I believe this is the term for the item for which I am looking. It threads into the brake boss on the fork and the cantilever is then attached with an allen bolt.
Could someone tell me where I might be able to buy these online? No luck at Nashbar, Performance, Jenson, etc. I am also wondering if there are many different types. I have one that fits the fork and need a second to match.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Do you need to find them online? Your LBS probably stocks them. Maybe Harris stocks them.

I know a store about 40 mi away stocks them. I called my LBS to find out if they had any around and they claim to not "stock that kind of thing in the winter " when they are selling ski/snowboard stuff. I find it hard to believe they don't have a bin of the things sitting around but, I am reluctant to ride down there to find out when they were of so little help on the phone.

Try "Loose Screws" for an online source.
Those pivot posts aren't a real common replacement item so an LBS having the one that you need might be iffy. Your best bet might be a BMX oriented shop. Incidentally, there are several different ones so you have to find the one with the right diameter and threads to fit your frame.
