WAS YOUR ANCESTOR AN ODD FELLOW?

I don’t mean did he bark at the moon and think he was the Prince of Wales-- I mean, did he belong to the Independent Order of Odd Fellows?

WHMC-Rolla has preserved the records of over forty-five IOOF organizations in southern Missouri. The collection also includes some records of the Rebekahs, the IOOF’s auxiliary organization for women. Coverage is very good for Jasper, Phelps, and Crawford counties, with some coverage of other southern Missouri counties.

The collection includes minute books; treasurers’ ledgers; membership rosters; and occasional correspondence.
