. Also in Record Group 28 is the Post Office Department Reports of Site Location 1837-1950 on microfilm M1126.

I did view and print copies of the postmaster microfilm at the National Archives at Atlanta. The postmaster microfilm has been digitized and is available on Ancestry.com. The location microfilm has not been digitized.
