Sant’Anna do Paranahyba, Minas Gerais (SMG-2765)

Mappa de Minas Geraes, 1910

Other names: Sant’Anna da Barra do Espírito Santo, Santana de Patos (1920)

This Sant’Anna in the Minas Gerais province was since September 1844 the district of Sant’Anna da Barra do Espírito Santo in the municipality of Patrocínio, situated over 500 km northwest of the province capital Ouro Preto. In July 1872 the name was changed to Sant’Anna do Paranahyba and the locality was subordinated to Santo Antonio dos Patos. In December 1943 the toponym switched again, to the actual Santana de Patos, now in the municipality of Patos de Minas.

We have found two dates for the creation of the post office. Paula Sobrinho (História Postal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, 1997) asserts it took place in April 1885, but as early as July 1882 an agency was announced in the Rio press:

Jornal do Commercio, Rio de Janeiro, July 31, 1882

 No postmark from the Empire has appeared until now.

Diese Sant’Anna in der Provinz Minas Gerais province war ab September 1844 der Distrikt von Sant’Anna da Barra do Espírito Santo im Município von Patrocínio und lag über 500 km nordwestlich der Hauptstadt Ouro Preto entfernt. Im Juli 1872 wechselte der Ortsname zu Sant’Anna do Paranahyba und der Ort ging an die Gemeinde Santo Antonio dos Patos.

Wir haben zwei verschiedene Daten fürs Postamt gefunden. Paula Sobrinho (História Postal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, 1997) schreibt dafür den April 1885, aber bereits im Juli 1882 wurde eine Agentur in der Presse aus Rio angekündigt:

Jornal do Commercio, Rio de Janeiro, 31. Juli 1882

Kein Stempel aus der Kaiserzeit war bisher zu sehen.
