The Monumental Bronze Company of Bridgeport, Connecticut, offered customers many symbols that could be bolted into place on the zinc markers they produced, including symbols that represented fraternal societies that were very popular. The marker above at the City Cemetery at Seymour, Indiana, displays a symbol of three links of chain, one of the most recognized symbols of the Odd Fellows.
Odd Fellows is an fraternal organization that formed in England in the 1700s as a service organization. The American association was founded in Baltimore, Maryland, on April 26, 1819.
