Who are these “Lodge” brothers of McKinney, Texas?
A lady in St. Louis, Missouri sent us a copy of this old photograph showing a group portrait of Lodge brothers of some kind. We suspect IOOF, because looking at the tent with the crossing shafts behind them you can make out the letters: F, H and C (Faith, Hope and Charity).
This picture was left to Rosemary Benson (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) in an estate/trust from Jimmy Ray McCluskey from McKinney, Texas. He was a Cherokee Indian and his mother’s maiden name was REED. We have Rosemary’s snail-mail address and phone, if needed. If you have or need any more information concerning the old IOOF photo, then email Rosemary Benson at the email@example.com. Thanks
We did some searching on the internet for IOOF lodges in McKinney, Texas and found where their three-story IOOF lodge tumbled down around 1913.If anyone out there has any more clues to the identity of this group lodge brothers, please send an email to Linda - EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org
