Trebloc post office was established June 23, 1894, with Joseph M. Colbert as first postmaster. He was a descendant of a prominent Chickasaw family of the area; as the historic tribe was matrilineal, men gained their position by their mother's clan. Most of the Chickasaw removed to Indian Territory (Oklahoma) in the 1830s, but some remained in Mississippi.
