Lapen > Lassen

Supposedly an application for a particular post office from Lassen County, California was submitted as Lassen, California in handwriting that was misinterpreted by the Post Office Department as Lapen. Therefore no post office.

Edward Bonyman, First Postmaster.

1875 July 14, Post Office discontinued and the service moved to Susanville.
