Does anyone here belong to the Knights of Pythias in Bellingham, WA or have an email or mailing address for them?
I have a relative, ARTHUR JULIAN EMERSON, who I know was a member of that order. I also have a possible picture of him, and in the picture he is wearing what I think is a KOP pin on his lapel. But I need someone (from the Bellingham order, I would think) to confirm that it is indeed him.
And because my relative died a long time ago (in 1968), it would take a much older person to identify him, unless their membership records include member photos. (And in that case, any additional photos/info would be most welcome, if that's acceptible.)
(In my past research I've found that some orders had their own style of pin, so if someone cannot recognize my relative, maybe they can recognize the pin..? Also, my relative is listed in the KOP Membership Records here: http://wagenweb.org/whatcom/misc/KofPcomb.htm
I'm attaching the picture of my relative in case someone reading this is a member or can forward this to a member.
