This flagholder was found in Schoharie County NY. It was the only one
in the small cemetery and I have not to date found others. It is on the
grave of John Houck 1832-1909, but there is no guarantee it is located
on the right grave. I found many others in a cemetery in Oneonta of the
fancier design with the train, also of Division 58. I suspect that this
is an earlier version of Brotherhood of Locomotive
Firemen and Enginemen either adding Firemen to their organization
or merging with a group of Locomotive Firemen. At least one of the markers
had the full name of the organization engraved on the back of the marker,
so there is no question about the correct name.
The fancier version on the left is common in several
color variations in a cemeteryin Oneonta NY. The one
above I have seen onlyh one instance of. Both are for
Div. 58 of the organization.
