Lafayette No. 3 1854 – Certificate of Standing Hand Written

A very interesting item surfaced this morning during indexing.  A handwritten certificate of standing from Lafayette No. 3 1854.  Very early correspondence for this young jurisdiction.

Lafayette No. 3 – July 4th 1854 “Lodge Flag presented”

Lafayette No. 3 – July 4th 1854 “Lodge Flag presented”

 

Here is a wonderful account of a Oregon Pioneer.  Her insight of a July 4th celebration in 1854 in a small little town named Lafayette Oregon is very valuable.

This flag is most likely lost to history.
