Re: Grand United Order of Odd Fellows

My name is Benita Davis and during my research on my grandfather being a member of the GUOOF I came across a picture that I have since identified as being that of GUOOF member is Lexington, Virginia. The photo can be found at the virginia historical society website an exhibit of Michael Miley. The site I spoke with Mr. Ruggles the assistant curator who examined the photo with a magnifying glass and read the badge which had GUO of OF Lodge #2451 or 2461. He also stated one of the men had an additional badge that had PNF on it. During your research do you know what PNF means.

I am not sure if my grandfather is on this picture. There are no existing pictures of my grandfather in the family only a general description. This picture does fit the era my grandfather was born 1879 and died 1930. Mr. Ruggles stated the picture was not older than 1930.

I hope this picture is of help to you.
